1.0 out of 5 stars Give it a rest 13 July 2010
By All of them Witches TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Undoubtedly one of the worst films I have ever seen. There's no way the lead female has 'actor' as a profession in her passport never mind the rest of the cardboard cut-outs masquerading as the cast.
An insipidly dull woman ends up at a public convienience in the wilderness. Boyfriend disappears and the rest of the film revolves around her remaining in and around the toilet occasionally locking herself in to avoid the clutches of the baddie truck driver who appears for a while then drives off for a bit before coming back and then leaving for a bit again.
Throw in a strange religious Southern family in a camper van with the obligatory deformed offspring lurking in the back which contribute nothing to the story and are the poorest example of this particular cliche I've seen to date and get 100 monkeys on 100 typewriters to randomly press keys, formulate said work into a script, intersperse with torture scenes and release straight to dvd whilst claiming that it was too shocking for theatrical release.
You can tell by the raft of alternative endings on the dvd that the director/writer was clueless as to what he wanted to achieve with this. Utter tosh.

1.0 out of 5 stars Senseless plot and body doubles! 28 Nov 2010
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I WAS looking forward to watching this DVD having read the cover, although that VERY OFTEN is fatal I have to admit as in this case.The film starts with Nicole and Jess, who stop to consummate their running-away - why the heck were body-doubles used for Jaimie Alexander, she's no 'A' STAR actress who can make demands yet surely? The next is she needs a pee and has to use a proper toilet, not a bush and fortunately in the middle of nowhere is the "Rest-Stop". May Contain Spoilers: She uses the loo leaving Jess in their car o/s with SEVERAL other cars there also but when she exits the building there is NO-ONE or NO vehicle there except an old RV? She walks to the road thinking Jess is playing a trick and suddenly an old yellow truck is driven at her. The same one that had earlier forced their car off the road near a bend and driven off. She ran to use a 'phone at the stop only to find it damaged. There she saw numerous "Missing Persons" posters.

She sees the yellow truck approach again and decides to hide in the toilet block, a bad decision for her and the viewer because from hereon in the film centres on that building, the Park Wardens Office and nowhere else.

If as is possible this film contains an element of the "Ghost Story" which would explain certain aspects and incidents in it that occur then I would give it a couple of more stars but as that isn't clear I can't understand WHY she remains where she does instead of walking away from the location? Why doesn't the dumb cop explain immediately about his gun instead of telling her his life story? IMPLAUSIBLE!

3.0 out of 5 stars maybe watch it once! 2 Jun 2011
By zombie1
i first bought this film when i was out a few months ago topping up the dvd shelf. it looked and sounded quite good and was quite cheap so thought why not. but now i think why bother! i watched it several times to see if it will grow but shame to say it hasnt and maybe i shoulda watched it just the once! it just did not make sense to me! why was she seeing those ghosts! why did the killer not blow up when she perol bombed his car! you could see him clearly driving it at the time it caught fire but when she opened the door he was nowhere! then suddenly behind her! not even a burn on him!. i watched the alternative endings on the bonus feautures and dont know why they did not chose one of them as the ending as it woulda been (not much) a better ending. just did not make sense to me and think the person who made it just lost interest and could'nt be bothered in how it turned out! worth a watch but prepare to be a bit dissapointd. like i was!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love and respect the killer in this one 23 Mar 2010
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.
