Plot:

When jumpsuit-wearing serial killers in Leatherface-style masks have finished their latest unprovoked rampage through the New Mexico desert, the incompetent local sheriff and his men call in help from the Feds (Pullmann and Ormond). Taking over the investigation and impressing everyone with a beta-max era CCTV system, they start to interview each suspect and witness in turn to reveal (painstakingly slowly) a simple picture of what happened.

 
So, how does it end?

No surprises here. The agents are the two serial killers (they found the Feds in a motel room, killed them and stole their stuff).  Doesn't explain how they know to work the CCTV cameras - or even why bother at all.

So, they interview everyone, and then murder all the suspects and cops in the station, just leaving behind the newly-orphaned girl to make her way in life. How nice of them.

 
Notes
I'm annoyed at the critic who lied to me and gave it 4 stars. The only reason it gains a point here is that at least the producers managed to get big names for the lead roles. Well, big names if we were back in the 90s.
