    Amy Martin (Claudia Christian), an attractive married woman and a member of the 'Country Club Tennis Set', is being neglected by her workaholic doctor husband, Jerry (Corbin Bernsen). Lonely and insecure, Amy foolishly falls for the seductive charms of a much younger man, Steve Sterns (Nicholas Celozzi) who is introduced to Amy by her good friend, Sheila. The love affair is very brief, as she realizes that Steve has a dark, sinister and obsessive side to his personality, or is it personalities? Amy tries to break off the relationship, only to find that her adulterous lover has become her stalker. She also fears that Steve is responsible for the numerous brutal murders of local prostitutes. Two policemen (Ron Perlman and 'James Van Patten') investigate Steve and also the killings of the prostitutes; but this does not stop Steve from becoming increasingly violent and murderous towards Amy. After the death of Amy's friend, Sheila, and the killing of her dog at the hands of Steve, the police still do not arrest him due to lack of evidence. Steve is now in a tormented state and kills his psychiatrist who knows about Steve's multiple personalities. He then attempts to murder Amy in a fit of rage at her house, only to die at the hands of Amy's stepdaughter, Milly ('Vanessa Lee Evigan'). Written by theperlmanpages

                Combining non-stop automotive thrills with the widescreen desert settings of David Lean, Standard 8 Releasing is in production on the landmark action adventure, �The Last Road Trip: Paris to Dakar.� The big screen epic will be the first of its kind, and will focus on several teams of bold adventurers who attempt to complete the world's most famous rally, a race followed passionately by several hundred million fans throughout Europe and Asia each year. The feature film will showcase spectacular cinematography punctuated by intense action, and the mystique of the Lone Rider in the desert as epitomized by racing compatriots Thierry Sabine and Hubert Auriol.

                The Paris to Dakar is the world's most famous rally. Fans from 156 countries tune in to view it every year, and automobile companies from the United States, Europe and Asia invest millions annually to compete. Founded in 1979 by Sabine after racing through the desert on a single motorcycle, the race has grown to include hundreds of entrants each year who compete by truck, car or motorcycle. Traditionally beginning the first week of January, the race continues over three weeks and 6,000 miles as the entire convoy idles through France and Spain before letting it rip across the desert sands of Morocco, Mali, Mauritania and Senegal. The exact route is constantly subject to change due to the intense volatility of the region, but somehow the violent threat of local mercenaries only adds to the rally's lore.
