Since that was such a common criticism, that's why I wondered if you were being sarcastic; you sounded just like the movie viewers of 1977.

However, I would have thought one would research the movie just a little bit before checking it out. Just because the director has one horror film in his resume (amongst crime dramas, comedies, etc) I wouldn't automatically assume that every one of his movies, title notwithstanding, is horror.
There you go. Well yes, I went in knowing nothing like the people in 1977 and i didn't even catch that Sorceror was the name of the truck. All I knew was the poster looked creepy and the title sounded supernatural so I was kind of eating for a twist in the films tone at some stage.
I only assumes this was horror /supernatural due to the title and related that to The Exorcist because I was hoping this would be just as impressive in effects and tone. Obviously if this was called something different I wouldn't just male those assumptions but the title definitely got the imagination rolling in a different direction.

They did however include Linda Fiorentino and Angie Everhart.
