4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love and respect the killer in this one March 22 2010
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
For this horror fan's money, Rest Stop is a gritty, gory thrill ride well worth watching. Yes, the story has some problems, but I really don't understand all the vitriol directed toward this juicy little film. You have to respect a killer who has honed his craft to such an exquisite degree as the Rest Stop killer; this guy has psychological and physical torture down to a freaking science, savoring every minute of the heroine's extended ordeal. He repeatedly leaves the scene entirely, confident that his prey remains under his complete control in each of his absences. Admittedly, the fact that our poor dumb heroine isn't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer helps, but I still have to give major kudos to our bad guy. I don't think I've ever characterized a killer as having panache, but this guy has it in spades. I don't care how unoriginal and sometimes clichéd the movie was, I quite enjoyed it. Still, the critics have some valid points. The addition of a certain family into the story was an embarrassingly bad decision that comes across as shameless pandering, while certain potentially confusing elements in the plot will be decried as serious plot holes by some - although I think their inclusion and lack of a definitive explanation actually add an effective depth to the story. Those who expect their horror movies to wrap everything up with a Scooby Doo ending won't like it, but I see no reason why a horror film can't leave you pondering over a few unanswered questions.

The basic storyline is pretty simple. Young Nicole Carrow (Jaimie Alexander) runs off to California with her boyfriend Jess (Joey Mendicino) - but they never make it. At some point along the way, Nicole's need to relieve herself lands them both at the world's nastiest and most remote rest stop.

REST STOP is a movie that will get an "Not Bad' or "OK, but what I have seen a lot better" from veteran horror film watchers. Occasional viewers of the genre will enjoy it.....

This flick is part the latest 2000 trend of dirty (not in a sexual way) horror film. Everything looks filthy and rotten. It kind of sets the mood in this Gorey atmospheric thriller.

This Serial killer film picked ideas from several movies. It reminded me of "The Duel". "Jeepers Creepers". "The Sadist", "Saw" and some others. It is very episodic. The plot is simple : "A young woman is trapped inside a deserted REST STOP and is violently harassed by a sadistic maniac driving a yellow pick-up truck". The producers are trying hard to create another trendy horror film character. The "Pick-up driver" idea is not bad, but it goes nowhere as it is not develop fast enough. The main actress carries the movie on her shoulders and, to my opinion, is doing a fine job delivering her narrow role. Unfortunatly, challengers to the Scream Queen title are numerous and this role will not get her more points than the average score. The is some gore, but not a lot. It is well used and cranks the tension up a few notches. A little ghost story kicks in, but it is discarded too early. There could have been a lot mileage to get from it.

Look for this one as part of a boxset. On it's own it is very generic, but it will add good value to a double or triple feature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Texas Chainsaw Massacre Meets Wolf Creek Aug. 17 2007
Format:DVD
A young couple decides to runaway to sunny California. They never reach their destination as they decide to pull over at the Rest Stop.

After a fight with her boyfriend, Nicole Carrow insists on pulling in to a rest stop. When she is ready to leave, she exits the bathroom to find her boyfriend has disappeared with their car, leaving her trapped on the back roads of Texas with only an abandoned camper van to keep her company.

Rest Stop is one of those cheap and tacky horror movies that could become a cult classic. Will Rest Stop become a cult classic you may ask? Well the three elements that you need to become a cult classic are gore, sex and artistic merit. Rest stop has bucket loads of gore, and while I do not want to give too much away, it contains oodles of blood-soaked nastiness. This movie has everything from the bad guy running over a cop's legs with his car several times to him making use of a pneumatic drill on a girl's leg. At times, it can be about as bloody as a film can get. It also has a gratuitous and yet somehow quite intimate love scene in the opening minutes of the film. Therefore, the sex is covered. Now the hard one - does it have any artistic merit?

You never get to see the bad guy's face - you see glimpses, profiles, shadowy silhouettes. He is a faceless, relentless, monster, which alone scores highly on the artistic merit scale. The movie has very few characters in it apart from the main protagonist - Nicole Carrow (Jaimie Alexander). Since she spends a large part of the film on her own, she cannot reveal her thoughts in the course of a conversation, but must speak them aloud so that we, the audience, know what she is thinking.
