Can you help identify this split-screen movie? It's from at least 8 years ago, featuring a man, his wife/girlfriend, and their baby. Detailed description inside.

A reader on my weblog asks: "[I] have been dying to find out the name of this film that I saw about 8 years ago that incorporated split screens in it. Here is what I can remember of the film: At some point this man/husband locks his wife/girlfriend in a small room in this cabin in the middle of the woods. She is about to have a baby and her husband leaves her alone and gets in his car and drives away from the cabin to try to return later. This is when the split screen comes to play and one screen shows him driving to get something while the other screen shows this woman in pain, screaming with blood everywhere and trying to get out of this locked up cabin. Now here is where my memory starts to loosen up...Then I remember her eventually escaping and close to the cabin there is a river or creek where she meets someone and tries to convince him to get her out of town, but her husband finds her before she can leave. Eventually she escapes somehow and takes the baby with her, which he then tries to take back from her when she moves to the city." Any ideas? Thanks.
