Rating: 2.5/4 -- The first hour of Road Games is so expertly assembled that it's downright tragic when the picture spins out of control during the second half. Full Review
3 stars out of 5 -- DEATH PROOF eat your heart out: this grindhouse-inspired cat-and-mouse road movie has rugged charm by the truckload.
...Stacy Keach's characterization of the amusing poetry-spouting man is particularly endearing...
Rating: B -- Under the radar Hitchcock influenced thriller is a road version of Rear Window. Full Review

Yanks and dingos and psychos in the Outback Full Review
A suspenseful thriller about a truck driver's efforts to stop a demented murderer. Pat Quid has been hired to deliver pork to Perth, Australia. Keeping him company on the road is his pet dog, who Pat claims is a dingo. After hearing about a killing spree, whose culprit remains unknown, Pat starts to believe the fiend is actually the mysterious driver of a green van he passed along the way. When the police don't believe the story, Pat decides to nab the villain on his own. After the maniac kidnaps Pamela, the pretty hitchhiker Pat picked up, the truck driver becomes even more determined to stop the madman.
