  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Sitting in traffic in her freshly-washed BMW, Sarah (Nolden) is looking forward to a weekend mountain getaway with her boyfriend, when window-washing couple, Jenna (Isabelle) and Jackson (Turton) hijack her at knifepoint. Young, naive, and in deeply over their heads, they take Sarah to the cabin and hold her hostage until they can figure out what to do. But don't despair, our captive is more cunning than she appears, and she's not afraid to play for both teams.

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits Super 16-originated images that are quite clean and nicely defined. While the color palette is a bit subdued, hues are generally well balanced and satisfying. There is some minor pixelization, but edge halos are not a problem. Overall, the picture is satisfying and effective for the storytelling. (Suzanne Hodges)
