“A rivetingly nasty ride and an assured debut from a promising new director.”
– David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
“A white knuckle ride of ruthless horror. I was so shocked I literally fell off my seat.”
– Kristy Puchko, Pajiba
“A career-changer for star Daniel Gillies… here given the spotlight as an unflappable
but queasily human screen psycho.”
– Guy Lodge, Variety

A family’s idyllic outing at an isolated coastline descends into terror when high school teacher Alan ‘Hoaggie’ Hoaganraad, his wife Jill, and stepsons Maika and Jordon unexpectedly come across a pair of murderous drifters​ – ​the enigmatic psychopath Mandrake and his hulking man-child accomplice Tubs​ – who thrust them into a ​nightmare road trip. At first, the family’s terror seems to be born of a random encounter with two sociopaths​, b​ut as the night drags​​ on​,​ Hoaggie and Jill realize that this nightmare ​was set in motion 20 years earlier​.​
