ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Summary: A girl is stranded on the side of the road and in need of assistance. She has a flat tire and has no service on her phone. When a vehicle approaches to help she is frightened by the dark figure that steps out of the truck. The man who pulls over insists that he will be helping her and intimidates the young girl who cannot deny his insistence. While the girl begins the repairs with a few tool that the man brought, he creepily hovers over her, commenting on her scandalous attire, pretty hair, and smell. He clutches a tire iron in hand as if ready to strike the young girl. Instead of lashing out, he offers the tire iron to the girl and begins to instruct her on how to properly change a tire. After she struggles to release the lug nuts, the man steps in to release the bolts. They switch places (physical) and switch character roles. The girl finds photos of the man and his family in his work bag while the man rambles on about his daughter at home. The young girl immediately changes her demeanor. She is cold now, methodical as she retreats around the car to find a weapon she has hidden before hand. She has baited and found her next victim. The man realizes she knows more than she should about a stranger on the road but it is too late and turns into the swinging tire iron that the girl grabbed from the other side of the car. He is stunned and prone on the ground. The girl closes her eyes, tilts her head up, and smiles. Swaying in the glow of the headlights she is consumed with ecstasy. After her kill, she drags her victim to the trunk, already lined with plastic, and throws him in. She takes of her blonde wig and trows it on top of him, slamming the trunk. Methodically, she changes the tire as if she belongs on pit row. Finally, before she leaves the scene she runs back to the mans vehicle to grab an item from the truck. She chooses a “hula girl” from the dash, noticing an empty car seat in the back, before returning to her car. She rearranges her cluttered dash to make room for her new trophy, whips the blood of her face, and drives away.
