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 ...
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
Really cool, actually!
