Trivia

Multiple newspaper reviews compared the film to the films of Dick Maas, the director of The Lift (1983), Amsterdamned (1988), Sint (2010) and Prey (2016) and sometimes referred to as the "father of Netherhorror". See more »

Goofs

Volvo XC90 has standard 4 wheel drive, the scene with spinning front wheels trying to get out some muddy road seemed not very realistic for a 4WD SUV. See more »

It's ok.
13 October 2020 | by tibbletoad-86112See all my reviews

The movie starts of well enough, but then we meet the main characters and the movie tanks, the antagonist is well enough but lacks a certain creepiness. The protagonist is just a douche that I did not feel much sympathy for.

But for a Dutch horror/road movie it's not that bad but it could have been so much better.
