A woman with her young daughter is driving somewhere on a desolate road when they get a flat. A stranger shows up to help her replace the flat. He warns her to leave, that it's not a good place to be. A sinister tow-truck is also driving around. They arrive at a gas station where the girl gets something to eat. The mom leaves her alone for a bit and when she returns, her daughter is gone. There's also some sports team made up of young kids. And one of those kids also goes missing. So now the woman named Virginia and the sports coach start looking for their respective kids.
When Virginia sees the tow truck drive by she goes chasing after it. And indeed her daughter is in there. Then an ambulance appears and starts crashing into her, eventually driving her off the road, where she crashes into a tree and dies.
The body is quickly dragged into a morgue, washed, and buried. Not long after, Virgina wakes up and is helped out by the stranger from earlier. He tells her that she's dead and that her daughter will die unless she finds a white coffin, and that she has 24 hours. So off she goes to find a while coffin. She has run-ins with some creepy locals, and the coach, and another crazy woman. All three are looking for the white coffin to save their kids. Things get eventually deadly and a bit gory as it turns into a competition because there is only one white coffin and three kids to save. And there's a twist that involves the motivation behind all these strange events and then at the end there's also a scene that expands things a bit more.
White Coffin is an interesting movie that does offers something different. It relies a bit too much on confusion, because for most of the movie, even the past the end, the audience will be puzzled. Technically, the movie is very good. There are some poor choices all around though, as with the casting of Virginia, and the long intro credit scene with some ridiculous out-of-place music. Virginia should have been made to be much more sympathetic at first, but for some reason they didn't really try. This movie is rather short and this is one rare case where a couple minutes more would have helped. The concept is pretty good, but unfortunately they chose to turn it into some horror drama, when it could have easily been horror action or a horror thriller. Given what goes on, things are too low-key. White Coffin is worth a look but also worth a remake, something along the lines of an extreme French horror movie.
