Road Train in Ten Convenient Images

Pardon the gratuitous nature of this entry, but I'm sure you won't mind.

Road Train, the Aussie horror thriller about a driverless truck running a group of tourists off the road, is not a good movie. It's one of those movies that seems designed for viewers to yell at the screen whenever a character does something silly like investigate a strange noise (which happens a lot) or walk around by themselves (which happens a lot more). It's full of all sorts of grisliness and a plot trick that was done far better in Triangle.

But, really, the main reason I didn't like it? Not enough of Xavier Samuel being sexualised! Clearly they needed more of Xavier in various stages of sweaty undress...

...and less of these annoying characters screaming at each other like a pack of wild banshees.

How silly of them, they should've known better. D

I have a hard time remembering what happened in this movie. At a certain point, it was a lot of screaming. I thought it did a good job of setting up an effective atmosphere, I guess.
