I can’t think of anything quite as nerve-wracking as a road-trip gone wrong. You see, I’m a stickler or meticulously kept plans and always dreamed of travelling through America in a Cadillac. Imagine doing that, having the time of your life, only to attract the attention of a menacing, merciless beast of a truck. Films like ‘Duel’ prey on that very feeling … oh great!
Hey guys, cancel the road-trip, I might just stay home instead!
The late Paul Walker stars in this horror movie dead-set on redefining the term ‘full-throttle’. When two brothers rub a truck driver up the wrong way over CB radio, they unwittingly become entangled in a life or death game of cat-and-mouse with their angst-ridden, psychotic foe.
It doesn’t matter how many times I watch this movie, Rusty Nail still scares the crap out of me. No wonder Roger Ebert likened this movie to the classic ‘Halloween’.
Rutger Hauer gives a performance to rival his work in ‘Blade Runner’ as the deranged hitchhiker with a habit of murdering anybody who picks him up. When an unsuspecting C. Thomas Howell casually pulls over to lend a helping hand, he opens himself up to two hours of non-stop, heart-pounding terror.
Justin Long and Gina Philips star in this surprisingly fun horror movie as two siblings who are travelling back from college – only to be pursued by someone (or something) that drives a dirty, disgusting truck.
I’ve been catching the train home ever since!
I actually found this film through itcher.com (nice one, guys!) and boy, what a thrill ride! It stars Stacey Keach as a trucker high-tailing it through the Aussie Outback to stop a serial killer with a hostage hitchhiker (Jamie Lee Curtis).
Great early 80s popcorn flick!
The scariest part of ‘Duel’, for me anyway, was the fact you never see who is driving the truck. Poor Dennis Weaver is just driving along only to find himself victim to some unknown’s destructive idea of fun. What a madman … or woman!
Here’s two more films that utilise that nerve-shredding idea of the unknown.
Colin Farrell does a great job at carrying this movie on his shoulders. He’s the man trapped in a phone booth as a lethal sniper waits somewhere in the skyscrapers above, taunting him over the phone and ready to blow his brains out.
My biggest gripe with horror films is that they always show too much of the big nasty. That’s not the case in the ultra-low-budget ‘Paranormal Activity’. There’s a suggestion of what the troublesome demon may look like but for the most part it’s left to your imagination, making this found-footage movie a hell of a lot scarier than its peers.
I don’t think a stop sign is going to prevent the nutters on this list from slowing down, do you? After this movie marathon, you might end up seeking alternative travel arrangements … anything to avoid the glaring headlights of an insane truck driver.
