Avoid those off-the-highway detours.
14 May 2001 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This movie was a very well made and enjoyable little film. The old story about crazed backwoods creeps is well played here. The heros inadvertantly drive in to trouble in a small Southern town. The hillbilly loons are well played and resist the over-the-top performances. In an early role, Rob Estes is terrific as Ryan, the city boy who joins forces with a Vietnam vet to save a young lady from the "hillbillies". These "hillbillies" will never make it to Beverly Hills. I really enjoyed this film....very entertaining.
