Chance events trap a hitch-hiker Al Roberts into a tightening net of trouble.
Wonderful Film Noir classic that creates a hopeless fate almost too extreme to believe, but that's just as well part of its message.
Halliwell*: "A minor cult movie with as much doomladen dialogue and film noir angles as could be shovelled into a Poverty Row 'B' at the time. On the whole, less than meets the eye."
Maltin***: "Now-legendary B movie, filmed in less than a week, is the qintessence of film noir...(Savage, in an unforgettable performance), Ulmer makes best of his meagre budget."
