Highway To Hell is not your typical B movie, it's actually a decent movie that entertains the viewer 'til the very end. Charlie (Chad Lowe) and Rachel (Kristy Swanson) are two young lovers eloping to Vegas. However the romantic adventure ends on a lonely road when Rachel is kidnapped by a hell cop and taken to Hell. Now Charlie must fight his fears and temptations in order to save her from becoming a bride of Satan.
This is simply a great movie, the main actors are top-notch with tons of wonderful cameos by Lita Ford, Gilbert Gottfried, and the entire Stiller family. There are a lot of hey it's that guy type of actors in the film as well including Patrick Bergin, Jarrett Lennon, Adam Storke, and Richard Farnsworth that round out the cast.
This movie is a lost classic that only a few who are lucky to stumble upon can experience it's '90s goodness. The true shame of how under appreciated this is that it has a great soundtrack but no way to find it. If you see this movie, watch it, it won't disappoint.
Awful, boring, waste of my time and money. There are so many ways to describe this awful piece or drivel that there is not enough room in this blog to contain it all. This 2007 "thriller" stars Lindsay Lohan.
Lindsay plays typical high-schooler Aubrey Fleming who is kidnapped and tortured by a mysterious stranger. She is found in a ditch weeks later but insists she is not Aubrey but is Dakota Moss a stripper. As her family tries to convince her that she is Aubrey, Dakota tries to find the real Aubrey who she senses is alive.
Even though I have been greatly disappointed by Mrs. Lohan's two previous films (Just My Luck and Georgia Rule) I still wanted to see this flick. Partially due to the fact it was filmed in a nearby town but also due to the addition of Jessica Rose a.k.a. internet phenomenon lonelygirl15.
The worst part of this film was that they had a great idea but sacrificed plot for "intense" scenes full of "stunning imagery" The ending is short and abrupt with no follow-up, what you can't even tack on an ending explaining the fates of the remaining characters?
Here's hoping rehab will cure Lohan enough to accept more coherent scripts and less of this garbage.
