Original title: "Nice Driving Dennis Weaver."

Great horror road cinematography for a daytime film--should have been for a big theatrical screen, but looks real cool on TV. The ending was okay, but I expected more since the majority of the film was very suspenseful.

Steven Spielberg's feature film debut, and a great thriller, with hints of his greatness to come. Shot in less than two weeks, it was originally just a made-for -TV movie, but was so good they filmed more footage for an overseas theatrical release.

I first saw this 'David vs. Goliath' psychological thriller when I was a young kid, and it scared the hell out of me. (lol) According to Steven Spielberg, this feature film directorial debut launched his career. It's got the suspense of a Hitchcock flick. The faceless wingnut in his rusted retro Peterbilt, relentlessly barreling down on poor skittish Dennis Weaver in his puny (but sensible!) Plymouth Valiant. I thought it was very well done, for a '71 "ABC Movie of the Week". Bonus features with Spielberg and writer Richard Matheson are very interesting. FIVE STARS.

I found myself feeling a mixture of things throughout the entire duration of this film. Chiefly, I felt tense, frustrated and the constant need for some sort of resolution. I cannot imagine myself being in this guy's shoes; especially driving a retro car like that! It's a good movie overall considering the time.

drama - good for the period but lacking good stunts for a car chase movie. Creepy truck, muy bien.

Dialogue? We don't need no stinking dialogue! We have big, stinking truck instead!

Seriously: there's oodles of story you can tell without using words. This would work just as well without any sound as it does with.

David Mann: (mocking his wife's voice): "Well dear, did you have a nice trip? (his response) Uh, no, no... Just the... just the same old thing... o-boy, o-boy, o-boy..."
