Three young people on a road trip from Colorado to New Jersey talk to a trucker on their CB radio, then must escape when he turns out to be a psychotic killer. (IMDb)
An effective psycho-killer thriller with a simple but suspenseful chase premise (semi-trucks have never been more terrifying), believable protagonists (Zahn is especially good as the high-energy troublemaker) and a chilling faceless villain (Levine’s creepy deep drawl doesn’t need visual support). A few more “how” and “why” answers would be nice as the terrifying plot developments pile up, but in the end, your pounding heart takes the forefront in this frantic flick that keeps you on your toes.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
