A gripping horror film, ‘Expressway to Your Skull’, follows Ed and Amy, a thrill-seeking couple in their 20s as they steal away from the city to the backwoods for a spur-of-the-moment camping trip to cut loose and “expand their minds”. With a stash of drugs, backpacks and half-cocked enthusiasm Ed and Amy hit the road… But soon the couple cross paths with a mysterious survivalist named Charlie.
