Damien Power directs Havana Rose Liu, Dale Dickey and Dennis Haysbert in this mystery thriller where a recovering drug addict discovers a kidnapping in progress while stranded at a rest stop during a blizzard.
The Hateful Eight for Gen-Z. Someone’s got a red hot poker up these stranded strangers’ ass and only a hot junkie is gonna figure out whose name is on the handle. There’s no twist or turn that particularly surprises but it is slick and looks decent. I watched this with the sound down low late one night when the cat really really couldn’t sleep, let the whole world know and I wanted at least one person in the house to get a decent night’s kip. It fulfilled its brief as a 3 A.M. throwaway movie.
