NIGHT DRIVE (2010) Reviews and overview


‘Some things are worse than dying’

Night Drive is a 2010 South African horror film written and directed by Justin Head from a storyline co-written with C.A. van Aswegen. The movie stars Christopher Beasley, Corine du Toit, Brandon Auret and Leroy Gopal.


In the African bushveld, an eclectic mix of tourists is left stranded during a night drive. It is only when they realize that they are being hunted by a group of poachers that the terror truly begins…



“The best things this movie has going for it are the villains and the sense of dread. When waiting for things to kick off, the suspense builds rather effectively […] When it does pick up steam, the violence is grisly and visceral, not afraid to get gory but never crossing over the top.” Wicked Horror

” …writer/director Justin Head doesn’t blow his wad too early, nicely pacing out the hints at the horrors to come while giving us the necessary exposition and back-stories for everyone, so that when the shit hits the fan around the halfway point, you will likely care about a few of the people.” Horror Movie a Day
