Like its title, Roadkill is a little flat and moldy at times, but generally effective. Concert promoter Valerie Buhagiar decides to look for a legendary "lost" band called The Children of Paradise, in hopes of staging a lucrative comeback tour. Buhagiar's odyssey takes her through the backroads of Canada. En route, she stumbles upon a thrill killer-and he's one of the more normal people that she meets. Director Bruce McDonald doubles as one of the film's stars.
