Road Kill - Review - @BrandonCSites / #Horror

Road Kill (2010) **
D: Dean Francis
C: Xavier Samuel, Sophie Lowe, Bob Morley, Georgina Haig
P: A group of kids, traveling through the barren Australian outback, are run over by a driverless truck that forces them into a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Review: For about half of Road Kill's running time, it is an intriguing film that makes one wonder as to how things are going to unfold and what surprises the film has in store for viewers. However, as the film progresses, the narrative often ignores its own rules and starts to become confused and muddy often not making sense or simply being too hard to follow. 

There are some interesting tidbits on the duality of good versus evil. There are some eerie scenes scattered throughout. The film's photography vividly brings to life the Australian outback. And the performances are solid right down the line. Overall, Road Kill is a well made, well acted film, but the potential of the material is never fully realized because Road Kill doesn't know how to resolve its own ideology in a coherent manner. [R] 87 mins.
