When the diesel pump goes feral and sprays Duncan in the face, the fuel that comes out of the nozzle is a dirty gray-black in color. Raw, undyed diesel fuel's color ranges from clear to light amber; the Dixie Boy's pumps would have been full of undyed diesel, since the government hadn't mandated dying it different colors for different uses. Even when coloring of diesel fuel became law, the three colors were red, white (clear/yellow), and blue. See more »
Yes its stupid, yes its dumb, yes its whatever negative word you might wanna say, but if you want silly action, this is for you. After a comet passes over earth it leaves some of its demonic haze surrounding the planet. This particular haze takes control of machines, making them deadly killers (for whatever reason). A group of people trying to stay alive hold up at the Dixie Boy truck stop. Some dumb enough to stray from the inside get knocked off, others devise a plan to escape someplace where they can wait out the possession of the comet. Its not the most complex of plots of course, but if you like watching stuff get blown up or people hit by cars or trucks, or watching little leaguers getting neatly pressed by steamrollers, this delivers. (Yes, really, a steamroller).
