Mary's husband gets relocated for work which allows her to move back to her suburban hometown. As her family ties up loose ends back home, Mary moves into their new house all alone and waits. Although her familiar suburb is a constant reminder of her youth, something seems strange. A local ice cream man with a love of nostalgia starts to kill some of her neighbors. Mary is torn between her mature instincts that something is wrong and the distracting memories of her younger days. "A smart, clever, and uncompromising old-school horror flick that's going to take viewers back to a better time in cinema." "Summertime suburban life is hot, banal, and deadly in this eccentric horror opus." "The Ice Cream Truck is the indie hit we all deserve."-Matt Molgaard, Addicted To Horror Movies Blu-ray Special Features: Outtakes, 'Making Murder' Featurette

So I can say first hand that what the director, Megan Freels Johnson, as well as the entire cast and crew achieved on such a minuscule budget was nothing short of a miracle.
The film quality looks like a 20 million dollar film in style and composition.
If you're expecting a fast paced, run of the mill slasher horror film, this isn't it, nor was it the intention of the writer/director. Instead, it's a poetic journey into the experiences of a woman who just moved back to her childhood neighborhood, while waiting for her husband and family to arrive from out of state.
Yes, it pays homage to David Lynch in the beautiful way it was filmed, as well as the deliberately methodical pace. But that was intentional, similar to the pace and main character in Lost In Translation, which also conveys the experiences of a person in a fish out of water realm of uneasiness, triggered by new and unfamiliar surroundings.
Deanna Russo's acting is spot on as a woman dealing with loneliness, boredom, the faded nostalgia of her teen years as well as the constant onslaught of awkward strangers and neighbors who repeatedly invade her fragile bubble of isolation.

Deanna Russo is gorgeous as usual and does a great job as Mary who has moved back to her hometown to start a new life with her husband and children. While waiting for them to arrive Mary meets the locals and starts to get close to one of the neighbourhood teens. Meanwhile a demented Ice Cream Man is cruising the streets.
This film really caught me off guard as its very deliberately paced with conversations purposefully awkward and plenty of sexual innuendos. Check this out and you may enjoy it as well but keep in mind this is not your typical horror film. 4/5 stars.
The characters were okay. This is a me too horror which was more drama about Mary than horror about the ice cream truck, but "What is it about Mary?" has been taken as a title. Not one Clint Howard joke. The small talk was bad. You could do worse. Not bad for an indie. Light on special effects.
