      Audience Member 90's television fodder. Mark Hamill plays an escaped unhinged but somewhat likable mental case so this forgotten movie has one asset. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member I mean, how could I not watch this movie? It's got Michael Dudikoff, Mark Hamill and Robert Mitchum improbably together in a riff on The Hitcher or The Vanishing or any other number of hitchhiking maniacs on the road movies. Dudikoff is a cop who is more married to his job than to his Russian wife Lara, who finally decides to drive off and then make the decision to pick up Justin Mckay (Hamill), who grew up with a mother who parted her sister's hair with a butcher knife and has passed on the willingness to kill to her son. Over one brutal evening, Lara must ride with the killer as he destroys everyone he can, ending with him trying to convince Mitchum, playing a doctor, to give her electoshock therapy against her will. If you're used to seeing Dudikoff be a ninja — an American Ninja — he barely fights in this. But hey — it's a Cannon Film, which means that it has some level of strangeness, maybe because it was shot in Italy* instead of America, but has stuntman Bob Bralver directing it, who only made one other full-length movie, Rush Week, which isn't all that bad. He's joined by writer Russell V. Manzatt, who also wrote that aforementioned college stalk and slash. *That's the claim I keep reading, even if IMDB says that it was made in California. I mean, with all the neons and blue color, this could have been a late Italian direct to video movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is something for sure. Lora's story would've been pretty interesting if they showed her and Lawson's relationship before she left. The movie started with a soft opening of the killer, Justin, trying to buy a card but he doesn't have a card to prove his identity or something. Anyway, his anger gets the best of him and it's obvious that this will play a role in the movie. Throughout the movie Justin's mental illness becomes more evident and it's obvious that Lora and the people around are growing uneasy. He seems soft and cute but then BOOM! he's taken a woman's eye. A turn off if you ask me. Lora is one of those tropes that she just continuously ends up in Justin's clutches and she's super chill throughout the movie. Instead of possibly saving one of the girls that Justin kills, she drives off. I mean. . .free for all. She's even super chill when she tells the "cop" that Justin had just killed a woman. Screw Lawrence, that's all I have to say about him. Justin is just coming from every place, at the worst possibly times, dressed for his roles. He dresses for his roles and that king doesn't give a shit. He takes pictures of EVERYTHING, Lora's side profile like 15 times and then all the people his k-words. It's great. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review william k Mediocre slasher drama consists mostly of a long drawn out chase; casting Mark Hamill as a psychotic teenage killer is a nice touch, though. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member an edge of your seat action/thriller with some slasher moments. excellent movie!
