A recently widowed woman is abducted by a cold blooded killer, only to escape into the wilderness where she is forced to battle against the elements as her pursuer closes in.


Grimmfest says: The worst horrors are often random, unexpected, straight out of nowhere. Thus it is that an encounter between drivers on an open road, which initially seems like a simple incidence of bruised male ego road-rage against a female driver, quickly escalates into something far more disturbing and deadly; a brutal game of cat and mouse between a remorseless, misogynous psychopath and his latest chosen victim – who proves to be far smarter and more determined than he is expecting. There might be wry nods to both Spielbergs classic DUEL and George Sluizers bone-chilling THE VANISHING, but ALONE is very much its own movie, offering a sour and cynical fresh spin on the classic hunter vs hunted scenario, constantly shifting gears and changing situations, as the heroine finds the will, and the ferocity, to fight back. Beautifully played by Jules Willcox as the resourceful heroine and Marc Menchada (star of last year's Grimmfest favourite EVERY TIME I DIE) as her hateful tormentor, this is a breakneck and surprisingly brutal white-knuckle ride into the heart of human darkness. Fasten your seatbelts, folks. The road ahead could get... bloody.
