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

best Episode of masters if horror.
26 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now this is tale of two serial killers who hit a bump in the road , that bump in the road is each other . The camera work was done really well and most of the time it was brilliantly acted , the storyline was really good , I was hooked to the screen and I didn't want to take my eyes of of it , but the down side is that its not a master of horror , horror nowadays is overrated, someone gets stabbed in a film and somewhere down the line someone calls it a horror , horror genre should be films that make you scared , unfortunately I wasn't scared, I think their should be a different kind of genre for these types of movies and that is Gothic thriller , so its all around the Gothic theme it has gore and vampires or whatever but doesn't actually scare you, pick me up is exactly that the plot was amazing and i just loved the bond between the two serial killers, cliché ending though could have been made more exciting , but it made me smile really good film 8/10
