Synopsis

Four young friends on a camping adventure in outback Australia are run off the highway by a ‘road train’, a massive diesel truck hauling two large trailers.

Seemingly preying upon them, the monstrous vehicle had come up behind their 4WD and seemed to intentionally push them off the road.  With their own vehicle wrecked following the crash, and the road train stopped nearby on the road, the friends march off to seek help from the driver.  But mysteriously, the cabin is empty, and there is no one to be found.

Suddenly, the silence is broken by the sound of gunshots.  A distant figure in the bush screams and runs towards them.  Have they become witnesses to murder?  With no time to discuss their options, the friends commandeer the powerful road train in a panic and drive off into the distance.  The next town is only three hours away…but the next town is somewhere they will never reach.

The truck has driven them to a location of its own choosing.  And what they soon discover inside the trailers proves more terrifying than anything they could imagine would be out there on that lonely, desolate, endless road…

Directed by award-winning Dean Francis, “Road Train” features a cast of Australia’s hottest young talent.  Xavier Samuel (soon to be seen in the third “Twilight Saga movie “Eclipse“), Bob Morley (TV’s “Home & Away“), Georgina Haig (TV’s “Underbelly“) & Sophie Low (nominated for her role in “Beautiful Kate“) star as the four friends terrorised by an unknown evil.  Featuring hair raising stunts and some gritty, realistic & intense action, “Road Train” is a trip into madness.  It will drive you to hell…
