A throwback to the glory days of Horror and what a blast it is!
28 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Who knew where Vervoort would take us next. Ever since the gloriously amusing and entertaining Gun Town, I have diligently been awaiting what would follow. The Truck is, as par usual, a fun ride but what stands out is that the director is starting to refine his craft even more and in this it shows.

As the story goes Roger and Alice are in their way to a campground as a weekend getaway when they encounter a truck that refuses to go and persists in tailing them, terrorising them. Who will make it out alive...?

The acting is extremely competent, at times you genuinely feel for the two main characters because the actors aren't hollow caricatures in particular Rachelle Christine is a joy to watch and an actress designed to go much further.

The cinematography is fantastic, the camera never jerks too much, the fluid motion works well and pops the colours that appear on screen when not the case the eerie way the truck slinks in shadows is done beautifully.

All effects, however few there are, look fantastic and reinforce why prosthetic is much better than CGI.

Just overall this is a fun, entertaining throw back to old school horror. You have some gorgeous cars, tidy neat acting, and a soundtrack that really defines what eerie means.

I love Tim Emery and Andy Grace whose fun touch has been missed.

Lee Vervoort is steadily becoming a director to keep an eye out for. I LOVED this film and eagerly await the next one to come. The Truck must and should be seen by every horror fan out there as this is what a horror film should be!

Excellently written, superb cast, a glorious fun film that comes highly recommended by me.
