Freeway Maniac (1989)

Kinda surprised this didn't show up when using the search option. Anyway, I got around watching this again today (after many years) and all I can say is "wow".
This movie is a trip: the killer who was locked away in a mental institution as a child knows how to drive cars and trucks when he escapes decades later. He's also an expert in the arts of fist-fighting (he basically brawls and punches everyone) and loves to use his victims as air bags when falling from a tower, or as a cushion to lean on when roasting food over open fire.
This slasher is cheesy as hell and has a great soundtrack, decent stunts and 50/50 off-screen kills. The script ain't too stupid as it's making fun of low budget movies while tossing out a few references as well. The ending is a riot, and the very ending (leaving door open for sequel) made me giggle throughout the end credits.
I'd buy this on Blu-ray (or DVD) in a heartbeat.

It's out on a decent DVD in France but it's only got French audio.
It's released under the title "Breakdown".

At the very beginning when it shows that classic car, just love that cool guitar music!

Just watched this off YouTube and it's great! Kinda reminds me of Home Sweet Home. I'm all over owning the VHS!
