"Outside Ozona" is a 1998 American independent film directed by J.S. Cardone. The movie brings together a compelling cast of stars, including Robert Forster, Kevin Pollak, and Sherilyn Fenn, in a small Texas town. The film is a thriller-drama that brings together numerous lives through a late-night radio show. The plot revolves around a serial killer who is wreaking havoc in West Texas. The film premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival, where it received critical acclaim.

Everyone's fate seems to be connected to the radio station just outside the town of Ozona, Texas. A late-night disc jockey known as "The Voice" (played by Penelope Ann Miller) is the only person keeping her town awake with her show, which plays good country music and takes calls from her listeners. One night, while she's on air, The Voice receives a call from a charming truck driver, played by Kevin Pollak. His charm and flattering words soon turn sour when The Voice discovers that he is a serial killer.

Meanwhile, Robert Forster plays a one-armed traveling salesman who spends his nights in hotel rooms talking to the radio. He takes a detour from his usual schedule when fate puts him in the path of the truck driver, and they become reluctant partners on a journey as chaos follows them.

Elsewhere in the town, Sherilyn Fenn plays a woman who is on a journey to find closure following the death of her husband. Her story intertwines with that of the serial killer.

The film tells a beautifully woven story of people whose lives cross paths with a killer who is on the loose. Everyone's fate is connected in this small Texas town, and the film aptly portrays the events that unfold as the characters' paths collide.

The cast delivers excellent performances throughout the film. Robert Forster, in particular, brings his usual gravitas to his character, portraying a one-armed salesman on a journey of self-discovery. Kevin Pollak is excellent as the charming killer, playing his role with just the right amount of menace and vulnerability. Sherilyn Fenn plays a woman on a journey of self-discovery, and her character's growth is showcased beautifully throughout the film.

The film is shot with a certain grace that lends it an air of authenticity. The cinematography brings out the vastness of the West Texas landscape, and the scenes are perfectly captured to reflect the small-town atmosphere. The music stands out and plays an essential role in the narrative, with the radio show accompanying and providing a backdrop to the events that unfold.
