With the killer hot on the girl’s trail, Carter lets Bird inside, but moments later, the killer breaks in. With only a few shells for his shotgun, Carter has to use his wits to keep the killer at bay in order to save Bird’s life.

  • 3 stars "Good acting for sure but not as great ending, expected something bigger. For sure low budget."
  • 2 stars "Must not have cost much to make!"
  • 4 stars "This is a decent movie but don't expect any car chases. The plot is a bit on a simple side but actors do their parts pretty well."
