Let me try to explain a little about this. As stated in the lightening in a bottle reference Road Kill plays out like Maximum Overdrive meets Midnight Meat Train thanks to the meat conveyer inside the trailer of the film’s menacing big rig. It seems as if the truck chooses its own victims thus creating a gnarly conveyer belt covered in human flesh. You’ll even see glimpses of Rest Stop herein, just nowhere near as solid of a story.
The film does keep you anticipating each and every scene due to its numerous twists and keeps you entertained in that aspect as well as very well done special gore effects, but it just doesn’t work. It plays out as a very little more than a feeble attempt at scaring you. If you want to just watch a trippy so called horror flick I suppose this one is okay, but to avoid contradiction I’ll reiterate: It doesn’t work.
All in all, Road Kill was very disappointing to me as it shows high potential and could be one hell of a cool movie if those involved would have taken their time and put forth more effort. Approach this one at your own risk. It’s just …meh.
