All Roger (John Michael Morris) wants to do is to take his girlfriend Alice (Rachelle Christine) to an abandoned campground where they can have a couple of days all to themselves ... but then he tosses a can out of the window while driving and hits a truck - which apparently annoys that vehicle's driver (who never gets out of his car) to such an extent that he starts to follow Roger and Alice and try to run them off the road. At first it's no big deal because Roger's car is a souped up roadster that easily outruns the old truck, but what the truck lacks in speed it makes up in tracking abililties and cunning ... and when the truck one morning surprises Roger and Alice at their camping ground and almost lures them into a death trap, they know they are in the deep end.

Roger soon figures if he ever wants to get rid of his adversary, he has to lure him into a showdown, but attempts to do just that in an abandoned warehouse and an abandoned city patroled by a bizarre duo of cops (Tim Emery, Andy Grace) only lead to bloodshed, and Roger it appears is only left alive to be the mouse in the game of cat-and-mouse a bit longer ... but how long before his time's up?

 

Of course, some of this film's plot is extremely reminiscent of Steven Spielberg's Duel - but that's not to say The Truck is not terribly entertaining in its own right, because quite simply it is. A throwback to car horror flicks of old featuring expertly made car chases and quite a few stunts done very apparently the old-fashioned (= no CGI) way serve as the backbone of a very skeletal and yet exciting story, which is carried by a competent minimal cast, graced by bits of absurd humour (mainly the cops in the abandoned city and sold by camerawork that's functional in the best possible way.

To put it shortly, a pretty cool movie!
