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

As survival films go, this one isn't bad but doesn't bring anything new to the table. It's more of a thriller than a horror because there's really not much blood and gore to speak of. That said, the twist ending is a nice surprise although most of the film plods along quite predictably. There's some great acting and impressive cinematography, so I assume there was a decent budget for this movie. It's just a shame that no matter how much money you throw at something, a mediocre story is still a mediocre story. The script was entertaining though and evoked a real sympathy for the characters, so it's worth a watch if you enjoy this genre.
