Southbound (2015)

Plot: 5 interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of travelers on a desert highway.

The first story, written by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and directed by Radio Silence, is about two guys who are chased by some sort of spirits. Well, the road starts to loop taking them back to the same place over and over again like some sort of hell.

The second story, written by Roxanne Benjamin and Susan Burke and directed by Benjamin alone, is about three girls who get stranded on the side of the road. Rather than take a right from “a bunch or rapey dudes” they decide to take a ride from a “nice couple”. Turns out to be the wrong decision in many ways.

The third story, written and directed by David Bruckner, is about a man named Lucas who becomes entangled in the lives of one of the girls from the previous story. He winds up taking her to the hospital and ends up stuck there.

The fourth story, written by Dallas Hallam and Patrick Horvath and directed by Horvath alone, is about a man who ends up in a rather creepy bar looking for his rather creepy sister. It doesn’t end well for him.

The final story, written once again by Bettinelli-Olpin and directed by Radio Silence, is about three men who invade a family’s home. But the daughter is incredibly strong and the father just keeps saying that he’s so sorry for something.

In the end, DJ found it all rather interesting. I was a little indifferent. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. The acting was good though, and we suggest you give it a shot.

My score: 48. DJ’s score: 58.
