Ahead of her husband and kids, Mary (Deanna Russo) moves back to the suburban town she has grown up in to set up house ... but what should have been a sort of homecoming turns into a bit of a nightmare, as Mary seems weirdly out of sync with the prim and proper, gossip-hungry suburbanites, and of all of her neighbours she feels closest to Max (John Redlinger), a youngster who has just graduated from high school and who always carries weed - mostly because she sees her former self in him, and like him feels the urge to leave picture-perfect suburbia behind as quickly as possible. Max on the other hand feels drawn to Mary, as she's the first grown-up in his neighbourhood who actually understands him - plus she's also an attractive woman, thus sexual tensions soon emerge. There's one problem though, this suburbia is plagued by probably the most suburban thing there is, an ice cream truck ... only this truck's owner (Emil Johnsen) has a predilection for killing his customers - and he's very good at luring them into his truck ...

 

Judging from above synopsis alone, this could have easily been another by-the-numbers slasher - but fortunately, while not exactly ditching the formula, The Ice Cream Truck is much more about social commentary and about atmosphere than about the actual body count, and thus instead of getting another variation on a too well-known theme, the outcome is a movie that's almost David Lynch-ean in approach, that's well-acted, -directed and -scored, and that's most certainly worth a watch!
