“Open 24 Hours” – In the dead of night, Russell stops to purchase gas and a pair of suspicious tools. He meets his match in Dixie, an overzealous checkout clerk who misinterprets Russell’s dark motives at every turn — or does she? Russell is forced to play into Dixie’s eccentric whims, or risk drawing attention to the eerie rumble that pours from the trunk of his car. Starring Dale Raoul (“True Blood”), Chad Todhunter (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and Brad Leland (“Friday Night Lights“).
