Best friends Emily and Lesley decide to take a road trip to get away from it all. When Emily makes a decision to turn off the busy highway and on to a lone, desert road, a quicker route, all hell breaks loose. They soon find themselves the target of a mysterious tow truck that forces them into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Harrowing escapes, deadly situations and near captures constantly shifting, turning their road trip into a living, breathing nightmare.
Wrecker occasionally uses some interesting shots but on the whole this is an inferior film and a weak example of the horror/slasher genre. It feels more dated than the 1971 Spielberg film and it’s unsuccessful as both an action and a horror film.
The film's only plus points are a few jump scares, slickness and the scenic great outdoors, where it was shot. Apart from that, there's little else to recommend.
The scenic outdoor views, a few scenes that will make you jump in your seat, to relive the thrill and scare of Duel; watch Wrecker for all of these reasons.
I recommend you give this a miss. You've already been there and done that.
