Trivia

Several articles of graffiti are seen in the rest area near the highway; 'Don't look up here, you're pissing on your shoes' above the urinals, 'My mother made me a whore' on the wall, and 'All that you love will be carried away' in the broken map case. These are taken from another short story by Stephen King called "All you love will be carried away", found in the collection 'Everything's Eventual'. See more »

Goofs

Robinson is following Dolan's Cadillac to Los Angeles and at the detour, the sign points "DETOUR" to the right yet the highway flag-person sends them to the left into the desert. See more »

I agree it was a good movie!
17 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure why this would be a direct to DVD movie because it is a lot better than some of the crap I have seen hit the theaters. I mean, the movie "The Watchmen" made it into the theaters didn't it? or "The Spirit? Now those were a waste of time in my opinion. I love Christian Slater and he did an excellent job portraying an evil bastard that you love to hate. As said on another comment, it's not a huge blockbuster but it is definitely a good watch and I would recommend it. Perhaps you need to be a little morbid to enjoy it as much as I did but it needs to get the recognition that it deserves. Just because the trailer shows a lot of the movie doesn't mean you know everything. Trust me, I was surprised at the end. I give it a "2 thumbs up!"
