Storyline

It's after midnight when Mel and Jules, two young women, return to LA from holidays in Mexico; they jump in a shuttle to head downtown. The other passengers are a nervous accountant and two frat boys, one who's been hitting on Jules. They're soon on unfamiliar, deserted streets - to avoid a traffic jam, says the driver - then things go from bad to worse. What's going on and where are they headed? Guns, knives, chains, a tattoo, and medication play in the resolution. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

Jules' gag changes drastically after the shuttle crash. Before, it was very thick and wrinkled. But when she wakes up after the crash, it's barely wrapped around twice and perfectly smooth. See more »

User Reviews

 
Well done intelligent thriller. Awesome.
26 August 2008 | by film_maven-1See all my reviews

While there's not a lot of blood and gore for the low-brow slasher devotees, I admired the way the screws slowly tighten as the story unfolded, and the tension cranked up to relentless. Nothing cheap, fast or easy here. Especially loved how everything strange that happened during the course of the night ends up fitting together and explaining all the seemingly random events. This is a smart, compelling film that draws you in and doesn't let go.

Best of all, the climax is original, brutal, gut wrenching and not at all expected.

Highly recommend.
