Future Bullshit: While She Was Out (2008)

It's been awhile since we've had a solid Woman-in-Peril movie, y'know, the kind that Ashley Judd and Jodie Foster have specialised in over the last ten years. Well, here comes Kim Basinger to step into that noted genre absence where she plays a single mother who is hunted by the kid from Witness over the course of one bloody night. Why is she being hunted? The trailer explains the ridiculous reason behind all the mayhem...

I like the moment when Lukas Haas announces, "She's gonna die... execution-style!"What I also love is that she uses the men's "tools" against them with that tool-box she carries around, which means that director Susan Montford encountered some feminist film theory during her tenure as producer for films like Shoot 'Em Up.
