When a foursome "borrows" a car for one night of fun, what starts as a wild joy ride turns into a nightmare. After a violent crash "Accident," they discover that being stuck at the bottom of a ravine in an overturned car is the least of their problems. The psychotic owner of the car that they stole has them in his crosshairs and will stop at nothing to get both the car and its contents back. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the trailer and upfront previews.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally with Panavision cameras and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The production is unusually creative with cinematography and direction that creates extremely intense visuals. Color fidelity is excellent, with natural hues throughout in both sunny daylight and dark rainy night scenes. Fleshtones are perfectly natural as well. Contrast is well balanced and the darker scenes effectively lit with good black levels and revealing shadow delineation. Resolution is superb and exhibits fine detail in facial features, beard stubble, hair, clothing including rain-drenched clothes, object textures including earth topography, and other textures. The imagery is creatively crafted and exhibits extreme reality that delivers intense thrills. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is terrific with superb panned sound effects within the soundstage and from the surrounds. Surround energy is present throughout, especially during the crash sequence and the pouring rain, with electrical flashes and various other effects such as automatic gun fire, rock slides, a helicopter airborne and crashing, fiery explosions and water disturbance. Foley sound effects are nicely crafted and precise. The synth music score really stirs the intensities. The music occupies a wide, directionalized presence with good surround extension. Deep bass is solid and deep and provides excellent support, at times extending to sub-25 Hz frequencies. Dialogue is intelligible throughout with good spatial integration. This is a well-crafted soundtrack with a holosonic® presence. (Gary Reber)
