Film: The Incident

The Incident is an independent film from 1967, written by Nicholas E. Baehr and directed by Larry Peerce.

It's a subway rider's nightmare: Being stuck in a subway car with two punks who will do anything they can to insult and antagonize you, just because they can, made even worse by the fact that no other passenger will do anything to help.

This film is gritty and, at times, really tough to watch. It keeps the audience on the edge of its seats.

The 2011 film by the same name can be found under Asylum: Blackout

Tropes:

  • The Alcoholic: One passenger is a drunk who sleeps throughout the entire movie. At the end, he falls out of his seat, too drunk to even wake up when he hits the floor.
  • The Big Rotten Apple
  • Oh, Crap: When Felix finally beats down Joe, Artie pulls this face. He's screwed and he knows it.
  • Subways Suck
