Kathy is supposed to drive Lizzy to her father's home in the morning, but she sleeps until late afternoon and they have to travel during a rainy night. While driving through a lonely road through the woods, Kathy hits a wolf that breaks her car, leaving them stranded on the empty road. They call 911 and while waiting for the tow truck and an ambulance, the wolf disappears from the road. When the tow truck arrives, the mechanic Jesse tells that he needs to fix the axle and an oil leakage to tow her car. While repairing the vehicle, a monster attacks him but neither Kathy nor Lizzy note. When they seek Jesse out, they realize that they are not alone in the spot.

I have definitely been waiting for Bryan Bertino to once again create a horror film that is on the quality of The Strangers. Although this one is pretty decent and does have adequate atmosphere, the screenplay really drags it down. The performances are really good but it just follows a very predictable and quite clichéd formula. Some of the character decisions do not make the most sense and it seems like the film drags things longer than they should be just to hit that 90- minute runtime. It's a shame because the first act is quite strong. Saying all of that, it's still merely decent. Not exactly very good, but average.
