When Ben Stiller makes the "Hell Cop" motion resulting in the coffee pot lid blowing off, you can see the black rubber hose used to make the stunt work running along his arm. See more »
When I come home from a long day in Hell, there's nothing I'd rather reach for than a fire-brewed bottle of Styx Beer. Made from the filthiest waters from our own River Styx. Styx Beer is a third more toxic than any other regular beer. The worst beer - the filthiest beer - the deadliest beer. It's Styx Beer!

Charlie Sykes (Chad Lowe) and his girlfriend Rachel Clark (Kristy Swanson) are traveling to Las Vegas to secretly get married to each other. They decide to follow through a secondary road, and while fueling their car in "Sam's Last Chance" gas station, they are advised by the owner and attendant Sam (Richard Farnsworth) to not sleep after the second tree in the road. They fall asleep in the car, and a policeman arrests Rachel. Charlie returns to the gas station, and Sam tells him that she has been arrested by a Hellcop, and he has to go to hell if he wants to rescue his fiancée.
"Highway to Hell" is a gem underrated in IMDb. I have seen this cult-movie at least six times, and I really love it. I have an used VHS, and I do not know why this movie has never been released on DVD. The clumsy baby face hero Chad Lowe has a great adventure trying to bring his girlfriend back from Hell. The now famous Ben Stiller, in the beginning of his career, is very hilarious in the role of a cook, and also as Attila the Hun at the table with Hitler and Cleopatra. The special effects and the music score are very good and I really recommend this movie for fans of a trash and funny original adventure. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Estrada Para o Inferno" ("Highway to Hell")
