More details are starting to filter through on director Dean Francis’s first feature length film, the horror thriller Road Train. When we first heard about the project we’ll put our hands up and admit we thought it was all sounding (Kids get terrorised by a Demonic killer Truck) like a rip off of Spielberg’s ‘Duel,’ but reading through this new more detailed synopsis it seems there may be more to it than we first thought.
Synopsis: Four young friends on a camping adventure in outback Australia are run off the road by a mystery road train - a massive three-trailer truck. With their own 4x4 wrecked and the road train stopped, the friends march off to remonstrate with the driver. But there is no one to be found. Suddenly, the silence is broken by the sound of gunshots. A distant figure screams and runs towards them. Are they witnesses to a murder? There’s no time to discuss it. The friends commandeer the road train. The next town is only three hours away. But the next town is somewhere they will never reach. What they discover inside the vehicle’s trailers proves more terrifying than anything out there on that lonely road.
Filming on Road Train starts Feb 09. More as we get it.
