Trapped in an isolated gas station by a voracious Splinter parasite that transforms its still-living victims into deadly hosts, a young couple and an escaped convict must find a way to work together to survive this primal terror.
Lucas and Clementine live peacefully in their isolated country house, but one night they wake up to strange noise... they're not alone... and a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night.
For the past 20 years, Frank Harrington has grudgingly driven his family to celebrate Christmas with his mother-in-law. This year, he takes a shortcut. It's the biggest mistake of his life: The nightmare begins. A mysterious woman in white wanders through the forest, leaving death in her wake. A terrifying black car - its driver invisible - carries the victims into the heart of the night. Every road sign points to a destination they never reach. The survivors succumb to panic, to madness; deeply buried secrets burst to the surface, and Christmas turns into a living hell.Written by

I adored this movie. I've always liked stories about people trapped in cars in the dead of night, (and if you do too, also check out the new release "Wind Chill") but this one is especially creepy. Ray Wise and Lin Shaye are very good actors and they had some moments that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. There's a lot of creepiness in general with the woman in white, the black hearse and just the desolate shots of traveling the same stretches of road over and over and over. I've seen this film three times now because I watched it with both of my daughters also, and it still got to me. They both enjoyed it too, and they're tough critics. Check it out. It's a fun little spine tingler with some very cool moments, yet manages to keep the gore under control.
