It has something, but not much, 11 November 2015
Author: begob from The Undertow

A laconic drifter picks up a pretty hitcher, after she survived a crash when kidnapped by her violent ex-husband. Together they set out on a strange journey.

Odd road movie that gives away too much in the IMDb description and the opening, noir-style voice over. The direction and writing are naive, probably taking on more than they can handle, but the concept is interesting and needed more sophistication for full delivery. Shades of Tarantino and Lynch, but the dialogue is no more than functional, the editing klutzy, and there are plenty of impracticalities to take you out of the story.

A previous reviewer's point about the spider-rope metaphor is good, but the insect-arachnid sequences were needed to remind us of stuff the screenplay couldn't deliver. This is literal enough to be a horror, albeit one that lacks guts.

Lead actress is good, touch of Chloe Sevigny in her close-ups. The threatening characters needed to be a lot more intense and stylized.

Music suited it perfectly, the most enjoyable part of a short but fairly slow running time.

Overall, slightly interesting so I mark it up to 5.
