COMPETITION: Win 1 of 2 copies of ‘Mojave’ starring Oscar Isaac & Garrett Hedlund on DVD
We love a good road thriller, where unsuspecting travellers discover they aren’t truly alone in the vast, isolated and smouldering expanses of the American desert – think titles like 1986’s The Hitcher, or 1997’s Breakdown. There’s something about the unique psychological landscape of these films that sees their heart-racing, bone-chilling effects playing on our minds long beyond their hour-and-a-half durations. Luckily, we remind ourselves, we’re safe and comfortable in our homes, at a sheltered distance from the types of weirdos encountered in these remote settings. But what if the danger of the desert followed you home?
From William Monahan, the Oscar-winning writer of The Departed, Mojave delivers this unsettling twist on the road thriller genre. Garrett Hedlund of TRON: Legacy fame plays Thomas, a troubled, almost suicidal artist who has an ominous encounter in the desert with a homicidal, chameleon-like drifter. Said drifter is Jack, played by the sensational Oscar Isaac of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and A Most Violent Year, who proceeds to follow Thomas back to his privileged L.A. domain, attempting to infiltrate and destroy his seemingly-perfect life.
To celebrate the home release of Mojave courtesy of Signature Entertainment, we’re giving away two copies of the dark, psycho thriller on DVD. For your chance to win, simply follow us on Twitter, and retweet the Mojave competition post before May 29th 2016.
