Overall ‚??Freeway‚?? is not a bad movie: the concept of some crazy priest going on a killing spree is interesting enough. The flow of the movie is not bad either. The plot follows a classic scenario: protagonist suffers from the loss of a loved one due to the actions of an as yet unknown killer. Given the incapability and unwillingness of the authorities to solve the case, protagonist decides to investigate him/herself, possibly with the help of some (anonymous) fellow sufferer. The inevitable final confrontation promises some real fireworks. In ‚??Freeway‚??, the tension builds up slowly. First we see some of the gruesome murders and the religious ranting and raving (live on the radio!) that drives the killer, without getting a full view of his face. As a result of this, we might at one point suspect the wrong person. The director also made good use of the suspense contained in the shots of seemingly endless highways and cars beginning to evoke associations of ferocious monsters. The eighties elements (neon lights, shadows of venetian blinds, fashion of the time) didn‚??t ruin the atmosphere either, believe it or not. The plot could have been more interesting, though, if the priest had had clearer motivations for his killings, no matter how misguided. I would have preferred to see victims that had turned out to be (morally) guilty in some way or other, instead of just randomly-chosen innocents. And why did Heller operate on highways only, and not in any other area if he thought it were best to kill everybody in the world? In addition, I thought the Quinn (James Russo) character might have been left out: the plot would have been strong enough if it had focused on Sunny (Darlanne Fluegel) alone. Quinn is neither very relevant, nor very agreeable, for that matter. While watching ‚??Freeway‚??, I wondered if the writer of the Inspector Morse episode ‚??Fat Chance‚?? (1991) had seen this movie, for this also contains a misguided, mentally disturbed priest who might have been responsible for someone‚??s death. And he also has a room full of ominous religious attributes. Coincidence or not?
