In 1978 Sheriff Reed captures the deranged serial killer known as The Death Valley Drifter in the desert and the criminal is sentenced to death. In the present day, Sheriff Reed is near retirement and will be replaced by his son. Whilst they are having a meal in a rest stop diner in the middle of the desert, a runaway car with three thieves who robbed a casino stops in the spot for refueling. One of the robbers is the former boyfriend of the waitress Maya, and another criminal is wounded in the backseat. There is a shootout among the thieves and the sheriffs and their car explodes, however the body of the wounded criminal vanishes and the survivors discover that they are stranded in the place. Furthermore, they are stalked and chased by a fiend with stench known as The Reeker. Written by

If you have seen REEKER, skip this sequel (actually, a prequel). It is virtually identical in plot to the original. A small group of people find themselves stranded at a desert roadside stop. One by one, members of the group are assaulted by a bloodthirsty specter until there are only a couple left. Ah, but is this really happening? Those who saw the first movie will know that a major twist is coming at the end. Reeker himself remains sort of interesting, but he does nothing here that he did not do in the first movie. Also, his killing ground here looks pretty darned close to his killing ground in the first movie. If there is a second sequel, Reeker will need to take a vacation in Vegas or L.A. to spice things up. Some good, gory kills, and the Reeker animation is still eye-popping. Also, veteran actor Robert Pine is on hand as the local sheriff. But REEKER cognoscenti may safely give this one a pass.
