This 1986 supernatural thriller from New Zealand taps into that part of the world's obssession with cars (The Cars That Ate Paris, Goodbye Pork Pie, Mad Max and The Road Warrior) and delivers a slow burn, but atmospheric thriller that uses suggestion and those 'out of the corner of your eye' moments to build suspense rather than resorting to blood and gore and stupid jump moments.
The no-name cast guarantees that anyone is expendable and you're never quite sure what's going to happen next.
If you like your horror gory or obvious, then this just won't do for you, especially in terms of the blood spillage, but if you want something spooky and off the beaten track then keep and eye for it.
