Weird title this. Not the lorries we see on the roads today of course, but "a huge, powerful, and overwhelming force", which still doesn't make sense with this film - more to do with luring people into the cinema I expect, but at least the film poster made sense this time.
So, dying medical scientist (Boris Karloff) needs £20,000 to finish his research and takes up the offer from a young wife to move into the house of her sick elderly husband, to bump him off and get the necessary moolah.
Made up from bits of film I would say as whole scenes leapt forward in places.
All goes well, until...................
Not a bad short film and Karloff is always worth a watch as he oozes villainy. Oh, and the lugubrious Gibb McLaughlin from the previous JG Reeder film, played the butler in this one.
