Do not Sleep in the Highway to Hell

Charlie Sykes (Chad Lowe) and his girlfriend Rachel Clark (Kristy Swanson) are traveling to Las Vegas to secretly get married to each other. They decide to follow through a secondary road, and while fueling their car in "Sam's Last Chance" gas station, they are advised by the owner and attendant Sam (Richard Farnsworth) to not sleep after the second tree in the road. They fall asleep in the car, and a policeman arrests Rachel. Charlie returns to the gas station, and Sam tells him that she has been arrested by a Hellcop, and he has to go to hell if he wants to rescue his fiancée.

"Highway to Hell" is a gem underrated in IMDb. I have seen this cult-movie at least six times, and I really love it. I have an used VHS, and I do not know why this movie has never been released on DVD. The clumsy baby face hero Chad Lowe has a great adventure trying to bring his girlfriend back from Hell. The now famous Ben Stiller, in the beginning of his career, is very hilarious in the role of a cook, and also as Attila the Hun at the table with Hitler and Cleopatra. The special effects and the music score are very good and I really recommend this movie for fans of a trash and funny original adventure. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Estrada Para o Inferno" ("Highway to Hell")

Terrible Film

This is really a terrible film.

The script was too weak and the plot has no strong base at all. There was no suspense or twist in the story. Moreover it was full of unnecessary characters who actually has nothing to do with story. The characters had no definite purpose or consistency of any sort. Some of the characters were doing things which no sense a all,

The acting was hilarious, and most of the action scenes was quite lame and totally unprofessional. Even if one can endure the acting of the main characters but the acting of the side characters was a real eye sore.

Not recommended.

An imaginative but ultimately unfulfilling horror/fantasy.

Young lovers Charlie (Chad Lowe) and Rachel (Kristy Swanson) are en route to Vegas where they intend to get married, but are forced to postpone their nuptials when they take a shortcut down a dark back road that is patrolled by a devilish cop (C.J. Graham), who whisks Charlie's bride-to-be to Hell. With only 24 hours in which to save his betrothed, Charlie follows the hell-cop into the netherworld and encounters numerous strange obstacles…

From Ate De Jong, the director of Drop Dead Fred, Highway To Hell is an offbeat horror/fantasy movie so full of arbitrary action and random characters that it feels like a lot of it was made up on the fly whilst stoned (when, in fact, it was written by Brian Helgeland, who would later win an Oscar for his screenplay for L.A. Confidential). As such, the film has no doubt garnered a small but loyal cult following, although I found the whole thing to be just a little too scattershot for its own good, the somewhat aimless approach hindering my enjoyment of the film rather than helping it.

Decent visual effects (including a stop-motion Cerberus), effective SFX makeup (a female demon with saggy tits being my favourite creation), nice cinematography and fun cameos help matters (look out for a pre-fame Ben Stiller as both a diner cook and Attila the Hun, and sexy '80s rocker Lita Ford as a hitch-hiker), but when all is said and done, Highway to Hell isn't quite as rockin' as its title suggests (and no, the AC/DC song doesn't feature on the soundtrack).
