Road Rage unites Richard Matheson’s classic “Duel” and the contemporary work it inspired–two power-packed short stories by three of the genre’s most acclaimed authors. “Duel,” an unforgettable tale about a driver menaced by a semi truck, was the source for Stephen Spielberg’s acclaimed first film of the same name. “Throttle,” by Stephen King and Joe Hill, is a duel of a different kind, pitting a faceless trucker against a tribe of motorcycle outlaws, in the simmering Nevada desert. Their battle is fought out on twenty miles of the most lonely road in the country, a place where the only thing worse than not knowing what you’re up against, is slowing down . . .

 

Review –

Richard Matheson’s story, Duel, was made into a television movie and later into a full length big screen production, starring Dennis Weaver, in 1971. I’ve seen the movie several times and it always gets my adrenaline going. The big old  tanker truck driven by a mysterious man we never see, to this day creeps me out and I try to stay from any and all trucks if im on the Interstate.  I had the audio version of this story and it was great. 

The second story was entitled Throttle also has a faceless trucker but this time he is “dueling”  an outlaw motorcycle gang and I didn’t really care for it.
