Synopsis

A lady advertising executive finds herself in a smalltown jail after being terrorized on a drive from Los Angeles to New York by two hitchhikers who steal her car and leave her unconscious by the roadside. She becomes a fugitive after killing her jailer during a rape attempt and breaking out with one of the hitchhikers who could prove her innocence. This is the same story, with a twist, as the unexpectedly successful "Jackson County Jail" (1976), also with Yvette Mimieux and the same technical crew headed by director Michael Miller, with much of the footage from that film telescoped to set up the premise for the new one.
