British thriller. Would-be writer Zakes (William Ash) is driving home along the rain-drenched M1 motorway with his girlfriend Beth (Christine Bottomley) asleep in the passenger seat beside him. When a near-accident causes him to catch a fleeting glimpse into the back of a white lorry just in front of him, he sees to his horror that it contains a woman tied up and covered in blood. The couple stop at the next service station, where Zakes, tired and shaken, carries out his job of posting flyers in the toilets. When he comes out he is horrified to discover that Beth has gone missing. Could she be the next victim of the owner of the white lorry?

There have been some great british horror films recently such as eden lake and the children but for my money this is the best one yet. The story follows a young couple who are traveling down a busy rain swept motorway stopping at service stations to change the posters on display. The couple are not getting along and its clear their relationship is almost over. They are stuck in a traffic jam and to their horror the back door of the lorry in front of them flips open briefly to reveal a semi naked girl chained and screaming for help.
The lad phones the police who dont seem that bothered and the lorry drives away. The girlfriend is furious with her boyfriends reluctance to get involved and at the next service station tells him she is leaving him. He then notices the same lorry parked in the car park and no sign of his girlfriend only her dropped necklace on the floor.
A life and death chase now begins as the young man tries to find his missing girlfriend and outwit the cloaked and hooded figure who is driving the lorry.
This film is packed with suspenseful moments and i was literally clinging to the edge of my seat at some points particularly the scene where our hero is stalked through a maze of lorry containers by the films never named or fully glimsed villain. Having our villain silent is also a brilliant concept reminicent of michael myers in the original halloween.
I really recommed all fans of the horror genre check out this little gem of a film and those who missed its cinema run should really get the dvd. Its frightening and suspenseful. Watch it!
So, why is this British horror so damn good? Well theres the believable characters and dialogue for a start. Also, the way that director Tonderai squeezes every last drop of tension from even the most mundane of situations. Then theres the superb camera work, and the two excellent performances from the two leads.
With British horror in such capable hands , theres good reason to expect a rosy future for both the industry and for Tonderai, as its hard to believe that this was his directorial debut, as the film is so accomplished. An excellent, suspenseful little horror/thriller. 5 out of 5
job is to replace posters in Motorway-Rest area's, suddenly their path is temporarily blocked by a lorry that's travelling
somewhat haphazardly, the rear shutter opens briefly, 'Zakes' believes he see's a naked-woman tied up in the back.
'Zakes' tries to report what he's seen to the police, then to put some distance between them and the truck.
Stopping off at a Rest-Area to carry on his work, 'Beth' after a falling out say's she'll find her own way home.
On reflection 'Zakes' decides to look for 'Beth' to apoligise but can't find her, after a misunderstanding with security guards
'Zakes' returns to the car-park finding an item of jewellry belonging to 'Beth' on the tarmac, looking up he see's the truck
they'd seen earlier pulling away.
He gives chase, but the tables are turned when the pursuer becomes the pursued, 'Zakes' try's to hide, but when a woman
he believes has escaped the vehicle joins him, he again seeks help this time at a farm, however the woman from the truck
is not what she seemed to be.
Things quickly turn sinister, it becomes a cat and mouse struggle as he still has to find and help 'Beth'
Throughout the film very little really pans out for 'Zakes' it's perhaps somewhat far-fetched in truth....though, it does have
it's moments........i'd say an okay British-Offering from 2009 which if never seen is worth a viewing.
(Have owned this since it's Blu-ray release, though, this is the first time of watching on my part)
