Mallory Rutledge is driving her fiancé's truck to Denver to meet him and get married. While driving in the lonely road, she talks to her sister Ella and decides to take a detour to visit the Grand Canyon. Out of the blue, the truck stops and Mallory can get no service in her cell phone. However the gentle drifter Christian Laughton offers to fix the car and Mallory accepts. Then she offers a ride to him and when she is driving, he says pornography to her. She asks him to leave but he shows a knife and tells her to go to a derelict motel. Mallory sees that the psychopath Christian is not wearing the seat bell and decides to throw the truck off the road in a curve. But the leg of Mallory is trapped in the overturned car and Christian leaves her without any help, in the beginning of Mallory's worst nightmare. Will she escape from the vehicle and from the psychopath?Written by

Have you ever watched a movie, particularly a horror movie or thriller, in which you really didn't like the protagonist? This was that type of movie.
Mallory's (Juliane Hough) car breaks down on her way to Denver from San Francisco. As fate would have it some hunky guy is hiking and helps her get on the road again. She returns the favor by giving him a ride and lo and behold he's not such a good guy.
This rehashed, good-looking-bad-dude-whom-you-trusted plot is so tired and they did nothing to make it likable. And the main character, Mallory, whoa buddy. She was everything wrong with a petite pretty blond. She made one poor decision after another which is why she ended up in a terrible situation. Then couple that with her hoarse voice and she became more annoying.
This movie was replete with a flimsy predictable plot, impossibly absurd lead character and bad acting. I mean, even the lines were of the 25 cent gumball variety. This was a movie I just wanted to end... soon. It could end with Mallory living it could end with her dying and I wouldn't care one way or the other... just end.
