‘Driven’ Pulls up into SAFilm

GameStop, Inc.

Driven was one of those movies I didn’t expect to like, especially when with the subject matter. I’m not a fan of horror, I’m not a fan of demon possession, I don’t like snark and really, how many times can we see a movie about a fed up cabby tolerating horrible people?

However, I somehow really enjoyed this film.

Emerson Graham (Casey Dillard) drives for a company called, “Ferry,” dealing with drunks, princesses, big time talkers and just pain weirdos. She keeps an audio recording of her thoughts regarding these riders to help writer her stand up comedy routines. One night, Emerson picks up Roger (Richard Speight Jr.) who appears to be just another angry, brooding customer that needs to make several stops that have several dark turns.

The feel of this film is very, Supernatural-esque, which is perfect. as Speight was a huge part of that series. I am not familiar with Dillard’s previous work, but her pulling double-duty as writer and lead actress.

Their buddy cop, comedic timing is great together and for a movie that is totally not my thing, I found myself saying, “Huh, that was cleaver,” or, “This is pretty funny.” The only spoiler I’ll give are the essential oils and aromatherapy become apart of the the demon hunting process. The quirky cute connection that these two characters have on camera adds to the enjoyment of the film.

Driven is making its Texas premiere at the Silver Anniversary of the  San Antonio Film Festival (SAFilm), and really should be a night-time showing. The only confusing part related to the movie is that it runs at 9 a.m. on Friday, August 2, 2019. On the bright side for the filmmakers, after the screening they have the rest of the weekend to party it up in San Antonio.

If you need something to hold you over for the final season of Supernatural then Driven will definitely hold you over until the fall.

Driven screens on Friday, August 2, 2019 at 9 a.m.

Feik Family Rotunda, Tobin Center:

100 Auditorium Cir,

San Antonio, TX 78205

Summary

Driven is a quirky and quite enjoyable thriller comedy that will give you, your Supernatural fix while appreciating the chemistry between Dillard and Speight on screen.
