Movie Info

Some demented van driver is swerving around and about, killing female motorists. This being Los Angeles, Shelley has at least a million suspects-daily-to choose from. This otherwise standard thriller is pepped up by the presence of several TV veterans, including George Hamilton, Frank Gorshin, Peter

Audience Reviews for Death Car on the Freeway

I caught the second half of this on a cheap and cheerful freeview movie channel and was surprised to find myself sucked into it. It's certainly silly, dated and sexist - at one point Peter Graves' police detective, investigating a series of homicides in which female motorists have been forced off the road by a maniac driving a van, suggests that the victims may be partly responsible for their own deaths because they each have a string of minor driving offences to their discredit - but it does have some tense moments, at least one nifty little sucker punch and a surprisingly potent atmosphere of dread. Notwithstanding the high quality of the stunt work for a TV movie, I'd certainly never have guessed this was directed by Hal Needham, making me almost curious enough to investigate what else this director was capable of without Burt Reynolds...
