Beyond the obvious gut-wrenching events of the film, the ambiguous story will make you wonder, “What would I do in a similar situation?” Throughout the film the audience will struggle to take a side; it is hard to decide who to sympathize with, Emser of Mary. The dichotomy is that they are both victims but are also both willing to become killers. While some say that Hit and Run bears too strong a similarity to Stuart Gordon’s Stuck, the two are actually very different if you look beyond the surface level. When Mary (Laura Breckingridge) goes out with some of her girl friends over Spring Break, it seems that they are going to have a fun night. Mary never expects that while driving home after having a few drinks she would encounter a situation that would turn her world upside down and running for her life. On her drive home, Mary swerves to avoid something in the road and narrowly avoids crashing her Jeep into a tree. She is a bit shaken, but seems okay otherwise, so its no surprise that she goes home and goes to sleep. However, she is not allowed to rest for long as she is awakened early in the morning by a strange noise coming from her garage. When she investigates she finds that the source is a man (Kevin Corrigan), who is horribly mangled and hanging from the front bumper of her Jeep. His presence comes as a bit of a shock for both Mary and the audience and marks the beginning of the wild ride that is Hit and Run. Appalled and irrational, viewers watch Mary’s internal struggle as she decides what to do to correct these horrible circumstances. Initially, she seems to want to help the man, but makes no move to call 911. However, she is scared when the man makes a grab for her. Terrified of the possible consequences, Mary decides that she must put this all behind her. Taking a golf club, she “accidentally” finishes the job her Jeep started. Sneaking out, she takes the body into the woods to bury it. This is the first of many gut wrenching scenes where audiences are not only visually horrified, but are on emotional overload as well. Watching Mary’s agony as she buries the body adds another dimension or horror to the film. Still in shock, Mary confesses everything to her boyfriend, Rick (Christopher Shand), who gives her less than sound advice; keep everything inside, pretend nothing is wrong and it will go away. At this point, even the most out of touch viewer knows that this is probably the worst recommendation possible, but Mary heeds her boyfriend’s advice and tries to move on. However, she finds the trauma and guilt more difficult to deal with than she thought. She begins seeing little signs around her house that imply that someone knows what happened and it trying to mess with her. The film twists in another unexpected direction as Mary discovers that her intuition is right. While it is no surprise that the man she hit starts coming after her seeking revenge, there are a number of sudden turns in the plot that will keep a horror movie fan on their toes till the very end. In the bloody game of kill or be killed that develops, the tides change so quickly, that there is no way to predict the ending. Hit and Run boasts some interesting style and editorial choices, which contribute to the overall feeling of uncertainty and uneasiness experienced by the viewer. This is a welcome change from the general quality of direct to DVD films. Overall, definitely worth watching.

Certainly not the worst, but far from being remotely good… although I must admit, Kevin Corrigan was scary as hell once the car messed him up. Posted By Slasher_Guy on July 6, 2009 @ 3:50 pm Log in to Reply ★★☆☆☆ Disappointing. The script was pretty weak, the lead character was stupid and unlikeable (and I really like Laura Breckenridge), the killer just didn’t make any sense and it was slow, dull and boring. A crap version of ‘Stuck’. Posted By jugchord1 on August 11, 2009 @ 8:41 pm Log in to Reply ★★☆☆☆ This movie isn’t exactly the most clever or interesting movie ever. The lead girl was convincing but the rest of the actors performances seemed kind of forced, not incredibly bad but not great either. The way the victim reacted was cool though. Posted By MattSlash on August 17, 2009 @ 4:13 am Log in to Reply ★★★★☆ This was a combination of Stuck, I Know What You Did Last Summer and was heavily cliched but it was thrilling and one hell of a crazy,bloody ride from start to finish. I thought the filming was surprisingly slick and efficient and the acting was pretty decent for a direct to dvd horror/thriller. Most of it was pretty unrealistic on how it all played out and was sometimes over the top but you got to love their effort. There are also a couple of good scares and a creepy atmosphere throughout that was the perfect match for this movie. Overall a well done horror/thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat for 90 minutes even though the idea isn’t so original. Recommended!

