This little drama, 65 minutes running time, is directed by Irvin Kersher and is well paced and with sustainable interest. Ann(Luana Patten)and Benji(Tom Selden)are teenage sweethearts eloping to Mexico. As they run out of gas, they meet a stranger named Jamie(Steven Marlo), who seems very eager to hit the road and continue south with the couple. Little do they know that Jamie is a sociopath that has just killed his boss and is not shy to kill again. He kills a woman along the way and it is obvious he is dangerous. Jamie will try to force himself on Ann; the couple decide to not continue helping the killer elude the authorities. A major problem is planning their escape to get away from his stronghold over them.
Rounding out the cast: Ed Nelson, Dan Sheridan, William Shaw, Carlo Fiore and Dan Blocker.
