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

In one scene, a seemingly maniacal ICE truck pulls up to a gas station that the brothers have pulled up to. In Duel (1971) (released the same year as the car they were driving; a 1971 Chrysler Newport), a likewise maniacal truck pulls up to our hero (David Mann) and a small billboard for ICE is visible in the background.

When the ice truck pulls into the convenience store, the rear axle is about 3 feet from the end of the truck, as is usually the case for any kind of box truck. When Rusty Nail drives his truck through it, the axle is pushed to the very end of the trucks frame, presumably to allow Rusty Nails truck to drive through it. See more »

Have you guys named it yet?
Not yet, but we were thinking about "Tad or Lewis's Shitty Newport".

Sometimes, the Earth changes directions and I like a film such as this
This turned out to be one the few movies I liked that was geared toward a teen audience. Steve Zahn and Paul Walker weren't natural in the roles as brothers, which embodied the very nature of their relationship. While the story became rather convoluted near the end, Rusty Nail's voice and detached presence brought some actual fear to the heart of the viewer. While the sound editing made this film, the relatively simple yet complex plot really turned this film into a satisfying movie experience.
