Movie Info

Re-Animator director Stuart Gordon takes the helm for this disturbing tale of a compassionate retirement-home caregiver whose life is turned upside down after a gruesome hit-and-run accident leaves a severely injured homeless man lodged helplessly in her shattered windshield. Despite her repeated promises to take her ailing victim to the hospital, the realization that the accident could destroy both her career and her future finds her uncharacteristically deciding to let the man die a slow death in her garage while conspiring with her boyfriend to dispose of the body. A fictionalized account of actual events, Stuck was co-scripted by director Gordon and frequent Tales from the Darkside contributor John Strysik. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Obviously not a true story. Brandi accidentally hit a man when she was driving home, the man became stuck in the windshield and she left him to die. There were various incidents where the situation might be uncovered but she avoided them. She became more aggressive in her attempts to keep this under control as the film goes on. The characters were all annoying, you can't really feel mad or sad for anyone, but I have to admit Mena Suvari was pretty good in this film. If you want some brainless fun, maybe this film is for you.

    'Stuck' was a nice surprise. There's kegs of blood but that's not what makes this Amicus produced and Stuart Gordon movie great. The drama that surrounds the main event is every bit as interesting as the horror details. The characters are self-absorbed, callous, morally bankrupt, pleasure seeking humans with feeble minds. 'Stuck' manages to please horror fans, have some humour, and show the vanishing morals of todays youth.

    Not what I expected, but still a pretty good flick. It had a great story and good acting.

    Running at around 85 minutes, this is the perfect rental from the director of 'Re-Animator'. Stuck has an interesting plot and an impressive film to back it up. Mena, a young NA (hey, that's my job too!) decides to get high during a party. On the ride home, she hits a bum pushing his kart. He is stuck through the window, and she panics and decides to drive home. In her garage, she notices that he is still very much alive. The acting was a surprise considering I can't name any of these actors, who did I fine job giving a realistic feel to Stuck. The dark humor is plentiful but never feels forced, and trust me when I say this; you will look away at parts. Filmmakers of the horror genre should take note, the gore is there and it'll make you feel squeamish. It has the feel of an indie but the quality of a much larger film. This is a grade-A B-movie. Never in a million years did I think I would enjoy this movie as much as I did. It has many different genres in mind, but they all manage to blend together to create something special.
