Tom is a charming, handsome, twenty-something U.S. Army soldier just arrived back home in Texas from a tour of duty overseas. His girlfriend Marilyn is a likeable, stunningly pretty, twenty-something blonde lady. During Tom's absence overseas, his younger brother Jesse, and his girlfriend Nicole, went on a road trip to California, but never returned. Tom and Marilyn immediately hit the road for California, accompanied by Tom's best pal, an uber-nerd named Jerry, who has a big crush on the missing Nicole.
As they're driving through the desert in California, they come across a remote gas station, staffed by the archetypal anti-social redneck guy (I was waiting for him to start sucking on a straw and playing a banjo, but no such luck). The creepy hillbilly says that he saw Nicole and Jesse passing through a year earlier, and gives them directions to a back road which is off-map. Soon afterwards Tom and Marilyn arrive at the titular rest stop, but Jerry gets left behind on the journey, having diverted to a mobile toilet with a bout of diarrhoea.
It's not long before a shadowy figure driving a white and yellow Ford pick up truck is brutalising Tom and Jerry, and when Marilyn comes out of the ladies restroom at the rest stop, both of her male companions have vanished...
This is an enjoyable hybrid of the horror and thriller genres. It has elements of great movies like Breakdown (Kurt Russell), Roadkill, Wolf Creek, Wrong Turn and Duel (Denis Weaver), and although it's not quite in the same league as those flicks, it's still an effective chiller. The Driller Killer style torture scenes with a drill need a fairly strong stomach to endure.

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.

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!

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.
