On a 1600 mile stretch of desert highway someone is playing a deadly game of sex, violence... and sudden death!
Stacy Keach is Pat Quid, a loan trucker who always plays games to keep his sanity on long hauls through the desolate Australian outback. Jamie Lee Curtis is a free - spirited hitchhiker looking for excitement with a game of her own. And somewhere up ahead, on the lonliest highway in the world, is a psychopathic killer - a latter day Jack the Ripper , whose game is picking up young female hitchhikers, raping, killing and dismembering them before burying their remains on the desolate Nullabor Plains. But when Quid's innocent curiosity turns into amateur sleuthing, the killer decides to raise the stakes... and the rules of this road take some very deadly turns. via Umbrella Entertainment
Synopsis:Pat Quid is driving a semi across Australia. On the way he encounters various other travellers, and the occasional hitchhikers repeatedly as they're traveling the same road. A favorite pastime of Pat is to play games to pass the time on the journey. (Such as to make up backgrounds of the other people on the road.) Pamela is one hitchhiker he picks up. But when she disappears, he suspects that the driver of a van who has been acting a little strange, (Smith or Jones) maybe the serial killer mentioned on the radio. But his pursuit of the van driver brings him to the attention of the police, who begin to suspect him.
