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).

Unique horror/comedy/fantasy flick.

I remember seeing this on a rented VHS during the early 90s. An underrated and underviewed movie that deserves more attention. The movie does really well at presenting hell for an obviously low budget. You get the feeling you are in another world. There is plenty of action and comedy. There are tons of hilarious lines and scenes throughout the entire film. The creatures are fabulous, especially the she-demon that disguises herself as the girlfriend. The film features actor Ben Stiller, his sister Amy Stiller and their parents, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara.

The movie moves with a good forward pace and respectable amount of energy. The FX and soundtrack are pretty good. The desert locations are used to great advantage. The acting is totally acceptable. The story moves along at a rapid pace, and the imaginative script constantly surprises.
