  • While writer-director Megan Freels Johnston makes some unusual choices that set her film apart from run-of-the-mill low-budget horror, too much of her movie feels warmed-over.

  • ''Ice Cream Truck" goes down rather easy, the clashing tactics holding a perverse charm when the pacing or story focus seems to drift for minutes at a time.

  • This truck never gets into gear, and will have a very hard time tempting moviegoers on either large or small screens.

    Some great throwback tone and an almost surrealist approach to suburban life I can really get behind. I won't pretend that The Ice Cream Truck will have universal appeal, the understated nature will bore some people, and the ending will aggravate some too. But it doesn't take the directions I was sure it would, and that little surprise is always nice, plus the acting was far better than what you would expect in this kind of indie Horror fare.
