On Christmas Eve 1979, Cameron and his pregnant fiancée Beth are traveling through the Outback of Australia to spend Christmas with Beth's parents. In the evening, Cameron is driven off the road by a reckless driver and the couple decides to stay in a low-budget hotel in the small town of Montgomery. Late at night, Cameron is hungry and cannot sleep, so he decides to look for a restaurant. He leaves a message for Beth, but the Chinese Sky Dragon is closed and his car runs out of gas. When he returns to his room, Beth is missing and he calls the police. Cameron accuses the cynical and unhelpful hotel receptionist, Marv, but the police office does not believe him. He is arrested when he tries to hit the receptionist but while in the police car, he gets Underwood's gun and takes control of the situation. Meanwhile, Beth awakes in a bathtub full of ice and with a C-section. She seeks out her baby and finds four other women in the same situation. Soon they discover that somebody has stolen...

28 February 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

There isn't one boring scene in this movie. This must have been a 'low budget' movie but the result is great. A couple is on their way to spend Christmas with their parents. They decide to stay a night in a motel. When the man unsuccessfully tries to buy a take away meal somewhere at Christmas eve he discovers his wife is missing when he returns to the motel. - It turns out this was all just a prelude to the real movie which starts when we see Beth waking up in 'the clinic' in a bath tub full with ice ( as on the movie poster ). Her baby is no longer with her. We follow Beth in her quest where she is, what happened and most of all: what happened to her baby? - Most horror movies are completely over the top. This one isn't it, unlikely perhaps, what happens to Beth in this movie could happen to a girl out there, who thinks she is safe. It is a horror movie so expect blood and violence but again, very realistic. I rate this movie as a seven which means I don't think this movie will disappoint you in any way.