What happens is a semi drunk girl hits a guy with her car unbeknownst to her on her way home from a bar and he winds up stuck to her bumper in her garage looking like he’s half dead blood gurgling from his mouth and just plain TORE UP.. She goes inside to call 911 but hangs up thinking she will get into trouble because she had been drinking so she goes back to the garage to tell him she is going to try and help him and he lunges for her clawing at her still attached to the front bumper. She panics and whacks him with a golf club. Next thing you see is her pulling him off his impalement on the bumper and buries him in a shallow grave.Next her boyfriend gets involved with not so nice consequences and lets just say that the man she hit has a history of mental problems and seems impossible to kill .. the 2 play cat and mouse for what makes quite a thrilling and in my opinion pretty scary little horror film .

The acting is quite mediocre (most notably Laura Breckenridge’s lame performance) and the characters are all completely unlikable; the plot is a complete question mark and the dialogue is mostly pretty stupid. At least, there are many intense and thrilling scenes, a few great scares and lots of cool gore. I especially dug the last half hour which is full of terrific scenes and images (death by forced gasoline drinking, a wonderful eye-stabbing scene, the main actress tied to the Jeep’s front bumper with a Xmas light chain…). The opening with that cool Modest Mouse song is nice and I also enjoyed the ending. Still, I definitely don’t recommend it.

Posted By crazyhorror on February 14, 2012 @ 12:44 pm Log in to Reply ★★★★☆ Hit and Run is one of the finest horror movies nowadays. This is actually in my opinion a great movie. It’s not bad but it’s good so far. I personally like this film when I watched it the other day at my room and to say this the movie itself is fine. The plot of this movie is really similar to Stuart Gordon’s Psychological thriller Stuck but it’s done in a really dark style. The great things about Hit and Run is that since the film has some similarities to Stuart Gordon’s Stuck this movie is full of suspenceful and scary scenes. All the scares in this film are seriously genuine and really good so far I did like the way the scares were used in the film and it really fits well to the movie so far plus the movie also has a really dark atmosphere that really fits well with the scares as well and it makes the movie look good so far. Plus the film also has a strong amount of gore and the movie is also filled with loads of heavy excess violence that will make you squirm in your seat I did like all of the kills in this movie so far. All the kills in this movie are seriously nasty and brutal at the same time we got Gasoline drinking death scene, we got the grass cutter through the back death scene I also like the battering of the head with a golf club scene plus we also have an incredible and amazing eye stabbing scene as well which makes this movie even better and I personally like when the main actress is tied to the front of the bumper while the dead guy drives the car while she’s tied in with Christmas lights and chains. Since the movie has a lot of impressive kills the other great things about Hit and Run is that the film has a couple of elements borrowed from Stuart Gordon’s Psychological thriller Stuck and this movie also has some Supernatural Elements mixed with dark elements as well. I also like the way the director handles the film as well since this is Enda McCallion’s first movie Enda McCallion gets to learn easily how to build suspense and tension towards the film since this is Enda’s first movie plus the performances of Laura Breckenridge and Kevin Corrigan are really nice they both did a good job with their performances in the movie so far. The main problem with Hit and Run is that the film moves on a really slow pace and this film has some minor pacing issues and there’s a lot of cliches as well and the characters are sometimes annoying in the movie while Laura Breckenridge and Kevin Corrigan did a good job with their performances the other actors and actresses have a decent performance in the movie as well. My other problem with the film is the writing the writers seriously had a lot of ideas until it falls short it makes you think that the writers are high on drugs, drunk while writing the movie or they just ran out of ideas from too much thinking about how the pacing of the movie will go until the climax of the film. I only wish that the writing would have been better so far and I would enjoy this movie when it has some incredible writing so far. Hit and Run is mainly a bump in your seat horror film with lots of genuine scares and spooks with loads of outrageous and intense gore and violence so mainly in the end the film is just a bump in your seat horror film so far although the movie still has some good moments so far. Overall Hit and Run gets a 7/10.
