Product Description

The Australian outback is one of the most vast, desolate and brutal landscapes in the world. A place of immense beauty, mystery and a hazardous, hostile environment filled with danger. Today four innocent friends on a camping trip are about to find out how deadly that landscape is. Soon they will be forced to face pure, unadulterated evil in a bloody, gruesome journey to hell they might not survive… or want to survive. Forced off the road by a “road train” three-trailer truck, their 4x4 is destroyed. On approaching the truck responsible they find it abandoned without any trace of a driver. Deciding to steal the truck in order to make it to the next town they soon make a dreadful discovery: the vehicles sinister cargo. Dragged into a diesel-powered, blood drenched nightmare, now their only destination is death. Uncompromising in its brutality, Road Train is an intense, supernatural trip into modern horror, starring Xavier Samuel from Twilight.

4.0 out of 5 stars dual meets road games and maximum overdrive. 12 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
3.5 but i gonna give it four stats as i think worth a go if you like any of the threee films in my title. a bit weird if anything. starts great but pitters out abit. wish they focussed more on wots in the trailer. who was that guy claiming the truck? if only he had a background story. worth checkn out if you like aussie movies or horror and at the price worth a gamble.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money. 5 Sep 2010
By Mark G.
Format:DVD
Two couples are on a camping trip in the Australian outback.
Whilst they are travelling between destinations a road train (which looks like nothing more than a lorry with 2 trailers) appears on the road behind them and gives them a little nudge.
In retaliation the group overtake the lorry and give it the finger as they drive past. This means that once again they receive another nudge from the road train, only this time they come off a lot worse.
After climbing out of the wreckage almost unscathed, they spot the road train parked up a little way off so 2 of them go to investigate. When they arrive at the lorry they find the cabin to be empty.

At this point the question is are we in Duel or Maximum Overdrive territory?

The answer is neither, as they are both enjoyable, watchable movies and this isn't.

The characters are really whiney and annoying and worst of all ridiculously stupid. A prime example of this stupidity is when one of the characters hears a plane overhead and decides to attract its attention by lighting the world's smallest fire and shouting "over here." I realise that initially that sounds sensible but not when you see a shot of the plane which looks to be a jet liner at about 20'000 feet.

The whole movie has a 'made for the syfy channel' feel to it and isn't worth spending money on.
There isn't even any good stand out moments to keep you (briefly) entertained.
If you spot it on TV one day and there is nothing else on then by all means give it a watch as it's not so bad as to be awful and you will (just) manage to watch to the end but it just isn't worth spending your hard earned cash on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting psychological horror with some gore 18 Mar 2011
By Benminx
Format:DVD
Being an Aussie horror, this is a little off kilter, so it's best to go with the flow rather than going in thinking you know what to expect.
A relatively tight-knit car-load of friends on a journey initially think their dull day is about to get mildly livened up by the passing of a 'road train' - a huge truck of several connected trailers used to make transporting cargo across the enormous and deserted Outback more practical. However, interest turns to horror when the vehicle batters them off the road, and then mysteriously parks up within sight of the wreckage.
Upon investigating it, they find it deserted and take it in order to get help.
At this point the psychological horror begins to kick in, as slow-burn insanity begins to plague some of the friends. Friendships tear apart, and it becomes apparent that the original crazed driver might also want his vehicle back.
It isn't played flawlessly - some of the 'friends at odds' stuff has all been done before, and some patience is needed for the scenes of the friends lost in the outback, but as long as you 'get it' and are willing to play along with the idea, it becomes enjoyably tense. There's more gore nearer the end, and the irrational behaviour starts to be a little more explainable, but it's more psych than slice.
Fun, interesting low budget slow burn horror.
