Mallory Rutledge is driving her fiancé's truck to Denver to meet him and get married. While driving in the lonely road, she talks to her sister Ella and decides to take a detour to visit the Grand Canyon. Out of the blue, the truck stops and Mallory can get no service in her cell phone. However the gentle drifter Christian Laughton offers to fix the car and Mallory accepts. Then she offers a ride to him and when she is driving, he says pornography to her. She asks him to leave but he shows a knife and tells her to go to a derelict motel. Mallory sees that the psychopath Christian is not wearing the seat bell and decides to throw the truck off the road in a curve. But the leg of Mallory is trapped in the overturned car and Christian leaves her without any help, in the beginning of Mallory's worst nightmare. Will she escape from the vehicle and from the psychopath? Written by

In the first few moments of the film, the main actress is having a conversation with a man. When the scene first starts she is clearly not wearing bra under her white tank top. As the movie progresses it changes and she has a black bra visible beneath the tank top. In the context of the film there is no way that change could have taken place. It must be a wardrobe goof.

If I had to compare this to another movie it would be "Open Water" except in a car with a killer instead of a shark and a more satisfying ending. In essence this is more of a slow survival movie with a faster paced "survivor girl vs killer" finish.
All of the production, acting, directing, etc are well done. However, as others have mentioned it doesn't really bring anything new to the table, but then again, does any movie these days?
In the end I liked it. If you are looking for a full blown horror movie, this is not what you are looking for. If you like movies like "Open Water" and "127 Hours" then this is probably worthy of a watch.
