I have fond memories of this movie. When I was younger I had a thing, and still do, for thrillers or horror films that are driven (no pun intended) by cars. While killer car films were my favorite, I often enjoyed the occasional thriller that only had a single link to automobiles. My mother brought a VHS copy of Freeway home for me back when it was still in print and I remember watching it a few times and liking it though I considered it a more "adult" movie since it paid more attention to plot and character than vehicular mayhem. Years later, I lost the video yet still remembered the movie. Why Anchor Bay released this I really cannot say. You can ask most of your friends and family and I feel confident to say most of them will never have seen it. A quick check of the Internet Movie Database tells that the film did not do well at the box office. This is a movie that has wandered around in the shadows of late night cable for over ten years making the occasional impression on someone who never forgot it. The movie, I suppose, was a failure to it's creators. But it's a strange little gem. A weird vision of late-night killings on the freeways in LA in the 1980's (where I have heard freeway killings were very frequent). I don't know who spoke up for this movie and got in on DVD in widescreen but I bought it as soon as I saw it, walking wide-eyed to the checkout counter and leaving the cashier wondering how I could be so excited about some cheap DVD with a generic looking cover. It's no masterpiece of suspense but it is certainly a tight little thriller that has gone overlooked and, despite it's DVD release, probably always will. Pick it up.

Back in the mid to late 80's, a popular fad emerged in LA (that's Los Angeles to you and me) that involved drivers on the freeways taking pot shots at each other, I suppose as a means to relieve tension, as I've heard the road ways in that area have some of the worst traffic congestion in the country. While I've never condoned such activity, I, as many probably, can certainly relate to the frustration about being stuck in traffic and having to deal with snarled traffic, noodle headed drivers, and endless construction projects (at least in and around Chicago). Freeway (1988), released around the time when the incidents of shootings on the LA freeways seemed at their height, tries to capitalize on the event, rather unsuccessfully, in my opinion.

The DVD case promotes the fact the film was produced by the same people who produced Highlander (1986), and that might carry a bit more weight for me if those same people hadn't also been responsible for the incomprehensible sequel Highlander II: The Quickening. The film was directed by someone named Francis Delia, and a quick check of this person's credits include episodes of Friday the 13th (the TV series...remember that? I do...) and Weird Al Yankovic videos...uh oh...things are not looking good. The film stars Darlanne Fluegel (she was the blonde floozy William Petersen's character would shack up with from time to time in 1985's To Live and Die in L.A.), James Russo (a recognizable B movie actor and graduate of the Mickey Rourke School of Acting and Attitude, has made appearances in mainstream movies like Donnie Brasco and The Postman), Billy Drago (he played Frank Nitti in the 1987 film The Untouchables...

I just wanted to say what a great movie I thought this was. It had just the right amount of everything to make a truly great movie (i.e., suspense, romance, intrigue, etc). It's something that I would enjoy again and again. Thanks.
