THE PLOT:

Two buds on a road trip, the goal to stop a Wedding in one of those "I OBJECT" moments in all those romantic movies. But this is no romanance movie, it's a horror show and along the way they are harassed by a ugly monster truck. Harley makes the mistake of flipping him off and urinating in his cockpit when he was out.

Now the Monster Man has set his sites on the two friends and the sexy hitchhiker they end up picking up. What is the motive of the Monster Man, why are there many people missing limbs in this area and can they escape his wrath, alive?

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I did enjoy the concept of a monster driving a monster truck. The characters were likable, the main two had good chemistry together, as if they were buds for a long time. The graphic sex talk got annoying, it got in the way of the plot. Besides I'd rather watch graphic sexual content then hear about it. I give it...7 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Zedd is right and there is this one scene involving Harley and road kill that I will not get ihto details is really gross and I could have done without seeing it. Anyway, basically it was interesting and kind of cool. I give it...6 STARS
