Dead End

Synopsis: For the past 20 years, Frank Harrington has grudgingly driven his family to celebrate Christmas with his mother-in-law. This year, he takes a shortcut. It's the biggest mistake of his life: The nightmare begins. A mysterious woman in white wanders through the forest, leaving death in her wake. A terrifying black car - its driver invisible - carries the victims into the heart of the night. Every road sign points to a destination they never reach. The survivors succumb to panic, to madness; deeply buried secrets burst to the surface, and Christmas turns into a living hell.

quickest way back to the highway?

Are you all right?

Did you have

an accident or something?

Okay. Anybody got a cell phone?

-No signal.

-We just passed the cabin.

Maybe there's a phone. Richard, be

a gentleman and make room for her.

-Let Brad be the gentleman.

-What's your problem, man?

Relax, buddy.

Breath in slowly through your nose

and out deeply through your ass!

-It's all right, Mrs. Harrington.

-I'll walk.

-I could use the fresh air, anyway.

-You're not walking by yourself.

-I wanna be alone.


-Let me tell you something, smart guy.


Keep busting my balls and I'll

take you out of the game for good.

-Understand me?

-Yes, sir!

We'll meet you down there in

just a minute. Okay, honey?


All right.

Okay, we'll see you there, honey.


Would you like a nice

hot cup of coffee?

I think she's in shock. We should

have asked Marion what to do.

Honey, we don't need a shrink.

We'll call 91 1.


-They'll know how to handle it.

Damn! Fucking stinks in here.

It's the baby...


-Where are you going, sweetie?

-Away from you guys.


What's your name?

Where do you live?

-She's not gonna be much help.


Hello, Miss July.

Does anybody live here?

Maybe it's one of those old

forest ranger stations.

Jesus, Laura.

You scared the shit out of me.

Sorry. They have very interesting

wall hangings, these rangers.

So, what's his name?

Do it, baby.

You got a ring. You married?

Marion and I are getting married.


don't say anything but I'm proposing

to her tonight at her grandmother's.

Remember when you said you would

kill yourself if I ever left you?

I hope that was just

a figure of speech, 'cause...

Brad, we've had some

great times together, but...

I think we need to go on
