An edge of your seat thriller that does not let you go once the ball starts rolling. This excellent made for T.V. movie came out in the early 90's on the USA network. Three white women, a mother and daughter, along with her auntie drive home on Thanksgiving night and run out of gas in the wrong part of town called "Gravesend". A multicultural street gang takes offense to their territory invasion and sparks a deadly game of cat and mouse with tragic consequences. The women have to utilize basic survival skills and creative intelligence to get out of a kill or be killed situation. What makes this movie stand out is it's dark, gritty and realistic approach. The violent action sequences looks like it came from a theatrical release and has a good amount of blood to go with it. The characters are believable and not one dimensional stereotypes. When the main players are introduced and the premise is set, we go along for the ride as if we are there with them. This is a great find and would be forgotten if not for this recent official DVD release. The movie itself is four stars but I'll give it five for the cheap DVD price that definitely makes it worth owning. Makes me wonder if "Judgement Night" with Emilio Estevez which came out in theaters a year later was inspired by this little film. It's a T.V. cult classic in need of a following. They don't make it like this anymore!

I had an interest in seeing this movie after reading an IMDB forum for the movie "Judgment Night" which has a very similar plot to this. I had never heard of this movie before reading a thread post and I had been interested in seeing this and luckily, I was able to see that it was released on DVD. I have even read that this was a TV movie on the USA Network back in the early 1990s.

Anyway, like "Judgment Night," which came out after this, the movie plot goes like this: Three women were going home from Brooklyn on Thanksgiving, but it turned out the car was out of gas and the girl who was driving made a turn into a really bad part of town. Suddenly, they're the targets of some gang, lead by a really vicious criminal. They do whatever it takes to flee them and to survive.

I can tell just by watching this that this was a TV movie, but it was a really interesting one at that. Sure, I know that I have seen "Judgment Night" before and while I like that movie, I wanted to see a different spin on it, especially with women being the protagonists. I highly recommend this movie.

I agree 100% with the first review from BayAreaSav. I remember seeing this movie on USA when I was in my early teens and have been waiting till this day for it to come out on DVD. I was extatic to find it the other day here on Amazon and purchased it right away. For a t.v. movie of the early 90's it still completely blows me away at how strong the story is. A must see and a must own in my book.
