Sam Was Here
Directed by Christophe Deroo
Sam’s having a bad trip home. There’s nobody at any rest stops, and his wife won’t take his calls. When his car breaks down, Sam steps out and sees a strange red light in the sky. Things quickly go from bad to worse when masked maniacs soon start hunting him, insisting that he’s a killer who’s been menacing locals. As Sam struggles to repel his attackers, he must unravel the mystery of what’s happening to him before it’s too late. Like an episode of “Black Mirror” if it was directed by the spawn of David Lynch and Rob Zombie, SAM WAS HERE traps viewers inside a gruesome waking nightmare from which there is no escape. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE
A traveler is hunted by locals after his car breaks down in a mysterious area.
Cast: Rusty Joiner, Sigrid La Chapelle, Rhoda Pell
I liked it - very David Lynch. Reminded me of stories where something awful happens without explanation - it just *is*.
It's not deep, it's nonsensical
Wow! Very impressed! The description on here is very accurate, very David Lynch and Rob Zombie with a Tarantino/Craven twist. It’s like silent hill meets eraserhead and the hills have eyes.
I’ve watched this at least three times and they’re all as enjoyable as the first. It seems a lot of people don’t understand what’s going on. Spoiler: my take is that Sam is a child molester and murderer and he’s creating his own fake reality to deal with the gravity of the horror he’s created. He thinks he’s innocent and everyone is out to get him; they are but it’s because he’s done horrible things...his mind just won’t allow him to accept it.
