Married but constantly quarrelling couple Walter (Franco Nero) and Eve (Corrine Clery) go on a camping trip, and as the outcome of one of their arguments, they pick up a hitchhiker, Adam (David Hess) - who soon enough turns out to be a criminal on the run and a dangerous psychopath, who threatens them with his gun, humiliates them any which way he can, and promises them rape and murder. Then though he has a sudden change of heart: To get his 15 minutes of fame, he wants to take Walter, who is a journalist, with him to Mexico to write his story.

Still, he hasn't given up the idea of raping Eve when ... he's suddenly shot from behind by his two accomplices Oaks (John Loffredo) and Hawk (Carlo Puri), whom he tricked out of the loot - a whopping 2 million Dollars - after their last heist. However, it's pretty much out of the fire and into the frying pan for Walter and Eve, as they are now forced by Oaks and Hawk to take them over the border.

Walter and Eve are saved again, but again, things don't turn to the better, since their saviour is none other than Adam, whom Oaks and Hawk failed to properly kill, which is why he now kills them - properly.

Adam is now more dangerous than ever, and finally he makes his promise come true and rapes Eve - before tied up Walter's very eyes. Eve pretends to enjoy it, and lures Adam back into the trailer for more sex, while she leaves Walter with an opportunity to free himself.

After sex, Adam and Walter get into a fight, and it seems that Adam is gaining the upper hand - when Eve shoots him with a gun they kept in the trailer.

Eve wants to report everything to the police, but Walter dissuades her from doing so - as they still have Adam's 2 million Dollars, and Walter is planning on keeping the money which would leave them independently rich. But then they are attacked by a gang of bikers after Walter's wallet and forced into an accident. They steal Walter's wallet but are of course completely oblivious to the fortune in a suitcase on the back seat.

Walter has survived the accident unscathed, but Eve is badly injured and stuck in the wreck - and she pleads Walter to help her ... but he prefers to pour gasoline over the wreck and set it on fire, with Adam's corpse doubling for his own. Then he makes off with the money.


Great piece of terror cinema that's blunt without being superficial, violent without being gratuitously brutal, and a fine piece of genre cinema without being formulaic. An intelligent screenplay that features many an unexpected plottwist of course helps, so does expert pacing and some great performances.

Recommended, actually.
