Editorial Reviews

Four young friends on a camping adventure are run off the road by an erratically driven road train - a massive three-trailer truck. With their own vehicle wrecked and the road train stopped, the friends march off to vent their anger at the driver. But the truck is empty. Suddenly, the silence is broken by the sound of gunshots. To escape, the friends commandeer the road train. What they discover inside the vehicle s trailers proves more terrifying than anything out there on that lonely road. The next town is only three hours away, but will they reach it?

This is my fifth FRIGHTFEST film and I must admit I'm disappointed in most of these films. Only PIG HUNT and DARK HOUSE have met my expectations. Considering films like DUEL, JOY RIDE, CHRISTINE and even MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE, ROAD KILL comes up short. There are mny incredulous things about this movie, but most irritating is that three untrained youths are able to drive a "road train."
The acting isn't bad considering the script and the inept direction. The girls were especially annoying.
I've only 3 left in the series but I'm in no hurry to see them!

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

I'll be honest: I bought this movie simply because I'm a fan of Bob Morley. And for a Bob Morley fan, it certainly does not disappoint. On a purely superficial level, him being shirtless throughout half of the film certainly helps.

That aside, I really didn't dislike it as much as I was expecting to. I thought the 4 main actors did a really good job selling the plot (as bizarre as it was) They all brought an impressive intensity to their roles. After the first 10 minutes, I thought I knew where the plot was going, but it actually surprised me. If you go into it with an open mind, as I did, it can be enjoyed for what it is: a light & entertaining psychological thriller. That's definitely how I would describe it. If not for the copious amounts of blood, it wouldn't be classified as a horror film.

I am not a horror fan, but somehow this film grabbed my attention. It is scary, but different because you are possessed by a dingo decorated trailer truck or 'road train' as they call them down under.

The acting was real good for a low budget film, and the outback looked both dangerous and beautiful. There is a sex scene between Sophie Lowe (ABC's Once Upon a Time in Wonderland) and Bob Morley (CW's The 100) in the beginning, but no nudity, no 'parts' are shown. Then, you got the graphic injury of Morley's arm through out the film. He does a great job of going insane, and both of the actors are hitting thirty when they play 18 year olds. They both do a great job of being eighteen though, despite physically,they do not look it. The girls were okay, nothing stood out about them except Sophie's gladiater sandals.

If you like foreign horrors, then give this one a watch.

Road Train (Dean Francis, 2010)

Man, Road Train, released in America as Road Kill, is getting savaged on the Internet. It has a 3.8 rating on IMDb as I write this (Rotten Tomatoes doesn't have enough reactions, either critically or from the public, to form an opinion yet), and the reviews and comment board are full of bile. [Note: between the writing of this review and the publishing of it, I have discovered the Syfy Channel repackaged this as a Syfy Original Movie; suddenly a lot of the above makes a lot more sense.] Now, I grant you, I am coming into this movie as an existing fan of both Sophie Lowe (The Clinic) and Xavier Samuel (The Loved Ones), so I was kind of partial to the movie before I even hit play (and noting on IMDB that Samuel was also in Eclipse clarifies a lot of things about the movie's chilly reception), and you know what? Now that I've finished it, I still don't see the problem. It's certainly not the most original movie in the world, though most of these demon-car flicks put one traveler up against the Satanic vehicle (The Appointment, Duel, and the third segment of Nightmares all come to mind) while this one puts a quartet of friends up against the possessed Road Train (in America, you probably know the Road Train as a triple-decker or stacked semi--it's where one cab is hauling two or three semi trailers) in question, and once you realized what other flick it's crossed the Duel conventions with, it becomes predictable enough. But solid acting, excellent cinematography, and a better-than-average script powered this one right on through the night.

Plot: four friends--Marcus (Samuel), Nina (Lowe), Craig (Home and Away's Bob Morley), and Liz (Crawl's Georgina Haig)--are on a camping trip in the Outback when they get into an accident. Well, kind of an accident.

Spoilers ahead! Okay, I only watched this movie because I'm a fan of Bob Morley from The 100. I thought it was going to be a gory slasher flick, but instead it's more psychological. I never quite understood why the truck was so addictive and why it runs on human bodies, but I was interested in watching the characters go crazy and turn on each other. Only one girl is unaffected by the truck for some unknown reason. I watched the movie to the end only because I was genuinely curious who would survive. I was really hoping the character of Craig could be saved, and that he and Nina could get out of there, but alas no such luck. All in all, it's not bad, just a little weird and slow at times. The acting was mostly good, and the scenery was amazing. I might watch it again just to make sure I didn't miss anything.
