Plot – Spoilers:
The Harrington family are driving to Grandma’s for Christmas through a forest stretch cuz Dad thought avoiding the interstate would be a great idea to help him not doze off. In the car are Mom, daughter Marion, her boyfriend Brad and brother Richard.

The family are regular and dysfunctional with the brother-in-laws contemptuous of each other. With everyone in the car dozing, Dad joins them in nodding off until the screeching headlights of an oncoming car wake him. The car’s fine and nobody’s hurt so the bunch resume their journey until they see a woman with a baby standing by the road. Feeling obliged to help, they make room for her and decide to take her to the nearest police station as she seems in shock and is unresponsive to their questions. Soon, the horror begins…

Favorite Scenes:
Richard awkwardly rocking out until he is seduced by the Lady in White and has his lower lip chewed off. You almost miss his exit this early on into the movie.
