Linda Kenney (Loren Winters) is attacked by escaped psycho-killer Arthur (James Courtney) and is instrumental in getting him locked up again. But he escapes a second time and comes after her on the set of a science-fiction horror film she's gottne a part in. Notwithstanding the chainsaw

imagery on the video rental box, THE FREEWAY MANIAC pays only a token nod to the slasher genre and concentrates instead on satirizing the making of low-budget horror films. Encumbered with an insipid script and an infinitesimal budget, however, THE FREEWAY MANIAC soon sinks to the level of its

target. Suspense is negated by the insufficient footage and sloppy editing. In the climactic battle, the combatants are so obscured by orange smoke and a gliding camera boom that it becomes next to impossible to determine their identities or fates. The actors can shed no light on the situation,

and give indifferent performances in their ill-written roles. James Courtney is especially lost in a part that requires him to be a symbol of evil without personality.
