Little Red Riding Hood for the 1990's: After her mom and step-dad are arrested, 15-year-old Vanessa Lutz decides that instead of once again being put into a foster home, she'd rather go and search for the grandmother she's never met, and live with her. On the way to grandma's house, (actually a trailer park) Vanessa's car breaks down, and she's picked up from the side of the road by Bob Wolverton, a counselor at a school for troubled boys. Bob slowly earns Vanessa's trust, and eventually convinces her to talk about her sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather. When Vanessa realizes that Bob is enjoying what she's saying, she realizes that he's The I-5 Killer, from the news. She tries to get out of his truck, but the inside door handle has been removed..

  • Like it or hate it (or both), you have to admire its skill, and the over the top virtuosity of Reese Witherspoon and Kiefer Sutherland. ( Read More )
  • E Film Critic

    One of the most stubbornly original and electrifying films not only of 1996, but of the 90s, period. ( Read More )
  • If youre into despicable trash that is completely without redeeming value, Freeway is for you. ( Read More )
  • Q Network

    Freeway is not good satire, its not good comedy, and its not in the least bit entertaining. ( Read More )
  • Calendar Live

    Its too drawn out, too talky and, at the most crucial moment, needlessly implausible, to sustain its humor and large dose of violence. ( Read More )
