A group of hotheaded street racers are on their way to the Road Rally 1000. As they drive through a desolate shortcut on the way to the race, a man starts tracking, teasing and torturing them until the end of the road.
College student Lewis decides to drive across the country to see Venna, a friend who doesn't know that Lewis is interested in her romantically. Unfortunately for his plans, Lewis gets saddled with his raucous-spirited older brother, Fuller, whose on-the-road pranks get the brothers and Venna sucked into a nightmare when a psychotic truckdriver takes offense.Written by

[8:01]Fuller Steve Zahn asks Lewis "the blinker?" asking about Venna whom they've not yet picked up while looking at the ticket Lewis got. This may have been an intentional play on words, since Lewis got cited for having a taillight out, and "blinker" is slang for "turn signal". He asks "the blinker" while looking at the ticket so it looks at first as though he is asking Lewis, "you got a ticket for the blinker?". See more »
[30:22] Fuller tells Lewis that he could have been thrown back in jail for what they did. There's nothing illegal about they did. See more »
Deleted scene After 'Rusty Nail' drives away in his truck after almost crushing Lewis and Fuller in their car, the two look at each other, and begin to laugh timidly. Then Fuller, slowly steps out of the car and screams at the top of his lungs. 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 ****.
