    ...might be the best movie I have ever seen. That is all.

    Dennis Weaver was Mr. Everyman in that made-for-TV 1971 movie.

    They never showed the truckers face - which accentuated the evilness...................................

    Evil tends to be anonymous.

    And especially fascinating since it was pretty much just one person...Weaver...for the whole movie. One guy, mostly in his car, alone. Trippy.

    Yeah I remember watching this when it came out. Scared the crap outta me. Today I'd probably laugh through it. But at the time it was a good'n.
