SynopsisPenny, (Rachel Miner: "The Black Dahlia", "Bully", "The Memory Thief"), a young woman traumatized by a childhood auto accident that killed her parents, accompanies her therapist, (Mimi Rogers: "Austin Powers", "Someone To Watch Over Me"), on a road trip back to the scene of the accident as part of her therapy to overcome her fear of cars. But, when the two women accidentally cross paths with a dark and mysterious Hitch Hiker on a lonely stretch of mountain highway an attempt at healing suddenly takes a terrifying detour into a horrorific life and death struggle with a ruthless, deranged killer bent on preying upon Penny’s worst fears.
When Penny was a little girl she lost both parents in a terrible car accident, pinned in the mass of twisted steel, her mother bled out next to her, as her father’s lifeless body lay cold on the blacktop. It’s easy to see why Penny Dearborn (BULLY’s Rachel Miner) doesn’t like cars. In fact, she hates them. Penny lives in total fear of stepping inside and strapping on a seat belt. Still, she’s in a car, traveling toward Big Bear in the mountains of Southern California to face her fears. Behind the wheel is her psychologist Orianna Volker (Mimi Rogers). This whole trip is Orianna’s bright idea. But as night falls and Penny begins to panic, Orianna’s distraction causes her to clip the side of a passing hitchhiker—knocking the traveler to the wet pavement.

Now, she and Penny will find out what fear really is, as their deranged passenger traps the pair in the middle of nowhere with no prospects for escape from what will be the most terrifying journey of their lives. …Read More
