Unhinged

Rachel is a single mother whose bad day gets even worse when she beeps her horn at a fellow driver (Russell Crowe) during rush-hour traffic.

The initial case of road rage quickly escalates into full-blown terror as Rachel discovers the psychopath’s sinister plan for revenge. With Caren Pistorius, Gabriel Bateman.

Russell Crowe’s revenge thriller ‘Unhinged’ is bloody and hilarious. His performance as a nameless, blood-thirsty psychopath comes disturbingly natural.” (New York Post)

“Russell Crowe bulks up and hunkers down to play a murderous misogynist in Derrick Borte’s road-rage thriller.” (The NYTimes)
