review by
Mike Haberfelner

Monica (Aniela McGuiness) is on the home way from work at a 3rd rate law firm specialising on insurance claims when she receives a phonecall from a mystery caller (Mike Stanley) telling her she is to deliver a bunch of files she was to bring home that night to study to an address in the middle of nowhere within 73 minutes - a time her GPS tells her is just enough to get there -, otherwise the mystery man's hitman (Robert Hernandez) will kill her mother (Sheril Rodgers) and daughter (Izzy Herbert). This threat is reasonably believable, especially since the mystery man has also tapped Monica's phone and car computer, so as to know she won't call the police or anyone and stays on track. However, she manages to call her boyfriend Keith (Christopher Millan) over her tablet (and later a burner phone she picks up on the way), and together they find out more and more about the caller in the process - even if a side effect of this is that the whole thing ultimately wrecks Keith's marriage to Leslie (Megan Rosen). Thing is, the more they find out about the caller, the more dangerous things seem to become ...

 

This film was shot in the first pandemic year under strict lockdown conditions - but not so that you'd notice: While most films of this ilk are little more than blown up Zoom conversations, this film uses its restrictions to its advantage, making the isolation Monica finds herself into the film's engine for suspense while at the same time applying a rich cinematic language, which is especially remarkable since the film's mostly taking place inside a rather nondescript car. But a well-structured script heavy on suspense hand in hand with well-paced storytelling and a suitably direction as well as a very solid small cast make this pretty awesome thriller entertainment.
