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>

Did You Know?


There actually was a route 666. US Highway 666 ran from Gallup, New Mexico, to Cortez, Colorado, the gateway to Mesa Verde NP. Most of the route crossed the Navajo reservation and passes Ship Rock and near Four Corners, the only point in the US common to four states. The road itself still exists but has been renumbered by the New Mexico Department of Transportation because of superstitions about the number 666. See more »

Get Your Kicks On Route 666
3 December 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Lou Diamond Phillips stars as a US Marshal trying to get witness Steven Williams to Los Angeles to testify at a mob trial. At first he and his team which consist of Lori Petty and Dale Midkiff among others have to only worry about a gang of mob hit men who they tangle with outside a New Mexico diner. Then its redneck sheriff L.Q. Jones and his dim bulb sons. Seeing these two I've no doubt that L.Q. was blood relations with mom. He's on the mob payroll as well.

But when Phillips and his crew make a turn off on a closed road to save some time, that's when trouble really starts. Lou's got a connection to that road which he finds out. And Jones has an even stronger connection. The road holds a terrible secret, there's a reason it's been closed off for years.

Route 666 was a made for television film for the Science Fiction Channel and it's pretty good considering some of what usually comes out of there. Lou and the rest of the cast deliver good performances in a film that glides effortlessly from an action/adventure to a horror flick. For those who like both genres and Lou Diamond Phillips, Route 666 will keep you on the edge of the seat at the end.
