The eyes of Arch Hall Jr. assault as the narrator describes the SADIST.
3 teachers are heading to a ballgame when their car dies. They manage to pull into a gas station/junk yard. Unable to find the station
owner, they start looking a for a fuel pump in one of the junked cars. Carl Oliver, the old teacher, keeps looking for the owners but just
finds an abandoned dinner table.
Ed Stiles starts removing the fuel pump from a car. Doris just stands by, and Carl is thinking this is awfully strange.
When Arch Hall Jr. and his girlfriend, Judy, appear. Ed is to fix the car, and Arch will take it. Doris is automatically creeped out by
Arch’s maniacal laughter. Carl is robbed but mentions how they’re all teachers. Big mistake, Arch and Judy don’t cotton to teachers. Pistol
whips Carl because teachers made fun of Judy.
Arch takes Ed’s money while Doris tends to Carl. Doris whines about needing water for Carl. He finally lets her gets some water. While, they’re
gone, Ed realizes the teen couple must be the couple behind 7 killings in the past week.
Doris gets the water. Arch doesn’t appreciate being called inhuman, etc by Doris. Arch threatens and even cops a feel.
After getting back, Arch takes a few pot shots at the teachers top scare them. Arch will kill Carl after he finishes a pop and has him
plead for his life in the meanwhile. After the last swallow, Arch puts a cap in him better than Tommy Kirk did with Ole Yeller.
Ed holds Doris back. He gets back to working on the car. Doris accuses him of being a coward by not trying to save Carl. Finally, he gets
the fuel pump out and has to put it in the other car.
Doris is starting to act delusional. Ed starts trying to calculate how many shots are left in Arch’s pistol. Arch pops up flashing the extra
clips he has and even starts egging Ed to jump him. How many shots are left?
Hearing a motor approaching, Arch stuffs Ed in a car trunk and has Judy watch Doris. 2 motorcycle cops pull up and are greeted by Arch. Doris
struggles with Judy and cries for help. Arch perforates the police.
He demands that Ed fix the car or else.
Judy takes the cops’ wallets and everything else she can find.
Ed and Doris thinking running may be their only chance until Ed gets a better idea to try and run over Arch with the car. When Arch gets in
the car, Ed has to change his plan.
Arch and Judy play around and get out of the car. They watch Ed, and Dorothy starts the car. Our crazed psycho starts taunting Ed
again. Forcing Doris out of the car, he is sure that Doris is up to something. Arch knows more about cars than he’s been letting on. Ed is
to get some gas for the carburetor. Ed shoots some gas into Arch’s eyes. Judy shoots at Doris.
The blinded Arch shoots Judy and breaks down crying. Ed is chased by the truly angry deranged lunatic. Hide and seek among the junked
cars ensues. Doris hides in a shed and stumbles across the owners bodies causing her to scream.
Arch shoots at Judy who runs off. Ed manages to get him to chase him again.
Reaching a dead end at the garage, Ed is trapped when Arch tries shooting. The gun is empty. Ed rushes at Arch who grabs another of
the guns he’s carrying and shoots Ed. Arch shoots him half a dozen times to insure he’s good and dead.
Doris runs off down the valley. Arch hops in the car and drives after her, in the car that keeps stalling.
Grabbing his big pig sticker knife, Arch goes after Doris who reaches the burnt remnants of a house. More cat and mouse chase ensues. Arch
falls into a well and is bitten by several rattlesnakes.
Doris runs off.
Arch tries to climb out of the well but falls down. Finally, his screams end.
Doris gets to the car and walks away.
