The Lerolland's family vacation turns into a nightmare when a mischievous car gang stalks them at high speed for apparently no reason, other than the gang's leader, Cliff, is a bit mentally unbalanced and will do anything for a thrill. The "mischeif" goes too far and turns deadly. The plot has as many twists and turns as the highway in this film. You never know what will happen next. What does happen is always shocking. When the heroic head of the Lerolland family and Cliff meet, "head on", be prepared for one of the coolest film finales ever...it's definately rewind worthy! If you are a Craig Sheffer fan, as I am, you know that no one delivers "crazy" better than Sheffer! His portrayal of "Cliff" gives a whole new meaning to the word psychotic. He will make your skin crawl! His pursuit of The Lerolland's is merciless. I find Sheffer to be a very under rated actor these days. He has portrayed a vast range of characters and makes them quite believable. "Cliff" is one of my favorite Sheffer characters, and is played to creepy and absolutely terrifying perfection! Lambert is excellent, as always, as Jack Lerolland, the man who goes to extraordinary lengths to save his family. I loved the way Lambert portrays "Jack", as both sensitive and strong. He is an apt adversary for the demented "Cliff". The screen chemistry between the two is superb! I also enjoyed discovering a young Joseph Gordon Levitt(best known as "Tommy" on "Third Rock from the Sun"). Levitt proves that he can do more than make you laugh...he will break your heart as Richie. I really enjoyed this movie. Not only because two of my favorite actors are in it. Because it is loaded with non stop action and excitement, and will make you feel as if you are behind the wheel with The Lerolland's!

This movie is really pretty typical. A family gets terrorized by bad guys. A lot of people get shot or have their heads bashed in. It's nothing that hasn't been done before. It probably only deserves about 2 stars, but I gave it an extra one because I like Christopher Lambert. The movie isn't bad though. If you don't mind a lot of violence in movies, then it's worth watching.

Writer Tedi Sarafian and director/brother Deran were awake in lit class, for their film "The Road Killers" filches from two classic American stories: "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" by Joyce Carol Oates and "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" by Flannery O'Connor. The Sarafians, though, do not have the skill to interweave the horror of those two works into an effective whole.

In the opening scene, we meet 16-year-old Ashley (Alexondra Lee), a sullen, disrespectful teenager. When her family's car overheats on a desolate highway, Ashley stretches her legs--with nothing between the bottom of her bare ass and the cowboy boots on her feet but a few threads dangling from her cutoff shorts. Her style and demeanor indicate that she is learning to own her sexual power, making her a perfect clone of Connie from Oates's story. And like Connie, Ashley attracts her own psychopathic admirer when, at a roadside diner, she escapes to the bathroom and discovers Cliff (Craig Sheffer) peeing at the urinal. After a brief flirtation while Ashley applies lipstick, Cliff says, "If I did what I feel like doing, you'd slap my face and run out of here screaming," reminiscent--though wordier and less effective--of the threat Connie gets from Arnold Friend: "Gonna get you, baby."

Unlike Connie who deals with Arnold Friend alone, Ashley has her family along as they are traveling by car caravan to San Diego. So now the Sarafians fold in elements from "A Good Man Is Hard to Find," which chronicles a family road trip gone horribly wrong. In the O'Connor story, the grandmother inadvertently causes her family to cross paths with the Misfit, a dangerous escaped convict who murders them all.

Young Richie is nearly killed 5 minutes in by Redneck Bon Jovi's (Cliff's) El Dorado. Later, at the diner ahead, Ashley flirts with Cliff, not knowing what a psycho he really is. Richie's father Glen confronts Cliff, who throws a chicken in his car window. Then, quite poetically (NOT), they play chicken. Glen is killed in the ensuing car wreck. Cliff's gang of flunkies includes a young David Arquette, playing the borderline-retarded Bobby. Cliff provides a few sarcastic tender moments. Hoo boy. This one runs out of gas fairly early on.
