Gianennio Salucci delivers an action-packed mystery drama for Riotron's Dark Highway, where Riotron (Eighties-imbibed alter-ego of Canadian jeff Fettes) attempts to outrun his past, and the storm that is gathering...

Combining numerous tropes from Eighties films - including touches of Hanna Barbera-style animation - Salucci delivers a mind-boggling adventure featuring car chases, dance routines, and some sheer David Lynch-style weirdness.

DoP Bryant Jansen's neon-hued aesthetic is complemented by otherworldly animation and visual effects, and the overall effect is mesmerizing - even if it's not exactly clear what it all means.
