"Freeway Killer" is based on real life serial killer William Bonin. He certainly isn't well known like Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy or Henry Lee Lucas. But there were a lot of similarities with Henry. William also had a partner in crime. Mostly, these killers work alone.
For the movie itself, I was really surprised. It isn't a big budget movie, which is often the case with these films based on real killers. But it certainly is one of the better ones. Scott Leet is not a known name, he mostly did some TV series stuff, but his performance is very good. The only familiar face is Michael Rooker (Cliffhanger, Slither). His breakthrough role was "Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer" ! This time, his part is not that big, but once again, very strong. The story is entertaining and thrilling, there are a couple of shocking scenes but do not expect buckets of blood or "Saw-like" torture scenes. The terror is realistic and gruesome without any cheap thrills. This is possibly one of the best serial killer movies since "Henry" and Leet's performance is certainly up there with Rooker's Henry and Steve Railback's Ed Gein. Much better than most films about real life serial killers, too often the production values are kind of poor or the cast is just average. This is in fact one of the better in that sub-genre..
