Hush (2009)

Hush is a competent and interesting UK thriller, consistently exciting and quite challenging in the way it jiggles the clichés it trots out, though just a little lacking in terms of plot (a few loose ends) and performance.

A couple are bickering over their stalled relationship on the M1. A lorry overtakes — a little wildly — and the rear shutter briefly opens revealing a naked, screaming female. Is it enough to call the police and drive on? The couple duly bicker about this too, but soon enough it's moot...and yet replaced by a new conundrum: would you risk your life to save a novia who's betrayed you with a man who wears his mobile phone on his belt?

Grade: B(+)

Here's the trailer...
