Miranda (Annabel Barrett) is just the typical girl who has just turned 21, she's just happy to can legally get drunk with her friends now, and dreams of getting out of her hometown in the middle of the desert anyday now.

Soren (Zach Steffey) is a serialkiller who has really gotten into this trade because a voice inside his head tells him so. But he wouldn't just kill anyone, his victims must mean something to him - which is why he has so far not killed anyone, quite the contrary he has let a few would-be victims go unharmed ... much to the dismay of the voice inside his head of course. But then Soren stumbles upon Miranda, and he knows she's the one, so he drugs her, drives her to his shed in the middle of the desert, tortures her for a few days, and then kills her - only moments after he has slit her throat she gets up again, and further attempts to kill her, which really should have killed any person, have no effect on her. Both Miranda and Soren freak out, he because he thinks he's going crazy, she because she has only just found out she's immortal. His natural reaction of course is to hightail it, but she figures with her being immortal she has some power over him, and thus forces her to drive her back home. On their drive, it takes Miranda some convincing that she, other than the voice inside his head, is not a figment of his imagination, but she also tries to kill herself again and again, just to assure to herself that she actually is immortal - and heck, even when she cuts off limbs, they just grow back. These experiences, plus run-ins with quite a few weirdos, from a guy (Esmond Fountain) who thinks he can't die as long as he wears a rabbit costume, to a hitchhiker (Dean Satriano) who has a stuffed fox for company to a girl (Irena Violette) who thinks she sees dead cats anywhere, create a closeness between Soren and Miranda, as both feel only the respective other understands them - but their journey comes to an end too soom when Soren drops Miranda off in front of her house, and doesn't give her his address or number. But back home, Miranda feels nobody understands her, not her parents (Kelton Jones, Vida Ghaffari) nor her best friends (Caitlin Herst, Olivia Blue), as anybody just tries to help her cope with a horrible situation she doesn't think she has had - so really running away, on foot through the desert, seems the best option. After all, what's the worst that can happen, after all she can't die?

 

Now this sure is an unusual movie, basically because it takes a very far-fetched premise - and then goes in many different directions with it, just not the one you'd expect. As a consequence, the film's part all-out horror (especially the beginning), part absurd drama, part surreal comedy, and part road movie. But as diverse as all of this sounds, the film actually has a very coherent feel to it, thanks to a surprisingly stringent script (especially given the concept) and a very assured directorial effort that chooses atmosphere over spectacle and never lets the action veer off too far into the comedic, the tragic or the simply gruesome. And the two leads are most certainly able to carry their loads as well, making this one really cool movie.
