The sun drenched days of summer turn dark and ominous for hitchhiking duo Jack and Véronique when they become inexplicably entangled with a mysterious married couple and a local road kill collector in rural France.
Joséphine de La Baume,
In the near future, a teenage couple are trapped in a drive-in theater which has become a concentration camp for social outcasts. The inmates are treated to drugs, exploitation films, junk food, and new wave music.

Pat Quid is driving a semi across Australia. On the way he encounters various other travellers and the occasional hitchhikers repeatedly as they're traveling the same road. A favorite pastime of Pat is to play games to pass the time on the journey (such as to make up backgrounds of the other people on the road). Pamela is one hitchhiker he picks up. But when she disappears, he suspects that the driver of a van who has been acting a little strange (Smith or Jones), may be the serial killer mentioned on the radio. But his pursuit of the van driver brings him to the attention of the police, who begin to suspect him.Written by

The American distributors wanted Richard Franklin to cut the 360 degree pan shot of Quid talking on the phone in the roadhouse. They felt the shot was too long and added nothing to the story. Franklin, however, refused to cut the shot. See more »
At the beginning when Keach passes the car towing the boat, he says "I'm on your port side." The nautical term port refers to the left side, but since drivers drive on the left side of the road in Australia he is actually on the starboard, or left, side. See more »

But just the same, like Cherry Falls, I found myself irresistibly drawn back to it time and again the other night. Keach is an American truck driver down under, Curtis (looking pretty darn good) a coy rich kid on the run. Some of the plot is just plain stupid or unbelievable, and Keach's talking to and otherwise entertaining himself while solo on the road goes beyond annoying and into the next category, but there's chemistry between Keach and Curtis that goes above all that in the end (barely). Better than watching a test pattern for those old enough to know what that is.
