A Forgotten Exploitation Gem
11 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this on the shelves of a local record store today and noticed the Blue Underground logo so I picked it up. Upon further inspection, meaning I just read the box, I noticed that David Hess was the star so I just had to give it a shot. It was a very enjoyable movie that deserves to be recognized much more than it has. I had never even heard of it before today and it was so good that I wish I had so I could have enjoyed it sooner.

David Hess is one of the kings of exploitation and he rules in this film as the hitchhiker that destroys a bickering couple's trip. The other actors weren't bad either. The story is great and even better than most exploitation films because it's very well thought out and has a lot of clever plot twists that you will never see coming. It also has great blood and gore. You won't want to miss it.

Check this one out if you can find it. If you can't find it, sucks to be you!
