Description: A female is terribly jolted when she is run off the highway and almost murdered by an insane car-driver. Her tale is not really considered too significantly by TV or the cops – until different girl is murdered in matching conditions, also by a black car. The authorities appear to have no leads, so a TV newsman begins exploring the parallels between the cases. As the deaths attach, she provides hazard-driving lessons. When she lastly finds the driver’s location, he’s missing, but chases her onto the road… Starring Shelley Hack who also played in The Stepfather movie
Review: The enhancement that Death Car produces on other crazy road films is this: there is an Anchorwoman in Peril. Yes, Final Angel Shelley Hack turns to Final Girl as a newswoman combating sexism in the workplace additionally as a man in a car (the “Freeway Fiddler”!) is moving females off the highway to igneous deaths all over Los Angeles. Offering an alarming importance of feminist belief for a TV flick (pre-Lifetime, that is) and some discourse on the media and brutality that are still quite quick today, this movie bumps as it entertains, and looks EXCELLENT each step of the way.
