Men are trying to kill them, and the women hiding in the woods are huddled together, completely nude and desperate.

They’re hugging each other for warmth after splashing through water that has soaked their clothes and, on such a cold night, could soon plunge them into hypothermia.

But this is also the moment Black Rock, a girls-in-trouble Sundance thriller starring Katie Aselton, Lake Bell, and Kate Bosworth, joins its sexy let’s-get-the-actors’-clothes-off sensibilities, with something a lot more intense.
