  • 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.

  • Russo is effective enough as the lead, though her performance is uneven. The writing wasn't quite as tight as it needed to be... But the ideas at the core of the movie are strong, and it's an intense thriller.

    Oct 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An insidious little pulse-pounder that slowly but surely worms its way under your skin!

    Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Overall, Johnston has crafted an engaging and easily relatable dark comedy in The Ice Cream Truck that made for a very enjoyable watch for this writer.

Audience Reviews for The Ice Cream Truck

  • Sep 19, 2017
    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.
