Rest Stop is an enjoyable horror film for the most part.it does veer
into disgusting territory for a couple of scenes,but unlike some recent
films of the genre,it does not revel in depravity.the movie has a
unique twist that keeps it from being your typical standard horror
movie.there are of course,some of the necessary elements for a film of
this genre,such as the character who does all the right stupid
things,and it does borrow from one or two other movies.however,it is
nonetheless an entertaining ride,which should get the adrenaline
flowing.there do seem to be some inconsistencies in the movie,although
there may be reasons for this. i think this is a movie that requires
more than one viewing in order to fully understand what is happening.it
should make you think,and by that i mean about the subtleties of the
plot and not the disgust factor.as an aside see if you can guess who
plays the cop. 4/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Texas Chainsaw Massacre Meets Wolf Creek Aug. 17 2007
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hold it in! May 23 2010
Decent watchable straight to dvd flick that wears its influences on its sleeve. Could've benefited from a likeable female lead.
