Dopey woman-in-jeopardy flick. Abused wife Della (Basinger) heads to the mall on Christmas Eve and attracts the unwanted attention of four teen sociopaths. She finds herself running to a deserted construction site with a toolbox and a desire to kick some male tail.

Talented actors Kim Basinger ("L.A. Confidential") and Lucas Haas ("Witness") have done some terrific work before, but are saddled with a thoroughly mindless script and minimal direction. Darkly lit, this movie is a would-be cat-and-mouse chase thriller that pits abused housewife Basinger against Haas and his group of horny deranged thugs. She runs through the woods to avoid capture, with only a red tool box filled with conveniently sharp tools to fight with. Nothing is believable in this movie. The characters are either dumb and bloodthirsty or dumb and scared. Therefore, there's no one to root for. Too bad.
