Cult Movie Essentials: The Gladiator (1986)

A homicidal maniac known as “Skull” is on the loose in Los Angeles (where else would he go!) and is killing motorists at random with his “death car”. The city is living in fear as soon Jeff (Brian Robbins) becomes his latest victim. Skull made one mistake though, Jeff had a brother named Rick Benton (played by Ken Wahl) and he is still alive! Jeff takes it upon himself to hunt down the reckless drivers that fill the streets at night as “The Gladiator” and hopes his quest will bring him face to face with Skull!

Being a master mechanic, Rick spends his time converting his pick-up truck into an armed and dangerous vehicle. With speed to take on the fastest car and strength to make sure in a one-on-one situation, he will be the only survivor.

The cops soon find out about the vigilante known only as the “Gladiator” and do all they can to catch him before his citizen’s arrests go one step too far…
