Oh come on it's not that bad... But "ends here".
27 September 2009 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

This follow up for the original "Rest Stop" is fast paced, entertaining, humorous (Jared taking a crap and being ambushed by a truck by later getting a crap shower! in the likes of "Slumdog Millonaire" or the having sex with a ghost scene), and gory at some points.

The plot twist that worked in the original tries to repeat the success in this sequel but it didn't make an impact at all.

The whole explanation towards the legend of death is pretty interesting and gruesome if you take in account the opening murder. The creepy twins, the midget, the sexual sadistic mother, and the preacher; now that's material for a b-direct to video sequel. The gore is just good and it's all about eye gouging and stabbings. The acting is just regular by the standards of these kind of movies.

The lead actress is pure hotness! Most of the characters are likable, heck even Jared. I liked how it kept connected with the events of the original.The "ends here" line was pure gold and gave a darker tone to the movie.

Watch it if you're fan of direct to video horror. It has the "b" feeling all over it.

The ending left me wondering "what the hell?!". And I'm sure a sequel is on it's way. But for the better it should "ends here".
