Storyline

On Christmas Eve, ten strangers board a bus traveling across Texas. Far out in the wilds they collide with a meth-addicted biker. Forced off the road by other members of the gang, the passengers take refuge in the hell hole of an abandoned scrap yard. They use improvised weapons and sheer guts to mount a defense against the murderous bikers but, as their numbers dwindle, they realize that their survival depends on doing the unthinkable. They must go on the offensive. Written by Sabbatical Pictures

User Reviews

Great siege thriller! Super!
6 November 2007 | by turtle73See all my reviews

I just saw a screening of Exit Speed, and without giving away any spoilers, all i can say is WOW! it gave me an adrenaline rush... kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time! and I'm not even usually a fan of action movies, i just happened to know someone working on it.

Im not sure if this is going to have a national release, but if it comes out near you, it would be well worth your time!

I suppose there were a few things that could have been done differently, but I don't even remember at this point.

Overall, I thought it was great, considering it had a (considerably) low budget. I look forward to more 'Stokes/Ziel' movies in the future!
