While driving to Las Vegas for the bachelor party of her sister Melissa and her fiancé Bobby, Kayla stops the car in the gas station to meet her date, Nik, a guy she met on the internet. Nik convinces her to take a secondary road under the protest of Bobby but the car breaks down. They find a house in the middle of nowhere and decide to take the car parked in the house's garage to the next city, and return with a rented car to pay for the damages provoked by Nik; Melissa leaves her cell number. However, they discover that the owner of the place is the sadistic truck driver Rusty Nail and they have to pay a high price for what they did.Written by

Joy Ride : Dead Ahead is another sequel made straight-to-DVD which tries to exploit the medium success of its (mediocre) first part.This common practice may seems mercenary,but I'm the first one in accepting that a lot of this sequels have result surprisingly entertaining and satisfactory,like for example,Wrong Turn 2 : Dead End or Species : The Awakening.Unfortunately,Joy Ride : Dead Ahead belongs to the group of crappy sequels thanks to its tedious screenplay and disgusting characters.This movie also looses the opportunity of showing brutal and graphic violence to at least make it watchable.But the violence in this movie is totally insipid.From the first minutes,it's obvious director Louis Morneau (whose filmography includes intolerable craps like Bats and Carnosaur 2) makes his best effort in making the villain a frightening and threatening person but he does not bring life to the character...he is just a psycho who kills people because the screenplay says so.The "heroes" of this movie result totally irritating.Their hateful attitude made me want to wish they all died.The original Joy Ride had been a mediocre film but at least,it had had well done action scenes,some good actors (Steve Zahn and Leelee Sobieski) and an ingenious ending.Now,the sequel does not offer any good aspect and it results a very crappy and enormously boring film.My recommendation is to skip this film.
