Hell's Highway (2002)

How bad is it? Parts are laughably done, but it's a decent splatter film.
Should you see it? Perhaps, but not as a so-bad-it's-good film.

This one's hard to review, because it looks like much of the cheapness and tackiness is intentional and it sort of works. Scream queen Phoebe Dollar stars, along with porn stars Beverly Lynne and Ron Jeremy (in an in-joke cameo), in a film about teenagers getting killed off by a hitch-hiking woman. At one point, obvious toy buildings and cars are supposed to be real. The science fiction ending is a complete waste. The gore is very poorly done, especially the priest losing his head. The acting is bad enough that you can sometimes see actors trying not to smile. The problem is: all that cheap silliness seems to be planned.
