Endangered is a 2020 American thriller feature film about a ride-share driver who finds herself in danger after picking up a passenger. Also known as Fox Hunt Drive

Directed by Drew Walkup from a screenplay co-written by Adam Armstrong and Marcus Devivo, the REBL HQ production stars Lizzie Zerebko, Michael Olavson, Edward Craig and Ryan Forrestal.

Alison, a down-on-her-luck young professional, spends her evenings trying to make ends meet as a ride-share driver. Wrapping her shift, she decides to take on one last passenger – only to find herself in unexpected danger when she discovers the mysterious stranger is not what he appears to be.

Alison is cajoled into taking the fare against her better judgement, and when she discovers blood-stained jewellery and a gun in his bag, she begins to fear that she may not make it out of this trip alive.

Through a twisted turn of events, Alison turns to her enigmatic passenger for help. In over her head, she must get through the night covering her tracks, avoiding the police, and discovering who her inscrutable passenger truly is…

“Adam Armstrong and Marcus DeVivo’s scheming script is full of staggering delights. For the majority of the picture, there’s a lingering sense of doom and depravity that’ll soon corrupt the unsuspecting ride-share driver. However, there’s a lot more to expect in Fox Hunt Drive than just an innocent driver and a nefarious passenger. Some unconvincing conveniences aside, this is a vastly effective thriller that exercises the element of surprise.” Film Threat

“there’s unnecessary scenes combined with unnecessary people, like the sleazy drug dealer who owns what looks like an alligator — a little too stereotypical Floridian, which definitely cheapens the film. The ending has far too many loose ends, and after spending so much time with these characters, it’s a shame it doesn’t end better for them.” Film Pulse

“There is blood, and violence, but thankfully not over-the-top and something from a comic book. It’s raw and basic and real. With this safe genre and good direction, Fox Hunt Drive gives a good few twists that push the film forward in its short runtime in the hands of two talented and skilled leads like Zerebko and Olavson.” Flickering Myth

“The setup hints at something along the lines of Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx in Collateral, but what actually unfolds is so much more bonkers. Stylishly-directed and well-acted by two leads who take their characters well past the limits of traditional genre roles, Fox Hunt Drive sets up expectations and then subverts them.” Good Times

” …the ending is painfully telegraphed near the end of the film and personally lost me. That said, where these tonal shifts would kill a movie that was poor in quality, Fox Hunt Drive rises above it and comes across as a truly thrilling experience that has some insane moments. Simply between the cinematography and wonderful acting this movie steps above many others but combined with a clever story and good writing goes far beyond expectations.” Horror Buzz

“Director Drew Walkup shows a deft hand at ratcheting up suspense and an eye for great-looking shots, the latter captured nicely indeed by cinematographer Anthony C. Kuhnz. Go in as cold as possible to Fox Hunt Drive and you will be rewarded with an entertaining film chock full of unexpected elements and admirable direction and performances.” Horror Fuel

“Both Lizzie Zerebko and Michael Olavson both deliver phenomenal performances and play well off each other’s emotions throughout the film. It’s almost like a game of cat and mouse, but only one of them knows they’re playing. Lizzie especially blew me away with her character and the wild transformation we see her go through from beginning to end.” Pop Horror

” …in the end, a film of this ilk lives and dies on whether it can engross and surprise its audience, and by this metric Fox Hunt Drive clears the bar with room to spare — tight plotting and smart direction make this creative team one to watch moving forward.” Rough Cut

” …a pretty cool, character-driven thriller that gets the most out of its situation, and even its main, very confined location, and plays its emotional registers to the hilt – but in a way that always remains believable and even relatable. This is of course also helped by its two very solid leads, while a dynamic directorial effort keeps the tension high throughout, and favouring suspense over spectacle…” Search My Trash

Fox Hunt Drive is an excellent debut feature for Walkup, Devivo and Armstrong. It’s also a sort of culmination of a long journey as they and Olavson have known and done short films together since high school. I wish I could say more about it but I don’t want to risk giving things away. Because with a plot like this, knowing the outcome of one situation can easily give away others.” Voices from the Balcony
