Sarah, a plain and timid dental hygienist, is taking it one day at a time. When not immersing herself in work, she’s attending AA meetings and letting down her guard to return the attentions of a new suitor, fellow recovering alcoholic Kevin. As their romance buds, Sarah reveals a secret about her past that explains her apparent anxiety and fragility. Little does Sarah know that her secret is about to resurface—only to drag her back down with it.

Convicted serial killer Garrick can’t stop thinking about Sarah, his ex-girlfriend. Now that he has broken out of prison, where he was serving a life sentence for murder, he’s on the run toward whatever life his constantly changing appearance can afford him. Leaving bodies in his wake, he makes his way across the country, back to sweet, sweet Sarah. When Sarah learns the news of Garrick’s escape, she grows paralyzed with fear. Though she’s begun a new life in a new town with new people who mean to protect her, is it possible that her former lover will exact revenge? Worse, what if his hold over her is stronger than she ever imagined? Horror prodigy Adam Wingard directed this thriller on the tiniest of shoestrings.
