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

During the course of the movie, watch the LED signal strength indicator lights on the brothers' CB radio. The first four indicator lights change colors in nearly every scene, including bright green, dark green, yellow, red, and crimson. This is obviously intentional and not a series of continuity errors. In fact, it's an accurate portrayal. CB's with an LED signal meter do in fact go from amber to green to red, with weakest signals being amber and, and medium strength being green, and red for VERY close signals. However, on AM they do not bounce while the signal is being received, this is only happens on side-band (USB or LSB). See more »
In the scene where Fuller and Lewis walk naked into the truck stop it is supposed to be set in Nebraska. Yet when they are walking into the truck stop you can clearly see mountains in the background. 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 ****.
