Duel

TV Times - - Saturday -

film / 6.45pm / Hor­ror Channel

den­nis Weaver is the in­no­cent stalked by a mon­ster truck with an un­seen driver in Steven Spiel­berg’s nobud­get break­through, a clas­sic of the chase genre, show­ing on this free-to-air channel. Writ­ten by Richard Mathe­son, an old hand at script­ing the likes of The Twi­light Zone, Duel knows that it is a lot smarter than the av­er­age film, but never makes an is­sue out of it. And as the epic strug­gle en­sues, Spiel­berg shows how to rein in ten­sion and ride it all the way to the fin­ish.
