After another car has crashed into hers, bounty hunter McKenzie (Sarah Villegas) has lost her bounty, murderer Noah (Nicholas Wilder), who has taken off into the endless forests that cover the area. Of course she has immediately taken up pursuit - until she's suddenly slowed down rather unexpectedly by the driver of the other car, Abigal (Colleen Slattery), who has followed her to take down insurance details ... and now sees herself forced to stick with McKenzie as she has lost her way and would never find back to the street, plus there's a killer out there and heavily armed McKenzie really seems to be her best chance to survive. McKenzie soon notices that Abigail isn't only slowing her down though, her constant chattering is also driving her up the wall, especially since the two women seem to have nothing in common, McKenzie is the tough-as-nails bounty hunter who's constantly putting her life up the line while Abigail turns out to be a woman born into money moaning about nothing but first world problems. So when Abigail at one point offers to fetch water from a nearby creek on her own, McKenzie is more than relieved.

On her way to the creek, Abigail runs into ... Noah - and it turns out that she's his accomplice and has crashed McKenzie's car to spring him free - not a good plan but a plan. And now the two plan to overcome McKenzie and make her their captive - since neither of them seems to know how to get out of the woods again, and McKenzie seems to have some idea there. On their way, they pass by a shack that's obviously inhabited, so Noah decides to pop in to kill the owner and steal some food, then he orders Abigail, a professional crime scene cleaner, to clean up his mess, to spend some quality time with McKenzie, that mostly consists of him gloating - but McKenzie isn't one to give up easily, so from here things fall apart for everyone ...

 

A nice piece of genre entertainment that really gets the most out of just three people in the woods - and in many a way this is actors' cinema, since all involved give believable and grounded performances, while the rather magnificent scenery doesn't hurt one bit either. But at the core of it, Nemesis is really awesome suspense filmmaking, relying much more on anticipation than on spectacle and jump scares while keeping the situation tense as can be during all of its running time. And a nicely structured scripts with a few surprises along the way sure helps making this one really tight thriller.
