It took a little getting used to and its sometimes a bit "confusing" when you don't truly know what's going on, but all in all an enjoyable horror romp. Its 'Joyride' meets 'The Mangler'. Plenty of blood, guts and a hot sex scene for you horror nuts that need those things in your horror movies (lol). Not a terrible way to spend 90+ minutes!

When I discovered that Fangoria was doing their own little fright film collection, I was beyond excited. I read that magazine on a monthly basis and I love film fests that focus on horror. Road Kill was the first one I got my hands on and I was definitely looking forward to it. It sounded like an Australian Joy Ride, only different. Let me just say, this was not what I expected. Basically a bunch of kids are taking a road trip through Australia and they are crashed into by a road train(tractor trailer). Their car is totaled and one of the friends ends up with a broken arm. When they discover the road train parked down the road, two of them go to investigate. They find it empty and decide to take it, along with the other two who were left behind, so they can get help. As they're stealing the truck, the driver starts shooting at them, but to no avail. The friends then discover the horros that await them in the road train.

It sounds like a really good film, but it didn't make much sense to me and I found it very lacking. I was highly disappointed with this one. Such a shame, too, considering it had potential.

Somebody thought this was a good idea? Really?

"I really find it hard to write something about this film. I'm kind of shocked that this thing even got made. It's not very good. I don't want to say too much about the actors because I think the cast gave it a sincere effort and probably did pretty good with the material they had to work with, but the plot was so silly. For instance, when Nina opened the back door of the trailer and walked inside...My thought was "Really?" Who in their right mind, or even out of their right mind would have gone in there? And then at 120 minutes, when she hesitated to pull the trigger. Oh, heck no. Usually, I give stars for meeting the expectations I had for a movie going into it. If it meets expectations, then I rate it higher no matter how low those expectations were. Well, I didn't have real high expectaions for this one, but ROAD KILL does not even meet the minimum either in horror or parody. It is no fun at any point and does seem to take itself seriously. I can't even put it in a class with other films that are so bad they're good. I gave it 2 stars because I made it through to the end and because the ending was kind of interesting. I actually had to replay the ending then go back and look at an earlier scene to determine what exactly had happened. Unfortunately, going back did not explain it so I just had to go with my own thoery."
Pointless Australian Mess. *Spoilers*

"Let me first say I am usually a big fan of the Australian Horror Films. This film starts off ok and then goes straight down hill. Road Kill takes place when a Truck rams into a car filled with four people and causes them to crash. They then go after the driver and Truck which has stopped not far from the crash only to find no driver inside. **SPOILERS** The Truck requires blood to run, playes hypnotic music causing them to leave the Highway and drive off road, has some Wolf Heads' Symbol they never explain, causes visions... Very disappointing and very lame. Waste of time and quite frankly this has been done several times before such as The Mangler. This series overall was to be as the 8 films to die for but comes up short. Way short. Pighunt was at least entertaining enough to watch if you want something a little different. **Check out "Grimm Love" and "Fragile" probably the best two films out of this series."
