Storyline

Smith, a mob informer hiding out with the Witness Protection Program, decides to make a break for it and hide out in the Arizona desert. The Feds catch up with him and rescue him just before a group of hitmen can manage to silence him for good. In the course of getting Smith away from the mafia thugs, the pair of agents assigned to protect him turn onto an abandoned stretch of highway nicknamed 'Route 666' after the mysterious death of a prison chain gang. As the three continue on their way, they soon discover just what happened to the chain gang, and how the highway earned its name. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Wow, and Not in a Good Way
8 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely horrible.

Firstly, Lori Petti -- whoever she is -- is miscast. She has a way too thin force and passive demeanor to play a Federal Marshal. And her black hair cut in a crew cut is freakish. And not is a kewl poppy good way.

The plot is idiotic. There's a chain gang that are sort of zombies and sort of spirits and are attracted to blood, but for some unexplained reason cannot walk off the asphalt.

Who knows why? Lou Diamond Phillips cannot act his way out of a paper bag. His role consists of delivering ridiculous lines in straight face.

The plot makes no sense.

I gave this crapola 2 stars because the black guy, Steven Williams was actually able to deliver a good performance.

Everyone else in this film stinks.
