I love a good thriller that pushes the limits and surprises you. Fox Hunt Drive is that film. Check out why I think you should give this one a chance!
This film was directed by Drew Walkup and written by Adam Armstrong and Marcus DeVivo. It stars Lizzie Zerebko and Michael Olavson.
Synopsis for Fox Hunt Drive
Alison, a down-on-her-luck young professional, spends her evenings trying to make ends meet as a ride-share driver. While wrapping up her shift, she decides to take on one last passenger – only to find herself in unexpected danger when she discovers the mysterious stranger is not who he appears to be.
This is a film that takes its time building the story. Allison is down on her luck and we can relate to her pain. Her struggle of wanting a job in her field and no one giving her a chance, which causes her to lower her standards and get a job as a ride-share driver. Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, a shady character joins her ride and things take a turn for the worse. However, this is when we learn there is far more to both of these characters than meets the eye. I love how twisted and unexpected this film is.
Both Lizzie Zerebko and Michael Olavson both deliver phenomenal performances and play well off each other’s emotions throughout the film. It’s almost like a game of cat and mouse, but only one of them knows they’re playing. Lizzie especially blew me away with her character and the wild transformation we see her go through from beginning to end.
Fox Hunt Drive recently screened at the 2020 Virtual Cinequest Film Festival. It’s one hell of a sadistically twisted ride and I highly recommend it.
