4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, April 6, 2011
This review is from: Road Kill (Fangoria FrightFest) (DVD)
If you want the usual film about teens killed off one by one, this isn't for you. This is a very surreal film that will appeal more to fans of 70s fare like "Let's Scare Jessica to Death" than it will to the "Saw" crowd. It also takes a bit of thought to follow (no, as opposed to what most critics think, the guy with the gun wasn't possessed by the truck -- later events prove otherwise). And, no, the characters do not act in an inexplicably stupid manner -- other than doing something people who've watch Spielberg's "Duel" would think twice about, strange behaviour is part of the plot. There's a couple of weak spots: I thought the gore took away from the effectiveness of this film, and I doubt so many could pick up how to drive a road train so easily. But the beautiful cinematography, great performances and effective mood make up for most of the weaknesses
