Masters of Horror: Pick Me Up Movie Review

Larry Cohen directs this episode about a bus that breaks down in the woods and the passengers become victims of two different serial killers--Wheeler (Michael Moriarty) and Walker (Warren Kole)--on a collision course with each other. At about 55 minutes long it drags a bit--it would have been much better at just 40-45 minutes. Moriarty's acting is pretty lousy and quite irritating. Walker is a much more interesting character and Kole is a better actor. It does have some intense scenes and the last fifteen minutes of the episode are rather good. Plus, Fairuza Balk (The Craft, American History X) is in this one, which only adds to my enjoyment.

She's still the weirdo

I don't want to give too much away, but the ending I believe is a nod to a classic from the early 80's. I recommend this one.
