The Price

The Price

When young, attractive, Erin Wheeler finds herself lost at a seedy roadside diner on the way to meet her business partner and an important new client, her troubles are only beginning. Looking for directions, but finding only the lecherous advances of a degenerate trucker and the unnerving stare of a sociopathic state trooper, Erin drives off alone into the fog. Pursued by the ethereal forms of ghostly creatures reaching out for her at every turn, Erin soon finds herself alone on the dark highway after being involved in a brutal car crash. Wracked with guilt over causing the apparent deaths of a woman and infant in the crash, Erin reluctantly accepts help from the mysterious trucker and begins to fear for both her life and her sanity as the world around her begins to unravel. A bizarre second encounter at the diner – now the location of an apparent rip in the fabric of time itself – brings Erin to the stark realization that the strange truck driver may be much more than he appears, and that in this world at the crossroads between life and death, she just might be more predator than prey.
