review by
Mike Haberfelner

All Tamara (Jaclyn Betham) wanted to do is to catch up with her girlfriends Maddy (Scout Taylor-Compton) and Brooke (Landry Allbright) for a "relaxing" weekend at the lake - with a bit of booze and partying on the side. But then her car breaks down, and while she's soon helped by "Samaritans" Merv (Lane Toran) and Kib (Noah Lowdermilk), the two of them show less than honourable intentions.

That night, Tamara has caught up with her friends, and the three of them party like crazy at a local dive, so crazy that Tamara fails to notice that someone has slipped something into her drink - and eventually she passes out and later that night wakes up tied up in a shed, with her captors being Merv and Kib and their Pa (Lane Caudell), all of whom turn out to be religious nutters with the intention to rape/impregnate and kill her to her give birth to a new angel in heaven. Tamara is scared shitless, as one would, but she keeps it together inasmuch that she puts a good scare into them by cursing them pretending she's an emmissary of Satan. Of course, an empty curse shows only limited effect even on the gullible, but then weird and definitely less than holy things start to happen in and around the shed Tamara's kept at ...

 

At first, Getaway comes across as your typical backwoods thriller, really ticking all the boxes and actually doing a good job doing just that, but at the same time not exactly spelling originality - to then really turn things around in the third act when the story (and the formula as such) is turned onto its head and really pulling no stops in the process. The result is a really tight horror flick that manages to not only scare but also surprise one several times down the road, and furthermore keeps one on the edge of one's seat throughout, all of which is making this a pretty cool genre flick!
