Did You Know?


A lot of the technique for shooting Check Brights was gleaned by Barry W. Levy while watching acclaimed horror master Mick Garris. Levy was cast as Barbara Hershey's dead, (or undead) husband in the Stephen King movie, Riding the Bullet (2004). There were a lot of scenes shot in an old Christine-like car, and to better control things like lighting and sound, a lot of those scenes were actually shot in a studio. The car motion, moving lights, even headlights were all skillfully orchestrated inside a sound stage. During the shoot days, Levy bugged everyone about how to master the technique, and then took a lot of notes. See more »

Slick and menacing!
11 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a festival in Berkeley, California and it was amazing! It really made me think about how much we take our manners for granted on the road.

Dark, moody, and super cool music from Crystal Method. The editing was very effective and the actor playing the driver had the right mix of evil, good looks, and threat. Does anyone know what kind of car he was driving? It was pretty rad. I would like to see this as full movie.

Great idea to have some bad ass driving around knocking off all the people driving around like butt heads.

Well done.
