About The Turnpike Killer
In the city that never sleeps, a killer prowls the streets at night. Over a span of 10 years the butchered remains of New York City women have been found dumped along the New Jersey Turnpike. The sadistic fiend behind these horrid murders has been coined The Turnpike Killer. His search for the “chosen one” has left a seemingly endless trail of bloodshed and brutality. NYPD Homicide Detective Lloyd is on the job, but still The Turnpike Killer evades capture. Keep off the streets at night, stay out of the tunnels and avoid the bridges. You cannot escape him when all roads lead to death.
Bill McLaughlin is terrifying as the brutal Jon Beest, the madman known as The Turnpike Killer. Joined by a stellar cast that includes Edgar Moye (The Super) as Detective Lloyd, Demetri Kallas (The Super) as Father, Lyndsey Brown as Jennifer and horror icons Ruby LaRocca (The Lost) and Manoush (Barricade). The Turnpike Killer is sure to appease the bloodlust of hardcore fans of 1980s horror/exploitation.
