Vastly underrated ..... One of the best of it's type .............
13 November 2013 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

From the ridiculous IMDb rating of less than 5.0, I had zero expectations for "The Road Killers". This movie is definitely one of the most underrated films I have reviewed. Craig Sheffer's psycho, Charles Manson-like performance, rivals some of the best bad guy actors out there, and instantly brings to mind several of Don Stroud's villainous characters. Christopher Lambert fans will no doubt be disappointed, as Sheffer completely dominates film. There are moments of dark humor throughout, some unexpected developments, and a bang up conclusion on the train tracks. The supporting cast is a real mixed bag, with the late Adrienne Shelly most memorable. I am definitely pounding the table for this unknown gem. - MERK
