Amber (Courtney Hope) lives in a small midwestern town. She has plans to head to Chicago to live, but has to get there immediately in order to put down the deposit on her apartment or it will be given to someone else. The problem is, she has no way to get there. It seems everyone with a car is busy. After finally getting a ride with a couple friends, the car breaks down, and the hitch a ride on a passing semi. But the drive won’t let them get off, and they’re carrying a cargo of blood and trapped in the back. When they arrive in an abandoned slaughter house, all hell breaks loose, and the creatures that have them captive are going to take them apart one by one.

This is one of the newest in the HorrorFest (8 Films to Die For) series, and another pretty decent one. These guys have gotten pretty clever in finding directors willing to cut their teeth on low budget horror films. This one has some twists and turns, and some you wouldn’t even know about unless you listen to the commentary by the writer and actors. This is a bizarre story that isn’t what you are expecting. We know something isn’t exactly right with Amber, but we have no idea what’s really going on. This is one of those thriller horror films that keeps us wondering just what is out there. Amber is a strong woman though, and if anyone can survive this horror she can. But she up against unbelievable odds.

Lots of suspense, frightening jumps and scares, and it’s fairly gory, although not all blood and guts. Actually it’s a well thought out story, and half way decent in this category. Some of the HorrorFest films in previous years were clunkers, but this year they have been really good. (See review of Husk a few days ago). I think this is a pretty good low budget horror film and well worth the effort to track it down.
