The rural town of Shellby has been dying ever since the new highway passed it by. Tourists no longer stop at BETSY'S CAFE for lunch, or at JOHNNY'S GARAGE for gas. But Joey and his pals 'have a plan'...When business gets 'really' slow, a DETOUR sign and a few nails on the highway solve their problem. But in time, this seemingly harmless prank turns into something far more sinister. Some of the travelers begin to disappear...especially if that traveler happens to be a WOMAN. Such is the case with 'Chrissy', who is running from her husband, but suddenly finds herself running for her life. She seemingly vanishes into thin air...but where did she go? Is EVERYONE in Shellby involved in her disappearance? And who will find her first?...the police?...the psychopathic killer?...or the sadistic pervert? Written by Charles MacDonald

Did You Know?


During the last day of filming, a hurricane knocked out the electricity and telephones. Despite the power outage, filming was completed by running lights off of the producer's car battery. However, there was no air-conditioning, so temperatures on the set soared to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Filming was completed on schedule. See more »

This TOURIST TRAP is NOT a Rest Stop !!!
11 December 2007 | by guestar57See all my reviews


www.angelfire.com/indie/detourtohell/ The first film of the Etheridges ! The first effort from this husband & wife team shows the promise of what they could accomplish in 2008. There is at least 3 killers in this tourist trap of a town. Acting is not too bad,And had a lot going on with all characters. The music by Migdalia is always there films strongest point, Well the camera work too. …Although the plot has been done before with more money. Filmed in the Dade County area of Florida, Golden West Films always make good use of on-location scenery. So, To sum up DTH: Lots of death and different weapons and accents to develop characters that breathe---satisfying ending( Which was worried wouldn't happen).
