FANGORIA MEETS A ROAD TRAIN

ROAD KILL
 
Young people in horror movies have been around forever, there have also been some crazy trucker movies. So what would happen when the two come together, well this movie is that answer. Now I know you are saying this type of movie has been done before, well not like this really. I want to tell you what the deal is here but that would give so much away.
 
“Road Kill” or “Road Train” as it was originally called follows a group of friends on the road, of course. All is well until a road train runs them off of the road; a road train is a truck hauling two large trailers. When they all regroup after their crash they notice the truck has stopped up the road. Of course youngn’s always think they are indestructible so they head up to it. What for you may ask, well to give the driver what for of course. Once there they realize the driver is gone, but only for a brief moment as the driver comes back shooting. They dive into the truck and take off getting away from the truck driver, but all is not what it seems. They one by one start to fall asleep including the driver, but they wake up fine in the middle of nowhere. How did they get there and what could be going on inside this road train?
 
I have to say that I liked the story behind this film since it turns out to be more than what you would expect. In fact the villain here is not who you first believe it to be, in the end it turns out kinda cool. But the thing that bothers me about this flick is that the acting is not up to par with some of the actors. Also the story can be a little out there but for a guy that watches SyFy channel movies all the time I thought it was good.
 
The best way I can describe this flick is by saying it is a cross between “Maximum Overdrive” and “Christine”. I know what you are going to say, both of those are about vehicles that come to life. Well not really when you think about it and if you watch this flick you will most likely catch on to what I am saying. My brother pointed it out to me so I am sure you will get it. Any way this flick is about friends that are just young, dumb, and you know the rest. Plus a truck [SPOILER] that runs on blood, so the flick is ok minus some acting. The DVD has a commentary track and the trailers for the other Fangoria Fright Fest films.
