Better Then The Original, But That's Not Really Saying Much
26 July 2010 | by (Bayside, San Andreas) – See all my reviews

The first Rest Stop is cinema at it's worst, so when the sequel came along, I expected the same thing, horror trying to be art. Well, to say least, I was a little surprised.

The story follows the brother of the man killed in the first part, he decides to go to California to look for his brother and his girlfriend. He brings his girlfriend and geeky friend. Soon, the come upon the rest stop where the two people perished, and soon the same supernatural crap that happened in the first one starts happening to them.

First of all, this film actually wallows in the supernatural crap, so it's not annoying or confusing like in the first. The acting is nothing to scream about, it's not horrible. And while the story is still stupid and confusing (not to mention full of plot holes) it's still entertaining to a certain degree.

In the end, you can skip it, unless you REALLY loved the first.
