This one is odd, is it named Night Terror (1977) or Night Drive, Googling finds both? The guide with my television provider says Night Drive, but the tile is Night Terror as is the opening title screen, and Amazon lists it as Night Drive, too. Either way, I was impressed that MGM-HD showed it. I remember seeing it when I was a kid, well bits of it, like the guy with the voice modulator.
Made for TV movies always hold back on what they show, and this is no different. This movie, though, has great thrills and drama. There are things that happen in this movie that make little sense, like her stopping and having a conversation with a drunk dude, then she decides to walk along the highway; um, there’s a dude following you in a car, how far do you think you’re gonna get?
Valerie Harper has always had a special place in my heart since I was a kid because I loved her as Rhoda in the TV series of the same name and the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Seeing her in a different role was very cool.
All in all, I thought Night Terror was a fun movie, with twists and slow turns, trying to keep me on the edge of my seat.
I give it 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
