Cargo (stylized as [Cargo]) is a 2018 American thriller film directed by James Dylan and starring Ron Thompson.[1]

Plot[edit | edit source]

A corrupt businessman awakens trapped inside a locked cargo container with only a cell phone. He is given 24 hours to raise ten million in his own ransom money or his kidnappers will let him suffocate.

Critical reception[edit | edit source]

Ain't It Cool News wrote "This is a low budget horror film. This entire movie sticks in that storage container. If you enjoy a film that dares to give you every shot possible within a large box like BURIED, SAW, and DEVIL, then I think you’ll enjoy CARGO."[1]

1428 Elm said "So overall Cargo is a suspenseful movie that delivers. Ron Thompson gives a solid performance. You can feel his anxiety and pain (there is one scene where he “tortures” himself). He is the only one onscreen, after all. I would give Cargo 4 out of 5 stars. It’s a short movie with a strong message, money can't always save you!"[2]

Film Threat wrote "Since then, strong entries in the subgenre like Locke and 10 Cloverfield Lane have kept the fire alive. The new indie film [Cargo] wants to join their ranks, but within the first minute, it’s clear that its contents should be left to suffocate and die."[3]

Rue Morgue said "If [CARGO], was a five-minute short film, I’d recommend a watch with a drunken batch of friends, but as a feature. . . Well, I’ve already labeled the movies it borrows from, so just watch those instead."[4]

Soundtrack[edit | edit source]

The Cargo original motion picture soundtrack was composed by Tangerine Dream front man Thorsten Quaeschning.[1]

Ain't It Cool News wrote "The soundtrack here is awesome by Tangerine Dream's Thorsten Quaeschning! It really reminded me of John Carpenter's THE THING at times."[1]

Mojo magazine wrote "IF ANYONE knows how to pastiche an '80s Tangerine Dream soundtrack it’s Thorsten Quaeschning of Picture Palace Music."[5]

Conversely, Film Threat said "The synthwave soundtrack is a bizarre fit for the material, but it's fine."[3]

Novelization[edit | edit source]

The Cargo official novelization was written by Cargo producer J.C. Maçek III and published by UK publisher Bloodhound Books.[6]

Kirkus Reviews described the novel as "A frequently intense kidnapping tale that takes full advantage of its confined setting."[6]
