Mr. Wrong

Thriller 1h 28m 1986

When Meg buys a used Jaguar from a shady car dealer so she can visit her parents on their rural farm, she gets a lot more than she expects. Soon after getting it, she starts hearing choking sounds coming from the back seat. Things get even weirder when she picks up a pair of hitchhikers who mysteriously disappear into thin air.

Kiwi filmmaker Gaylene Preston’s feature debut is a thoroughly engrossing ghost story which toys knowingly with traditional thriller tropes, tossing in enough red-herrings to keep viewers constantly second guessing. In its examination of fear and one woman’s reaction to it, Mr Wrong is far more than just another ghost story.
