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
the point is the possibilities are open as to why right and wtf was going on like they leave it up to the imagination but still would have been nice to find out wtf was going on
We don’t get to know and that’s the point. It’s about surveillance/voyeurism, civil justice, and mob vigilantism. Was Sam evil? Who knows. Not us. Did he deserve it? We can’t know now. He sure didn’t think so and he never got a chance to explain. That’s the point.
Don’t waste your time. Zero ending explanation. Good production and acting but no answers and very odd story. Wish I could get my time back
I have absolutely no idea what that was all about. Absolutely clueless. I just felt bad for the guy all the way through. But very enthralling and very good acting, would be an awesome film if it had an ending everyone could understand.
No idea what it all meant but an engaging film nonetheless. Rusty Joiner is terrific. Unsettling stuff.
