A family quarrel tragically ends up with a murdered wife. The husband, after cutting her body into pieces, hides it in the car boot, hoping to get rid of it later. Despite the attempts to mislead the police, he is shortly arrested. Andrey and Olga can't believe their luck! They just made an excellent bargain in buying a second hand car, a car they always dreamt of. They don't realize yet that they got into a trap! There is someone else in the car... someone who will turn their journey into a terrifying hell.
OK, Ill start with a caveat that Russians only start to produce their own horror movies, and in this genre, it is hard to tell anything new, right? So don't go too hard on this road trip movie of a dysfunctional family of a cheating husband, a suspicious pills-addicted wife and a BMW car that has had a dismembered body of a woman hidden in it before. (the last part is true, it has been indeed a real crime). So you get the entire movie of ghosts visions, dark road speeding, psyched up conversations and spousal paranoia. All in all, the first hour is really good, but last twenty minutes feel like the makers have not decided who actually is guilty of all the crimes. But I'd still recommend to watch it as a really good suspense movie genre in the making. The actors are pretty well as well, and the highroad tripping does not feel like it is in Russia at all ;)
