A unique and original film.
26 August 2004 | by (Wasatch Mountains, Utah) – See all my reviews

If you love quirky movies this one is a gem. Basically the story plays out like this ... Charlie, played by actor Chad Lowe and Rachel, played by actress Kristy Swanson. Are young lovers who decide to elope in Nevada ... Bad mistake. They decide to take a seldom used highway where they meet a old gas station owner played by veteran actor Richard Farnsworth. It is at the gas station where Mr Farnsworth warns the young lovers not to drive a certain highway while tired. Of coarse they don't listen to him and procede to take the deserted highway where Rachel is nabbed by a person known as " Hell Cop " He promptly takes Rachel to hell to become satans ( Patrick Bergin ) bride. Charlie must overcome his fear and rescue his love from hell. Hell turns out to be both a terrible and humorous place with interesting characters. I found the story well written and directed. If your looking for a fun and unique movie to watch I highly recommend this now out of print movie.
