Duel (1971)

PG 90 min. TV Movie. Written by Richard Matheson. Directed by Steven Spielberg. Starring Dennis Weaver and a demonic Peterbilt 18-Wheeler.

"Duel is a 1971 television (and later full-length theatrical) thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg in his full-length film directing debut and written by Richard Matheson, based on Matheson's short story of the same name. It stars Dennis Weaver as a terrified motorist stalked on a remote and lonely road by the mostly unseen driver of a mysterious tanker truck."

Spielberg had what he called an "audition" for the truck, wherein he viewed a series of trucks to choose the one for the film. He selected the older 1955 Peterbilt 281 over the current flat-nosed "cab-over" style of trucks because the long hood of the Peterbilt, its split windshield, and its round headlights gave it more of a "face", adding to its menacing personality. -Wikipedia

Duel achieved cult film status and there is a project to create a documentary on the making of the film and the fan cult around it.
