The danger is sitting next to you.

David Duchovny portrays an aspiring true-crime writer obsessed with serial killers, who convinces his photographer girlfriend (Michelle Forbes) to take a cross-country tour of famous murder sites.

Picking up two new, highly-suspect, passengers, they encounter a version of Brad Pitt who should set off every alarm in sight. I mean, come on!

Anyway, things get dark fast as stark reality intrudes on fantasy, forcing the city slickers to realize that yes, the country folk do probably want to kill you.

A launching pad for a lot of careers, it remains thoroughly chilling.
