Entertainment Reviews:

Plot Synopsis:

Very early in his career Steven Spielberg directed this suspenseful TV movie about a businessman who finds himself in a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a diabolical diesel truck. David Mann (Dennis Weaver) is in a race to get to an important appointment when a mysterious rig traveling on the same deserted highway decides to run him off the road. The truck's driver is never seen as Weaver's ever-increasing panic and rage build in this tale of road rage gone too far.

  • Theatrical release: April 22, 1983
  • The studio originally wanted Steven Spielberg to cast Gregory Peck in the role of David Mann.
  • When the film premiered as an ABC Movie of the Weekend, it was 73 minutes. As a theatrical release it was expanded to 91 minutes, including footage Spielberg added--the opening shot of the Valiant leaving the garage and the scene of the truck trying to push the car onto train tracks.
  • Some of Spielberg's other early television work included episodes of NIGHT GALLERY and COLUMBO.
