Night Drive (Frightfest 2021) review

When a driver picks up a twenty-something girl he gets more than he bargained for, with a night of bloody chaos.

Even if you haven’t read the synopsis, you are kind of waiting for the sh*t to hit in the fan in Night Drive. Leads Sophie Dallah and A.J Bowen (You’re Next) have excellent on-screen chemistry and really play with the age disparity between the two which is played for some laughs.

As things get a bit crazier Night Drive does hint at a more fantastical turn which will have you interpreting the film in a very different way. This plot device does help when the film feels like it grinds to a halt.

Dallah is in her element when she is being quippy and taking no crap from anyone, and really steals the show.

While you may always think these stories never have happy endings, Night Drive goes for an alternative approach that will certainly garner some fans.

Night Drive screened as part of Arrow Video Frightfest 2021.
