Peter (Henry Thomas) and Mary Jackson (Annabeth Gish) make the mistake of traveling on a desolate stretch of Interstate 50 on a cross country trip in his sister’s car and their unease when they near the deserted mining town of Desperation, Nevada, is intensified when they are pulled over by police officer Collie Entragian (Ron Perlman) who discovers a bag of marijuana which they were not aware was in the trunk. Their suspicion that something is a little “off” with Entragian is confirmed when they are taken to Desperation and imprisoned with other travelers, David (Shane Haboucha), Ellie (Sylva Kelegian), and Ralph (Matt Frewer) Carver, Steve Ames (Steven Weber), John Marinville (Tom Skerritt), and Cynthia Smith (Kelly Overton). An ancient evil force has unwittingly been let loose from its imprisonment in the mine and it is up to the group to destroy it before it is able to leave the town.
