MASTERS OF HORROR: PICK ME UP (2005) ** ½

Director Larry (It’s Alive) Cohen takes a potentially interesting idea (two rival serial killers stalking the same woman on a deserted stretch of road) but drops the ball. This episode probably would have benefited from being an actual feature rather than an hour long TV show because if the characters (not to mention the ending) had been fleshed out and if it was actually suspenseful, it could’ve worked. Luckily the performances, especially Michael Moriarty (a veteran of several Cohen films, including A Return to Salem’s Lot) as the psycho truck driver and Fairuza (The Craft) Balk as the victim are excellent. Screenwriter David J. Schow also wrote The Crow.
