Curve [Movie Review]

Curve [Movie Review] | I came to know about the movie after I viewed Jejakakaula's IGS, reviewing the movie.

So, here goes another movie recommendation.

At times, listen to your heart, there's nothing else you can do.

Mallory is driving alone to Denver to attend her wedding rehearsal. While enjoying the scenic view along the way, it seems that her heart is still not set about the marriage. Her sister, Ella knows her well that she hasn't bought her flight ticket yet, just in case she changes her mother. 

Stating her strong will, Mallory tells Ella that she is happy with her decision and will stick to marry Brad, the future husband. 

Rather than driving along the highway, she chooses to take a longer route, just to calm her nerves. Not long after, her car dies on her. And as any other horror movies go, there was no service in that area. 

A man comes up to her aid and assists her to get her car starts again. Out of courtesy and against her better judgement, she offers Christian a ride to the next town. 

What started as small talk turns weird when Christian tells her his sexual fantasy and what he would do to her. When she stops the car to let him off, he pulls a knife and asks Mallory to keep on driving to the next empty motel, where he will do things to her. 

Noticing that he is not wearing his seat belt, Mallory plunges the car down the cliff at a curve. 

When she wakes up, she realises that her leg is pinned in the seat. Whereas Christian seems to be unfazed and unhurt, gets up and walks away, leaving her in the upside-down car.

Alone and cold, Mallory manages to brave the night, Christian visits her the next day and mocks her by eating and drinking in front of her, before leaving her again. 

That night Mallory kills and eats a rat and drinks her own urine to survive. 

The next day, Christian visits her again and tells her that he is holding a family hostage in a cabin not far from the crash scene. He then leaves her with a saw, stating that she needs to do what it takes to survive. 

That night, heavy rain pours. Christian visits again and this time around Mallory manages to get him close enough to her. She lashes out at him with a knife and throws away his car key. 

A police car pulls up nearby and when he sees Christian by the roadside, he offers him a ride. Just as they were leaving, he thought he heard Mallory's cry for help but dismisses it as nothing. 

Will Mallory survive the ordeal?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 3.6/5.0 Well, it is not the most original plot as I could see many references throughout the movie. But it was quite a good watch that made me stayed until the very end of the movie. 

A point to ponder 'Will you stop your car for the next hitch-hiker ever again?'

Cast: 4.3/ 5.0 They delivered their parts very well - the emotions, the craziness was great. 

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again, but not in the very near future. 

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
