      Arthur D There is no story. All it does is repeat and repeat the same scene over and over. Which is: The girl pops up out of a window in the car being chased and screams; two vehicles peel out, make sharp turns and do hard breaking. That is it. One hour and thirty seven minutes of the same. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Road rage films are always entertaining in the horror genre. There have been so many standout films in this genre, Steven Spielberg's Duel and of course The Car ranks among some of the finest ever filmed. With Wheels of Terror we have a made for TV affair that is overall enjoyable, but could have been better as well. I have seen many reviews of the film, and am surprised that I really liked it, based on what I've read, this is an awful film, but I disagree. Obviously it's far from perfect, but it definitely as bad as what I would expect. I would recommend the film to any horror enthusiast that enjoys road films, and the film succeeds at being an entertaining affair that delivers a fun hour and a half of fun, mindless entertainment. The mood of the film is dark, and it adds a lot to the film's structure and it helps it being much better than what it does. I really liked the film, but it also could have been better as well. If you enjoy the genre, then this is sure to entertain you. Wheels of Terror isn't awful as what you'd expect, it's your typical made for TV movie, and does have some tense, thrilling moments that make up for a truly entertaining picture. If you're a fan of such films, then you definitely ought to watch this film. The film has its flaws, but for the most part it has enough fuel in the tank to make it a worthwhile low budget horror yarn to watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member I own a bootleg copy of this on DVD and will buy the official version if it is released in Australia. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member just watched this movie, really boring and forgettable the movie is just absurd Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Add a Review (Optional) Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member It turned from a Good movie to an incredibly insane stupid one, the ending was ridiculous, the amount of damage the bus and car took was absolutely insane, and the wheels didn't even spark, for either of the vehicles everything just seemed fine, except for the dents and smashes, multiple parts showing glaring errors inside the bus... over abundance of Slo mo Camera scenes (a cheap way to drag the movie on), I could go on and on.... Bad Movie one of the worst I think I have ever seen. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
