Tired and irritable, Zakes Abbott drives home along the motorway, his girlfriend, Beth, asleep beside him. Failing to spot his exit he speeds across the causeway, cutting up a white van and barely avoiding an accident. Apoplectic with rage, the truck driver gives chase, and as he violently overtakes the tailgate flips up revealing a woman bound and bloodied in the back. But before there is time for a second look, the door is slammed shut and Zakes is left bewildered and wondering if what he saw was real. Later at a service station, Zakes' fears grow when Beth goes missing, and as he begins a frantic search, he is enticed into a deadly game of cat and mouse on the deserted motorway. But being the sole witness to the earlier scene, how does he convince others of his desperate need for help?

When Zakes is looking for Beth in the service area, he crawls under a lorry in the lorry park in the pouring rain, in the next scene inside the service area, he appears clean and dry, surely he would be covered in oily marks. See more »

I had this flick for almost 5 years on hold to watch it simply because many people said, don't watch it it's not worth it well I must say that I enjoyed it. You can see that it is a low budget flick because to be honest there aren't any real effects to see.
But that doesn't make it a bad flick. I have seen worse. It do has a great first 45 minutes then it falls a bit in pieces but the end picks up fine again. Okay, the problem viewers had with this flick is the fact that nothing is explained. That's a fact but it didn't bother me at all. You just want to know how things are ending. The only problem is indeed the lack of continuity or an actual story in some parts. Once at the stopping place on the M1 one of the guards do actually believes Zakes (William Ash) and things go wrong but again, suddenly we are back on the M1 and nothing happens further in the story with the guards.
On part of the gore or horror it also has a low value but still combined with the score it actually works. We do go deep into the characters of Zakes and Beth (Christine Bottomley) before things go awry. And so you are involved into their story.
Better then mediocre I should recommend it to horror buffs who like suspense or people who are looking for a good thriller.
