Gruesome Supernatural Journey to Hell
16 September 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The teenagers Marcus (Xavier Samuel), Liz (Georgina Haig), Craig (Bob Morley) and Nina (Sophie Lowe) are camping in the remote outback of Australia. While driving on the road, a road train crashes on their car that leaves the road in a serious accident. The quartet survives and Craig breaks his arm, but their car is totally wrecked. However they see the train truck parked on road and Marcus and Liz walks to the vehicle to ask for help. They do not find the driver and sooner Craig and Nina arrive. When they see the driver shooting them, they decide to carjack the road train. Sooner they begin to act strange possessed by some evil force.

"Road Train" is a gruesome supernatural journey to hell of four teenagers. The story and the screenplay have many flaws, and there is no explanation why the two couples are camping together in a desert area if they have problems of relationship and grief with the betrayal of one of the girls. The beginning has a free exploitation of sex with an unnecessary scene. The characters are unlikable and it is impossible to feel empathy for any of them. The screams of the girls are unbearable. Marcus drinking urine is nasty and also unnecessary. There is no explanation for the three hound dogs on the hood of the train truck. What does Liz drink in the can? For foreigners like me, the term road train is mostly used in Australia and means a line of linked trailers pulled by a truck, used for transporting stock in remote areas of Argentina, Australia, Mexico, the United States and Canada. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Terror Sobre Rodas" ("Terror Over Wheels")
