Our Score
From contributors to the V/H/S anthology franchise, five gritty tales of terror form an American Gothic "circle of death" in this above average chiller compendium set around a remote stretch of desert highway. Weary travellers confront their worst nightmares and murkiest inner demons as the Tales from the Crypt-type vignettes take in two men on the run from a supernatural creature, an all-girl band seeking refuge with a strange family after their tour van breaks down, a bloody home invasion and a rescue mission going horribly wrong. The best of the stylistically unified bunch, sporting a nice line in atmospheric dread and nasty twists, sees a tired driver ploughing into a hapless victim and then, after taking her to an abandoned emergency room, being guided through surgery procedures by creepy 911 voices. It's a solid shocker throughout, with horror icon Larry Fessenden as our radio DJ guide to the menacing morality lessons.

Summary

Anthology of five twisted tales following five groups of people who encounter terrifying situations on the open road. Two fugitives turn up at a diner covered in blood, a rock band seeks help when their bus breaks down, a desperate businessman makes an unusual emergency call, a gunman searches for a girl, and a family holiday is hijacked by two masked men. Horror anthology, starring Chad Villella and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin.
