Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Midnight Meat Train director Ryuhei Kitamura continues his American gothic adventure with this ingenious, ultra-stylish shocker that upturns genre conventions for an unexpectedly rousing experience. After screwing up a mansion heist, hillbilly robbers take out their frustration by mugging a couple in a car instead. Bad idea. Because the driver (charismatic Luke Evans) is a mass murderer with a kidnapped heiress in his clutches. From there on in, it's psychos vs psycho in a taut, tense cat-and-mouse chiller that sees each side attempting to outdo the other in terms of entrapment, torture and terror. Kitamura's skilfully told, pitch-black comic strip boasts some stunning carnage, creative deaths and full-bore gore - watch out for the "skin overcoat" disguise - while Derek Magyar is more than a match for Evans in the maniacal acting stakes. Genuinely striking and unnerving, the film manages to ramp up the fright factor to such overly intense levels that uneasy laughter provides the only release.
