Hear that familiar jingle? It means The Ice Cream Truck has been circling your block, and it’s pulled up with some new eye candy for you to feast on free-of-charge!
Written, produced, and directed by Megan Freels Johnston, The Ice Cream Truck (review) stars Deanna Russo and Hilary Barraford. Their co-stars include Dana Gaier, John Redlinger, Emil Johnsen, Jeff Daniel Phillips, and Lisa Ann Walter. It was also produced by YuMee Jang and Omid Shamsoddini.
Mary’s (Deanna Russo) husband gets relocated for work, which allows her to move back to her suburban hometown. As Mary’s family ties up loose ends back home, she moves into their new house alone and waits. Although her familiar suburb is a constant reminder of her youth, something seems strange. A local ice cream man with a love of nostalgia starts to kill some of her neighbors. Mary is torn between her mature instincts that something wrong and the distracting memories of her younger days.
