Night Terror

Punch the gas and don’t look back.

Six years after Duel set the standard for the genre, Valerie Harper joins the “being chased by a psycho on the open road” club in this fun 1977 TV movie.

This time out, our heroine witnesses a police officer gunned down on a dark and desolate stretch of highway, then is pursued by the remorseless killer.

Played by Richard Romanus, the bad guy is extra-creepy, the kind of dude who terrorizes greasy spoon waitresses in his spare time, and speaks through a voice box for that added WTF effect.

Buckle up, folks.
