The Ice Cream Truck Reviews

September 11, 2020
At times a fairly classic horror film and at other times a thought-provoking psychological thriller.

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.

An insidious little pulse-pounder that slowly but surely worms its way under your skin!

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.

With a highly distinctive style and a pleasing resistance to narrative convention, The Ice Cream Truck is a potent, moody, highly entertaining little film that you'll want to watch at least twice.

There's immense charm to the film's engagement with hoary slasher film tropes played mostly sincerely, but with a sense of humor about it.

The film may not be perfect by any means but viewers who are looking for something a bit different and who are willing to weather some strange tonal shifts along the way should probably check it out.

The polished production values fool me and I stuck with the movie thinking there was a greater meaning and craftsmanship to what was happening.

Megan Freels Johnston is rather promising as a director, providing a visual for the film as delightful as your usual truck's treats.

Whatever ambitions Johnston might have had for the picture, they aren't realized on the screen.

A scary world filled with everyday, distinctly frightening stuff for women in the real world yet to be mined as fuel for horror in movies - who knew. And kicking in a new and different kaleidoscope of bizarre, amusing and unconventional at the same time.
August 18, 2017
A thriller featuring a flirty May/December romance competing with a standard slasher horror film makes for a bad (and boring) combination.

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.
August 15, 2017
It's an odd amalgamation of cinematic tropes that never properly gels.

''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.

A middle-aged woman who had married young and yearns to re-live her high-school days gets more than she bargained for at the hands of a horny 18-year-old and an old-fashioned ice cream man.

Despite the titular killer, this is very much [Deanna Russo's] movie... The Ice Cream Truck delivers more than just two scoops of lunacy covered in psychotic nuts and sprinkles. Chill out, and eat it up!
