Then she offers a ride to him and when she is driving, he says pornography to her. She asks him to leave but he shows a knife and tells her to go to a derelict motel. Mallory sees that the psychopath Christian is not wearing the seat bell and decides to throw the truck off the road in a curve. But the leg of Mallory is trapped in the overturned car and Christian leaves her without any help, in the beginning of Mallory's worst nightmare.

Hi, sister.

Where are you?

Taking the scenic route.

The long way, you mean.

I'm following my GPS.

It's fine.

It's beautiful, actually.

This isn't what

I think it is, is it?


As long as you're all right.

Why wouldn't I be?

What do you think?

Please tell me

that's not for the wedding.

Brad's mom will have

an aneurysm.

It's for tonight.

Do you think it's too slutty

for a second date?

Depends on whether or not

you've already slept with him.

Promise me that whatever

you do buy for the wedding,

there'll be

a little bit more of it.

Hey, did you book

your flights yet?


It's two weeks away.

I know!

I was just waiting for you to be sure.

Sure about what?

{just want you

to be happy, okay?

I am happy.

I am.

All right. ('H book

a refundable ticket.


I'm kidding. I'm kidding.

Look at it this way.

Two weeks from now,

this will all be over,

and all you'll have

to worry about

is whether four weeks in Europe

is really enough time

to see everything.

When will you get in?

About same time tomorrow,

if I go straight through.

Love you. Bye.


Hey, it's me.

I guess you're stiff on the road.

{just wanted to check in,

see how you are.

Look, honey, I really appreciate

you going along with this,

just like you always do.

I mean, believe me,

I'm as bummed as you are

that! gotta cancel

our honeymoon,

but a huge deal's

come up at work and...


take care of my car for me and I

will make it up to you, I promise.

We'll go somewhere better,

like Hawaii or somewhere in a few months.

But right now Fm just

thinking of our wedding,

and Pm waiting

for you here in Denver.

I know this keeps...





F*ck you, Brad.



F*ck. Shit.



Having some trouble?

No. I'm fine.

No. I meant with your truck.



Yeah, it just

kind of died on me.

That's inconvenient.

Want some help?

I tried calling AAA,

but there's no service.

Well I... I'd offer to

let you borrow my phone,

but I don't have one.

Really? Um, okay.

Well, why don't I take a look,

see what we're dealing with?

Long way from home.

Where you heading?


When was the last time

you had her serviced?

It's not my car.

No? You steal it?

That depends.

Are you a cop?


Well. It doesn't seem

to be an oil problem.

No, I, checked the oil.

The belt is tight,

and I, saw the connection

on the battery is good, too, so.

Not making it easy for me

to save the day here.

Sorry about that.

Have you been

walking a long way?

I mean, do you live out here?

No, I used to come

out here with my dad,

and now I just come out

when I can and go hiking.


I still have one more move.

Something my dad

taught me, actually.

Do you mind

if I check the trunk?

It's right here.

Turn the ignition like

you're turning it on.

Yeah, it's on.


My gosh.


I am very impressed.

I don't know what I would

have done without you, so...

No, don't mention it. Here.

Can I... I mean,

can I give you money or...

No, listen.

Your thanks is thanks enough, honestly.

And from the looks of it,

you're gonna need it a lot more than I do

with a wedding

and a honeymoon to pay for.


Well, um...

It was nice meeting you.

I'm Christian.



That's a very pretty name.


Thank you.

Yeah, you got it.

Drive safe.

I would offer you a ride, but...

No, it's totally fine.

I got everything

I need right here.

Anyway, I get it.

Thank you.

You sure about this?

I can only take you

as far as the highway,

but, yeah.


I'd have felt guilty
