Topic: The Truck: The Latest Film from HM's Own Lee Vervoort (Ace of Spades)

As I've already posted in other threads a couple times tonight, I was recently given the opportunity to check out Ace's new flick, The Truck.  As also stated in my other posts, Ace's intention was to pay homage to the great road/road horror flicks of the '70s and '80s -- films such as Duel, The Car, Road Games, The Hitcher, Vanishing Point, etc.

And he nailed it!

The Truck is a solid little chiller with effective performances, rich cinematography, some hair-raising stunts and one beast of a titular killer vehicle.  Set in the mid-'80s, the film concerns a young man who, following the ill-timed chucking of an empty beer bottle, incurs the wrath of a psychotic driver with a homicidal streak and a decidedly leaden foot.  I won't give away any more story so as not to ruin it, but rest assured, there's some solid shocks along the way.

As much as I enjoyed the flick, what's most impressive is that Ace was able to pull it off on so modest a budget.  I encourage all resident road horror fans -- actually, horror fans in general -- to support our buddy Lee and grab yourself a copy of the flick when it becomes available.  And be sure to come back to this thread afterwards and post your own review.

The Truck: See it!

I'm going to tape you and Acey to the hood of my Malibu and go through several car washes since he gave you a preview before me.  This displeases the monkey.  Woof.

What about me?  I'm the oldest one here, I could die before i get to see it, and you let a wipper snapper see it first?

If you can defeat Chibbles the Sharp in hand-to-hand combat, you can take my spot.

In Lee's defense, the only reason he let me see it first is because I'm so awesome.  But I don't have to tell you guys that.  You already know. smile

I will eat your guitar and/or bass.

Re: The Truck: The Latest Film from HM's Own Lee Vervoort (Ace of Spades)

No!  Not Mr. Thump-Thump!  He's a good bass!  Don't blame him for his master's over-amped ego!  And while you're at it don't blame the master, either!  He can't help how awesome he is!

Azzy the Hungry will defer from eating Mr. Thump-Thump.  Mainly because it sounds like a disease contracted in Hawai'i.
Azzy has no opinion on Mr. Thumpy's Master, as that would be "icky."
So spoketh the monkey.

Glad to hear Lon dug it. I'm sure Lee's new film is going to be awesome, and I look forward to watching it for myself. You can't really go wrong with a badass car movie...horror or otherwise.

And I'm not really even all that interested in cars...but I dig all the movies. *shrug*
Vanishing Point and Tarantino's Death Proof probably being my favorites.
Out of horror, John Carpenter's Christine.

Re: The Truck: The Latest Film from HM's Own Lee Vervoort (Ace of Spades)

I'm just hoping Lee shoots himself out of a cannon.  He jumped off a water tower for Gun Town, so he needs to step it up.  Or maybe shoot The Truck out of a canon while Lee is tapdancing on it while it flies through the air, then does a triple flip onto a horse, and rides off into the sunset.  Now that is how to make a movie, damn it!

Where am I?

I am stoked! It sucked that we missed Lee for Guntown this year at HFest, really wanted to check it out with you all. But this will make up for it!
