A group of survivors hold out at a truck stop under siege by killer trucks as they wait and hope the comet passes the effects will end.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I liked this movie, one of the best Steven King movies like ever. The story works, the cast does a bang up job, the trucks driving themselves are cool. Now there are some minor character issues I wasn't crazy about, so I'll have to give the movie a 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this and the cast does do a great job and I love the GREEN GOBLIN truck. But the character issues bugged me more then Zedd and it dragged on at points. 8 STARS.
