review by
Mike Haberfelner

After their father (Adam S. Ford) has disappeared and is presumed dead, estranged sisters Ana (Angie Sandoval) and Sandra (Yetlanezi Rodriguez) decide to go on a roadtrip together to finally make up again. But somewhere in the middle of nowhere, Texas, USA, their car runs out of gas after the owner (Kevin Kinkade) of the last gas station has pretty much chased them away, refusing to fill them up. They feel there's something or someone watching them, but they haven't much of a choice but to sleep in the car - to the next morning wake up at some sort of ritual site, with their car nowhere to be seen - and they don't know what freaks them out more, the pretty creepy site or the fact that someone has obviously brought them there, presumably for a reason. They try to make their way back to the car, but without the first idea where it might be, all they manage is to walk in circles, finding many unsettling fetishes that seem to be linked to some cult - and maybe to the weird religion their dad has become a follower late in life. Also every now and again, they start to hear voices whispering to them, but never see a soul - but they do find a corpse, that of the gas station owner who has chased them away. Despite all their going in circles, they finally find a house, and old dialpidated building, its walls plastered with missing persons posters - including posters of both Sandra and Ana ...


A very nice piece of horror that doesn't relie on gore and spectacle but rather goes for atmosphere - and the wonderful and slightly creepy forest (along with sparce but moody set decorations) of course helps with that, along with a script that intentionally takes a slowburn approach but knows how to keep up the suspense throughout nevertheless. And the two leads filling out their carefully fleshed out characters very well really carry that movie, giving their characters depth even beyond the script. And all of this makes just really good and quite inventive genre entertainment with a folk horror twang to it.
