As director William Dickerson notes on the website for "Detour," the film was one that was conceived both out of pragmatic need, but still fueled with creative spirit. "It was something we could afford to do, outside of the Hollywood machine," he writes, calling the film an "experiment in the simplicity of filmmaking." And the result is a contained thriller that takes place largely inside a car, but boasts a concept that requires directorial skill and acting acumen to pull off

As director William Dickerson notes on the website for "Detour," the film was one that was conceived out of pragmatic need, but still fueled with creative spirit. "It was something we could afford to do, outside of the Hollywood machine," he writes, calling the film an "experiment in the simplicity of filmmaking." The result is a contained thriller that takes place largely inside a car, but boasts a concept that requires directorial skill and acting acumen to pull off.

In this exclusive clip from the movie, we see both director and actor bring their best for the fore. Starring Neil Hopkins ("Skyline," "Lost") and Brea Grant ("Heroes," "Dexter"), "Detour" follows ad man Jackson Alder, who has just left a lunch meeting, when his car is swept away by a massive mudslide. Trapped, he must fight for his survival if he's to see his loved ones again. In this sequence from the movie, we see Jackson try and get his bearings as the situation he's in begins to sink in.

"Detour" opens in theaters and goes VOD on March 29th. Watch below.
