Snow Witted

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This Hulu thriller is professionally constructed, with a few well-placed twists and turns, and it may be worth a look, but it somehow lacks a real pulse; it can't truly make the adrenaline flow. It tells the story of Darby (Havana Rose Liu), who leaves rehab when she learns her mother is in the hospital. She comes across a blizzard, and a police officer recommends she shelter in a nearby visitors center. There are only four other people there: married couple Sandi (Dale Dickey) and Ed (Dennis Haysbert), plus Ash (Danny Ramirez) and Lars (David Rysdahl). When Darby goes outside to try to find a phone signal (a very convenient trope), she discovers a young girl, tied up and apparently kidnapped, in the back of a van. One of the people inside is guilty, and possibly dangerous, but which one? Truthfully, the snowbound atmosphere and the single setting kept me watching.
