Chris (Christopher Lee Gibson) was just about to drift through another one-horse town when two things attract his attention, one's Layla (Amanda Powell), the lovely waitress of the local diner who's more than a bit interested in him, the other's the local sheriff, who turns out to be Steven (Bruce Jarman), a guy he has bullied as a child. Now Steven is ready to bury the hatchet and become friends even if he doesn't trust Steven further than he can throw him, but since Steven seems to be interested in Layla as well, this is becoming a game of alpha dog for Chris ... and he seems to win it, too.

But not everything's alright with Chris, with the untimely death of his mother his life has fallen apart, and since then he has drifted from town to town pretending to be what he's not - like a policeman even - and getting by by ways of stealing and killing even. Eventually of course, even a smalltown cop like Steven is bound to find out just that - but will it be too late for Layla (as well as several others) already?

 

The Drifter is quite a chilling little thriller, as it focuses almost completely on Chris and makes the audience sympathize with him - which makes his increasingly violent deeds all the more shocking of course. But Christopher Lee Gibson really does a great job bringing his character to life and making him relateable, plus script and direction give him enough room to breathe without ever forgetting to create tension and suspense aplenty.

Really cool and effective genre entertainment, actually!
