Rest Stop (2006)

2 Stars (out of 4)


By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Nicole (Jaimie Alexander) and Jesse (Joey Mendicino) road trip from Texas to Hollywood to become movie stars. When they take a short cut and wind up at a run down rest stop, Jesse disappears, leaving Nicole to fend for herself as a mysterious, maniacal trucker tries to torture and/or kill her. Totally derivative and without any particular surprises, John Shiban's Rest Stop is still a skillful exercise, rippling with nervous tension. Warner's DVD includes the "unrated" version, alternate endings and other "deleted" goodies.
