Back when the film was announced back in June, not much was revealed about Dean Francis’ Aussie horror-thriller Road Train, which was written by Clive Hopkins. The tease that was given to us was, “The “Duel”-style “Road Train” is about a group of youngsters menaced by a driverless road train in the Australian outback.” This morning the film’s production site posted a long synopsis and promo art for the film, which can be found inside.
Details come from Prodigy Movies:
Four young friends on a camping adventure in outback Australia are run off the road by a mystery road train – a massive three-trailer truck.
With their own 4×4 wrecked and the road train stopped, the friends march off to remonstrate with the driver.
But there is no one to be found!
Suddenly, the silence is broken by the sound of gunshots. A distant figure screams and runs towards them. Are they witnesses to a murder? There’s no time to discuss it. The friends commandeer the road train. The next town is only three hours away.
But the next town is somewhere they will never reach.
What they discover inside the vehicle’s trailers proves more terrifying than anything out there on that lonely road.
