In a post-apocalyptic world a woman (Brittany Ashworth) crashes her truck, breaks her leg and must survive the night as a creature menacingly lurks outside.

Okay, whether you like this movie or not will probably depend upon how much you are interested in the many flashbacks that reveal the heroine’s relationship with her lover in pre-apocalypse times.

I actually found the flashbacks concerning the burgeoning romance interesting, though they do take up a great deal of the running time (SPOILER) …and the romance does relate to the plot twist at the end.

The non-flashback section of the film is handled like a contained horror-thriller, with the protagonist stuck in her overturned vehicle for the duration of the movie.

Creature-wise, I liked the look of the beings that populate the wasteland: hairless, scrawny humanoids with deformed heads.
