Meeting Evil movie scene

Sam Jackson is a mysterious stranger with a bad temper in Meeting Evil.

Familiar faces Samuel L. Jackson (Arena),  Luke Wilson (Middle Men) and Leslie Bibb (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy) star in the psychological crime thriller Meeting Evil.

Jackson goes bad-ass as Richie, a mysterious stranger who shows up at John’s (Wilson) door asking for help with his car. All too soon, the mild-mannered John discovers he has become an unwilling passenger, trapped in a murderous ride through town and deep into the countryside.  When Richie decides to pay a visit to John’s wife (Bibb) and kids, John has no choice but to turn up the testosterone and confront the sadistic and unpredictable killer.

A seemingly by-the-numbers genre entry that smells like it might include ingredients from Collateral and Straw Dogs, this R-rated production popped up in one U.S. theater in early May, 2012 following a video-on-demand run.

Directed and co-written by Chris Fisher (who adapted the novel by Thomas Berger), Meeting Evil also features Peyton List and sexy Tracie Thom, who recently got some screen time in Safe House.

No bonus features on this baby…
