Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 30-minute Ballyhoo Baby examines the correlation between sex tension and violence. We first see a young couple, travelling by car. The couple stops to pick up an innocuous-looking young hitchhiker. Within minutes, the new passenger has fomented sexual tension between his hosts. The results are horrifying-and better seen than described.
