StevenSpielburg's first [Not really. His first movie was "Firelight"] film is astoundingly good. Dennis Weaver is terrorized by an insane truckdriver in a beaten up tanker truck. The unseen truck driver is played by Cary Loftin [Nice name]. Anyone who is a fan of Spielburg should watch this.
One-track minded unseen psycho Tanker Truck driver!.

But just by looking at the ugly old grey tanker truck itself was scarier in your rear view mirror was enough to give a strong person like you a massive heart attack!. For me, this film clearly beats 'Jaws" in the scare-fest hands down by a long shot. Dennis Weaver should have won an Oscar for his absolute realistic role as the victorious victim. The evil unseen truck driver is the ultimate epitome of the worst road rage ever. Even the truck itself in this kind of mode is the scariest and creepiest metal road monster of them all.

OK, not all of the scenes work, but you have to give it to Spielberg. He really, really wants this movie to be funny. Like REALLY. The movie is literally dripping with ambition, so you have to give it credit for that.
