Goofs

The crew is located on an island 200 miles off the coast of Africa. In a scene where the bulldozer is lurking in the bushes, it looks like traffic is moving along a highway in the background, but in fact those vehicles are the two jeeps and the pickup truck making their way up the hill in the survivors' attempt to escape the Killdozer. The vehicles are seen twice beyond the bushes: once moving right to left on one part of the road, then a moment later moving left to right on a higher part of the road. See more »

"Duel" with a hard hat on
24 April 2002 | by rob-236See all my reviews

My favourite film by a mile as a small child. I remember watching this with my sister when I was about 6 and she was 2 and it scared the pants off us!!.

Its a great tale of a group of construction workers on a remote island who accidentally drive a bulldozer into a very strange rock - having very strange effects, giving the bulldozer a killer streak!! - Sound naff?, well maybe - enjoyable and still a little scary? - you bet!! I haven't seen the film for about 10 years and I don't think its on video but I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who likes such better known films as "Duel" and "The Car"
