Synopsis

The peace­ful tran­quil­i­ty of a small Western town is dis­turbed when a mur­der­ous car wreaks hav­oc by vicious­ly mow­ing down inno­cent vic­tims. The new sher­iff, Wade Parent (James Brolin), may be the only one who can stop this men­ace in its tracks.  But what Wade Parent doesn’t real­ize is that the dri­ver of this inde­struc­tible vehi­cle is far more dan­ger­ous than any man… because it is dri­ven by pure evil.
