Delirium of horror
12 January 2009 | by (United States, CA) – See all my reviews

Interesting plot, pure minimalist horror. It starts off well when Mary Murdock (played by Laura Breckinridge) drives home drunk from a party and has a near-accident on the road. She thinks she just missed a tire in the road, but she has another thing coming. Later, she discovers a half-alive dude dangling from her bumper in the garage.

He tries to kill her, then she accidentally kills him and then her whole life and all her plans turn upside down. Some have compared this to a similar-themed movie "Stuck" or "I Know What You Did Last Summer", but beyond the obvious plot of the beginning, I didn't see the similarities. For example, in "Stuck" the girl knows she's hit a guy and doesn't do anything about it. In this movie, she doesn't realize till later and ends up being stalked by him.

The action sequences were not bad, some very exciting. It had some eccentricities and odd things that made it stand out from the usual fare. Like the whole thing with her being tied to the bumper... I hadn't seen that before in these kind of movies. One thing is there could have been a bit more suspense in the middle part. It seemed like the film went into her 'delirium' mind so much we lost touch there for a while with reality, but maybe that was the point. The actors are fine (Kevin Corrigan as the wacky bi-polar psycho is freaking weird), creepy mood and there are some unexpected moments.
