Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travelers who confront their worst nightmares – and darkest secrets – over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway. (NR – 89 minutes)
“Southbound” is an eerie ride that is certain to stick with you long after you have left the movie theater. The new horror anthology features five fables, each equally unique and unnerving in their own way. The best of the bunch – a story about an accident – is worth the price of admission in and of itself, making for a psychologically unsettling and visually revolting experience. Each vignette is tied – some directly and others loosely – to the next thereby creating a creepy collection that requires a strong seat belt. This is indeed one deeply disturbing drive.
