Quicksilver Highway is a compilation of two stories; one by Stephen King and the second one by Clive Barker. So, we basically have short story adaptations from the two most popular modern horror authors in the world. How can this go wrong? Well, Mick Garris is directing. He’s known for pulling miracles with small budgets, but most of his work has a made for TV look and feel and it's a problem.
This means we get grade B actors, special effects, sets, costumes, editing, and a general sense that this was shot quickly. Make no mistake; Quicksilver Highway is still better than most horror anthology movies out there. It is the ambiance that is unappealing. The humor is odd. The score is cheap and certainly not tense and scary, as it should be.
The wraparound story features a creepy Christopher Lloyd telling two horror tales. The first one is about a man who picks up a hitchhiker and soon regrets it. Story two is about another man whose hands rebel against him. Both segments are interesting but not excellent. The first one is very creative but the second one reminds us of things we’ve seen a millions times in horror movies.
