Relentless and unstoppable, a psycho cab driver (Jess Llaudin) pursues a pair of fare-dodging friends (Jonathan Howard and Jonathan Demurger) across night-time Paris in this stylishly shot horror thriller.

A silent, tattooed hulk, the driver 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 Howard and cocky Frenchman Demurger – have their own guilty secrets, which complicates our sympathies as the film unfolds.

Things take a surprising turn 10 minutes from the end, which may lose some viewers but offer others food for thought.
