Directed by Richard Franklin
Wisecracking trucker Quid (Stacey Keach) is hauling meat across Australia when he becomes suspicious that a creepy driver is the same serial killer who’s been butchering women in the area. While tailing the psycho, he picks up hitchhiker Jamie Lee Curtis, who eagerly joins him in his pursuit of justice. But this clever killer has taken steps to make sure police suspicion falls on Quid instead! Director Richard Franklin (PSYCHO 2) used Alfred Hitchcock as inspiration for his ultra-tense horror thriller. Fans of highway horror hits like DUEL and THE HITCHER are in for a wild ride.
A truck driver and a hitchhiker try to catch a serial killer butchering women in Australia.
Cast: Stacy Keach, Jamie Lee Curtis, Marion Edward, Grant Page, Thaddeus Smith
An 80s classic set in Australia, the passing is not what i is today in modern films... but it's worth the watch. Tension, mystery, car chases and an ending that could only happen in the 80s. Loved it!
I watched this in 1982, great suspense and storyline. I watched it again recently, movie worth the watch. 4 skulls for early 1980s concept .
alot of cringey solo narration, otherwise a decent flick
A classic and one of my favourites.
