All I can remember is that its an 80's movie, probably mid 80's. I cant recall if it was a compilation style movie, like tales from the darkside... But I have a feeling it was. So this may have only been one "story" in the whole movie. Anyway, on to the little bit I remember. All I can see is a car that doesnt look very futuristic, in a setting that doesnt seem futuristic, but I think it's supposed to be in the future. The main guy driving the car is, like, a cop or detective or something. He is driving on a zero visibility, foggy, desolite road, and comes upon a road side, 50's-60's looking diner. I think he goes into the diner, and he thinks things are normal, even though it seems suspicious, and I think he even orders. Then something happens and reveals that the people in the diner are aliens or monsters or something, and the guy winds up shooting them or fighting to get away. Well, thats all I can remember since the last time I saw it... Whatever it was. At least 25 yrs ago, Haha. So I hope someone knows what the hell im talking about. Many thanx. : )

Sounds like the opening scene from Trancers (1985)

Haha, thanks a lot guys! TRANCERS was dead on. It's funny how we remember things from our youth, totally different than they actually are. I'm glad my description was enough, but the real thing was way cheesier than I remembered, lol. Thanks again.
