Film Review - Freeway
My God, how did this piece of crap get made? (I guess you can guess real early that I didn't like this one.)
Freeway is a bad example of film noir. No one in this flick is Mr. Goody Two Shoes. The plot is a twisted Red Riding Hood. Red is trailer trash who's headed for Grandma's house because Mother just got picked up hooking, and Stepdad is getting high while violating parole. (Which part of this movie am I supposed to be identifying with?)
On the way to Grandma's, Red's stolen car breaks down, and she gets picked up by the big bad wolf. Red fills him with lead, but he doesn't quite die. Now Red gets tossed in jail for attempted murder, where she gets to beat up women.
She busts out of jail and gets to Grandma's (yes, Grandma lives in a trailer.) The big bad wolf has already gotten there, bumped off the old lady, and is in her clothes, in her bed waiting for Red. This time Red does a better job killing him.
If you really want to torture someone, tie them to a chair, glue their eyelids open and make them watch this trash.
