Table Rock is depicted as being bigger than it is in real life. In reality it is no more than an encampment for oil workers. See more »
Joy Ride is a good scary movie. What makes the film scary is the lack of a monster, the villain is a real crazy guy who can easily find you.John Dahl makes the film suspenseful with it's dark tone and swift camera angles and the cast all play their roles effectively. I give it *** out of ****.
