So I figured when you get a chance to bring Richard Matheson and a not-yet-insane Steven Spielberg to the site, I’m not sure how you can refuse. I couldn’t. And yes, this was Spielberg’s feature directorial debut. Dennis Weaver vs. a tanker truck. What made me think of the film?
Bailey sent me the fact that a recent auction of one of the three trucks used in the making of the film took place. I couldn’t quite see what it went for, but I think it would be fun to get it road-ready and drive it around, just seeing who pisses themselves in fear over it. Seriously. So here we are, Movie Night #19 for 32 Days of Halloween.
And for the DVD review we have of the film, you can find that here.
Last year at this time, we were checking out the original 1942 Cat People.
