Trivia

At the drive-in premiere in the state of South Australia where this movie was shot, truck owners could be admitted for free if they came in their prime movers. This gimmick had been done before in the late 1970s when the drive-in premiere for The F.J. Holden (1977) admitted for free anyone who arrived in an FJ Holden car. See more »

Goofs

When Marcus is running from the man with the gun, he hides beneath a broken down bridge or pier. Right before he goes under a man is visible in the top right corner of the screen. See more »

The Ultimate Movie Review! - http://tss5078.blogspot.com - @tss5078
20 November 2012 | by Tss5078See all my reviews

Ever since landing a role in the Twilight movies, Australian soap hunk, Xavier Samuel has been every where! Recently, many films he made back in Australia have been turning up on DVD in the U.S. and Road Kill is one of those films. Picked up as part of the Fangoria Frightfest, Road Kill isn't your typical horror flick. It has it's fair share of gore and beautiful people, but the story is defiantly unique. Four backpackers in the outback get run off the road by a large truck. Unable to go anywhere, they start walking and find the truck abandoned up the road. Since they're stuck in the middle of nowhere, they decide to take it and that's when they start to change. It's not the most original story, but it's not predictable either. Xavier Samuel does a terrific job as the groups leader, trying to make sense of the whole things. Both female leads, Sophie Lowe and Georgina Haig, are also really good. I tend to find in films like this that the girls are super hot, but very rarely can they act, but that's not the case here. Road Kill impressed me, but it's not all good, as parts of it were extremely slow and some of the dialogue was kind of ridiculous. Road Kill's a pretty entertaining film, it's nothing special, but it's not bad either.
