Maniff 2019: ‘Rust Creek’ Review

Stars: Hermione Corfield, Jay Paulson, Micah Hauptman, Daniel R. Hill, Sean O’Bryan, Jeremy Glazer | Written by Julie Lipson, Stu Pollard | Directed by Jen McGowan

Rising British star Hermione Corfield takes the lead in Rust Creek, an engaging low budget survival thriller that starts out like a Wrong Turn knock-off but becomes something more substantial instead.

Directed by Jen McGowan, Rust Creek centres on Kentucky college student Sawyer Scott (Corfield), who impulsively decides to skip Thanksgiving with her family and drive to Washington D.C. for a job interview. However, her Gps strands her in the frozen backwoods, where she has an encounter with scuzzy meth-dealers Hollister (Micah Hauptman) and Buck (Daniel R. Hill) that leaves her injured and fleeing for her life.

After collapsing, Sawyer is rescued by meth cook Lowell (Jay Paulson) and hides out in his trailer, though she’s not entirely sure she can trust him.
