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?
"Those that get lost...stay lost."

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
Detour to Hell was also edited into a short film festival version called "Skinner's Cabin". This short version may be found in a feature film compilation called "Bigfoot and Other Adventures". See more
