Darkslide (2016)

Originally titled Road to Red, this surf/skate/horror hybrid is all about five best friends who set out on a road trip that quickly turns into an epic battle for survival.

It was co-written and directed by Tito de Costa. It’s his fist full-length movie.

In the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, a sheriff finds world skateboard champion Paul McGuiness’ abandoned car parked at a lake and his surfboard flaoting nearby. Some believe he killed himself or overdosed. His brother and manager Bruce sets out to learn the truth, along with four of Paul’s best friend. But now, whatever killed Paul is coming for them.

I’d compare this to The Descent, but there’s plenty of skating, too. It gets pretty claustrophobic at times, if that’s something that upsets you.

You can watch this on Amazon Prime.

DISCLAIMER: Wild Eye sent us this DVD. That has no impact on our review.
