Storyline

When a bus breaks down in a desert road surrounded by woods, the passenger Stacia decides to walk ahead 20 km to a motel. The travelers Birdy and Danny get a lift with the deranged serial-killer truck driver Jim Wheeler to return to a dinning place and are killed. The paranoid Marie and her husband stay in the bus with the driver waiting for help. When the sadistic serial-killer hitchhiker Walker comes to the bus, he kills the trio. Later in the motel, Stacia is disputed by the two psychopaths. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Cohen: Pick me up-brilliant
5 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So far, this is the best M.O.H. produced story yet. I never heard of Cohen but he made a good impression on me with this presentation.

If you don't know what this story's about well, it's about two serial killers (one a drifter and another one who's a truck driver) who cross paths in the midst of their killing sprees and then decide to compete for the one remaining person (Fairuza Balk) who was the only one willing to walk 14 miles to the motel instead of waiting for help along with the rest of the passengers once their charter bus broke down.

The story takes place way up in N. America in which I believe to be the greater Washington area because I've either seen a sign that said "Spokane" or heard it in one of the character's dialog. I also believe the truck driver character was once a mafia hit-man because of some said references to New York and the surrounding Borroughs and something about witnesses. Pretty good and the ending is even great.
