An inscrutably ominous, seemingly driver-less sedan zooms around the back roads of Arizona, abducting young girls, including the daughter (Marcie Leeds) of town newcomer Joanna Cassidy.

This leads to a dusty demolition derby that is strictly low octane. Besides numerous continuity problems (for example, sunglasses and sun roofs disappear from one shot to the next), there's the fact that Cassidy behind the wheel in high-speed pursuit of the villainmobile is the most scarily inept looking driver on the tube since Mr. T chauffeured the van for the A-Team.
