Two men meet in a diner on a desert highway--an uptight, reserved motorist (Lance Henriksen) and an overbearing, insistent hitchhiker (Eric Roberts). A dangerous balance results when it becomes clear that one of the two is a serial killer known in the media as "The Hatchet Man," while the other is a fugitive who has robbed a casino. With two capable actors and plenty of tension, it is slowly revealed which one is which.

Eric Roberts is unbelievable in this suspense thriller....This is why Mickey Rourke and Johnny Depp claim Roberts as the best actor of his generation....Excellent suspense movie and even though Roberts steals the show, Lance Henriksen does a fantastic job also...The atmosphere in this movie is also very cool
