Suspense / Thriller
Directed by James Landis
Cast: Arch Hall Jr., Richard Alden and Marilyn Manning
Three people driving into Los Angeles for a Dodgers game have car trouble and pull off into an old wrecking yard where they are held at bay by a bloodthirsty psycho and his crazy girlfriend.
This plot is simple but strong. Three teachers on the way to an L. A. Dodgers game have car trouble and pull into a house/car garage on the side of the road. They search for help but the place seems to be abandoned. However, there is a warm pie and uneaten food on the kitchen table of the house. Something is definitely amiss and all three teachers are feeling somewhat uncomfortable when suddenly they find out they aren’t so alone after all. A cackling Charlie Tibb (Arch Hall Jr.) and his twisted Lolita of a girlfriend (Marilyn Manning) creep out of the graveyard of abandoned cars and take the situation into their control.
