When Roger and Alice take a weekend trip to explore an old campground Roger has inherited, they are tormented by a devilish truck that is seemingly driven by pure evil...
Riley Hollow Films' road horror film The Truck, which is released on DVD, VOD and through select screenings on November 12, is written and directed by Lee Vervoort and marks the second feature length film from the stuntman-turned-director.
His sophomore effort follows the highly 2009 film Gun Town. Vervoort's stuntman roots are highly visible on screen during the action-packed chase sequences of The Truck: the movie features a classic Ford Fairlane 500 being chased by a menacing four-wheel drive monster.
The film is full of old fashioned stunts. For example, in a scene where Vervoort crashes through the bay door of a warehouse, the automobile only had one inch of clearance on both sides. He lost the passenger side mirror, even with them both turned in.
Vervoort says of the fast and mean action sequences: "I enjoyed being able to do most of the stunt driving, and coordination, myself. The terror really comes across on screen, as we were doing this the old fashioned dangerous way. Fast cars, metal-on-metal, rubber to the road."
The Truck stars John Michael Morris as Roger Newman and Rachelle Christine as Alice Mason. The movie also co-stars Jenna Nichole Ruiz playing a teenage hitch hiker and re-teams Vervoort with members of his Gun Town cast, Tim Emery and Andy Grace.
The film was shot in western Kentucky earlier this year by cinematographer Jim Dougherty. It is currently in post-production, and being scored by Danny Lee Ramsey at Giant Shadow Filmworks in Nashville, TN. Ramsey also makes a special appearance in the film.
