All Kirby (Whitney Moore) wanted to do was to pay her boyfriend Vincent (Shane Dean), who lives in the city, a visit for some you-know-what, when her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. She calls her car's customer service via an in-built direct line and the person on the other end, Max (Kevin Tye), promises to send a tow truck. The next day, the tow truck hasn't arrived, and Max, who promises he has requested one back when, grows uncharacteristically worried - and soon Kirby knows why, when she's attacked by a zombie, whom she kills, only to attract more, then be saved by a gang of zombie hunters, who seem to be fine with feeding on the zombies (!) and who try to rape Kirby. But Kirby's a girl who can hold her own, and thus manages to come out of the situation unscathed, while her attackers ... not so much. But she has a problem, it's 50 miles to the next city, her car has broken down, her only contact to the rest of the world is Max after her cellphone has broken down, and she needs abode at night to be safe from the zombies - so she pushes the car with her. On her way, Kirby meets all kinds of eccentrics, many a zombie, learns her boyfriend's cheating on her and has been turned into a zombie (!) - but she pushes on, never knowing what to expect or if what she has chosen to do is actually improving or worsening her situation ...

 

Zombie movies these days are really a dime a dozen, and not too many offer much on the originality sector - and in view of this, Breakdown Lane definitely blows some new air into the genre, combining zombie and road movie mainstays, some very dark irony and badass action. All of this is held together by a very brisk directorial effort and a very fine lead performance by Whitney Moore, upon whose shoulders it is to carry the film.

Really cool, actually!
