Highway to Hell (1992) is a movie I would’ve expected from 1983 or 1987, reminding me of some of my favorite post-apocalyptic films like Cherry 2000 (1987) or Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983), or even any of the original three Mad Max movies. The soundtracks are even similar as is the location. Hidden Faces (Frank Fitzpatrick) is responsible for the music, and it’s more 80s than 90s, but then again it was 1992.
This one tells the tale of Charlie and Rachel who are running to elope in Las Vegas, and they find misadventure along the way; Rachel is taken to Hell to be a bride of Satan. Along the way they meet up with many zany characters; the cameos are great. I’m not sure how this movie made it into the horror genre.
There aren’t many movies that they didn’t steal from when they made this. Everything from the aforementioned Mad Max to Back to the Future. I didn’t mind, Highway to Hell is a kick the pants and well worth your attention if you come across it.
Even though I really don’t consider it horror, I’ll still give it 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
