An ordinary woman must summon extraordinary courage to survive a nightmare odyssey in this harrowing survival thriller. Sawyer (Hermione Corfield) is an ambitious, overachieving college senior with a seemingly bright future. While on her way to a job interview, a wrong turn leaves her stranded deep in the frozen Kentucky woods. Suddenly, the young woman with everything to live for finds herself facing her own mortality as she's punished by the elements and pursued by a band of ruthless outlaws. With nowhere left to run, she is forced into an uneasy alliance with Lowell (Jay Paulson), an enigmatic loner with shadowy intentions. Though she's not sure she can trust him, Sawyer must take a chance if she hopes to escape Rust Creek alive.

    LOVED this thrilling, female driven indie! Hats off to the director for keeping the performances up in what seemed to be very "chilling" circumstances. Hermione Corfield keeps us on the edge of our seats and the supporting cast adds so many layers. Do yourself a favor and check out Rust Creek!

  • Surprisingly Enjoyable

    By laylay_s
    Not much of a thriller fan and the ominous floating head poster didn’t help either, so I was so surprised when I ended up really enjoying this! Wow. I’m always here for character-driven stories, and this was definitely one of those, but the score and cinematography brought it up to a next level!! Loved it!
  • An unexpected take on a thriller

    This female-led thriller is captivating, but it goes deeper to show a soulful take on humanity and relationships.

    What an awesome thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat! Loved all of it, and very appreciative of a powerful, well-produced, well-acted movie that didn’t cave to the typical “norms” in today’s movie culture of excessive language, gratuitous sex scenes, and politicization.

  • Not your average thriller

    Beautifully shot, very well-written, and wonderfully acted. Hermione Corfield is a new name for me but I suspect this film could do for her what Winter’s Bone did for Jennifer Lawrence. Very strong performance and a very clever story. I stumbled onto this little gem while searching with my daughter for strong female leads and we loved it.
  • Intense and poignant

    Warning: this film has no gimmicks. No superpowers, no magic, no MacGuffins. The thrill of this movie is watching an ordinary person desperately try to escape from an all-too-believable menace. When a college student gets stranded in the woods, she must fight for survival against the elements, not to mention a pair of good ol’ boys who have a dark secret to protect. The main character is not a hyper-capable “strong woman” type. She is not a type at all. Rather, she is an authentic, fully rendered person who just so happens to find herself in life-threatening danger. This isn’t a far-off adventure that she went looking for; it’s an adventure that could happen to any one of us if we were sufficiently unlucky. The film’s realistic setting and visceral stakes make it all the more impactful.
  • Solid

    Very good movie it's not a horror movie (I actually hate that horror movies are now often called "thriller") but tense, with some good twists, engaging pace, and great acting.
  • Starts decent, degrades quickly thereafter

    Poorly executed story that wasn’t that original in the first place. Lots of silly, unrealistic mistakes, including teeth that are way too straight and white! Laughable turn of relationship between protagonist and cook. I consider it a waste of my $ for the price of 6.99.
