"Hit And Run" is a 2009 horror movie that was inspired by a true story involving Chante Mallard and homeless man Gregory Biggs. The names were changed in this horror thriller starring Laura Breckenridge and Kevin Corrigan. The movie first debuted on the big screen. It is now available on DVD.
"Hit And Run" tells the story of a young college student who hits what she thinks is an animal late one night while driving home drunk after a party. When the girl arrives home, she realizes the object she hit is a real person, a local homeless man. Scared beyond words, the young woman tries to cover up the hit and run accident by waiting until the homeless man dies. She then disposes of his body. She keeps the accident a secret until police uncover what really happened.
The movie was inspired by the 2001 hit and run death involving Chante Jawan Mallard. Her case made national headlines in 2002 as the college student who hit a homeless man with her vehicle and kept the man in her garage until he died slowly. The victim was a homeless man named Gregory Biggs. Biggs was impaled to her windshield after she struck him. Mallard enlisted the help of a male friend to help her dispose of his body. She got away with the crime until a tip led police to her. Chante Mallard, 27, was convicted for the death of Gregory Biggs. She is now serving a 50 year sentence in a Texas correctional facility.
This case also inspired the movie "Stuck."
