Full Plot

Jack meets Adrian out in Nevada. Adrian latches on to Jack, and won't go away. Jack tries to lose Adrian, but Adrian informs Jack not to mess with him, or he'll call the police because he knows Jack's secret. In the meantime, the car radio keeps blaring news reports of a serial killer in the area called "The Hatchet Man", as well as a theft of a huge sum of money from a local casino. Jack is concealing a briefcase, and wherever he and Adrian go, "The Hatchet Man" seems to strike within the vicinity! Humberto Amador Plot not found

Adrian: There's two places they send people who are havin' too good a time. One's church, the other's prison. And I done time in both, Jack. Adrian: You can't kill the devil, Jack. Jack Powell: How the hell did you get dumped in the middle of nowhere? Adrian: A fella' in a big rig picked me up, about where you passed me. But he got a little too devoted, you know what I mean? Jack Powell: So you got out? Adrian: Looks that way. Adrian: The fella' in the fancy suit must have a name. Jack Powell: Jack. Adrian: You know, Jack? I can usually tell in about two minutes all I need to know about a person. Jack Powell: Like what? Adrian: Like is he a loser? Does he shoot dope? Does he like to wear ladies' underwear? Jack Powell: Are you telling me that you're a psychic, or that you like to look at people's pants? Adrian: You're a funny guy, Jack. Adrian: Now you just sit tight a minute while I go right a wrong. Adrian: I figured you'd be long gone by now. You must've lost your appetite in a big hurry, huh? I'd hate to think it's 'cause you didn't like me, Jack. I mean, you can see what an unfriendly place the world can be. Jack Powell: What are you doing? Adrian: I got no place to sleep, Jack. Jack Powell: You're crazy. Adrian: I'll tell on ya, Jack. I'll tell everyone what you got in that briefcase. Don't worry. I'm a man with a secret too myself.
