When two bus crash survivors awake to discover that they are the only people left in their small town, they must form an unlikely alliance in a race to unravel the truth behind their isolation. As strange events begin to unfold, they start to question whether the town they know so well is really what it seems. Written by
The name of the town in which Ana and Freddy grew up is Pearl. Wild-cultured pearls are best known from being discovered in oysters and other mollusks, but the allegorical use here is that it is a precious center of a town that is apparently going to be destroyed by the Black Fog (which has, of course, another meaning, not to be spoiled here). Just as a pearl is surrounded by the mollusk that produced it, and just as the mollusk is surrounded by the sea, the town of Pearl is surrounded by what appears, at first, to be a home-like quality, which is soon surrounded by a greater darkness.

In the opening bus scene, while Freddy is drawing Ana, the camera cuts away to another angle where we see Freddy wearing a tie for a few seconds before going back to an open shirt Freddy again. See more »
In my opinion, there's nothing like a good 'to-be-continued'.

At the end of the credits is a short scene that shows Ana and Freddy on a packed bus. She is sleeping on his shoulder and he looks content. See more »
Wow... What a nice surprise this film is. Watched it one evening and thought it was going to be just another minor league chiller. Instead, I found a thriller-chiller-mystery that is remarkably made on what may be a small budget... It doesn't look like a small budget, because everything is done with striking ability. One does know the genre at once, but one can enjoy the swirling 'who-what-where-how' for its entire length. The two actors show enormous potential and do absolutely super work. I want to see more of them...and more of the director of this indie. When you mix 'Outward Bound' with a contemporary appearance and then zap the audience with nicely executed twist, you have a fine piece of cinema. Congrats to all.
