It’s late at night, it’s time to go home, so you and your friend make the decision to download the Generic Rideshare App where you will be sharing your ride with strangers to cut costs. You are told to keep an eye out for your driver Timothy, he will be driving a red car… When he arrives, you both load in, but once you find yourself both seated comfortably in the car, you begin to notice something seems off with the entire scenario before you. As the driver starts the car and begins to head out, you look at your friend, who looks straight at you, as you both come to the conclusion that something has gone terribly, terribly wrong.
