There’s a killer on the road…and on the radio, in the crazed 1988 thriller Freeway, starring the oh-so-Eighties VHS-friendly cast of James Russo (Boy Wonder), Darlanne Fluegel (Running Scared), Richard Belzer (Scarface) and the deliriously inimitable Billy Drago (The Untouchables)!

Billy Drago in Freeway

There are 600 miles of freeway in Los Angeles. Every night, millions of angry motorists speed through its asphalt maze. Some of them have guns. One of them enjoys killing people. Now a traumatized ER nurse (Fluegel), an acerbic talk-radio host (Belzer) and a stranger with a dark secret (Russo) must join to stop the bible-quoting madman (Drago) who has promised the panicked city one final fast lane massacre.

The beloved Roy Clark (TV’s Hee Haw) and Clint Howard (The Wraith) co-star in this suspense thriller co-written and directed by TV and music video veteran Francis Delia (TV’s Crime Story).

Blu-ray extras include an interview with Delia and trailers.
