There are no deadlines that never come due, no debts ever paid.
Relentless and unstoppable, a psycho cab driver pursues a pair of fare-dodging friends across night-time Paris in the stylishly shot horror thriller Night Fare.
A silent, tattooed hulk, the driver (Jess Liaudin) is as implacable as the truck in Steven Spielberg’s Duel and almost as effective as a source of dread. However, it seems his prey – uptight Englishman Chris (Jonathan Howard) and cocky Frenchman Luc (Jonathan Demurger) – have their own guilty secrets. Which complicates our sympathies as the film unfolds.
Things take a surprising, motive-revealing turn 10 minutes from the end that may lose some viewers but offer others food for thought.
