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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A Surprisingly Incredible Follow-up to a Great 1st Film
12 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

With a basically unknown cast, the fact that they changed rusty, and the whole "straight to DVD" thing, I went into this movie expecting to be repulsed. I was anything but repulsed. It starts out by creeping you out, then making you laugh so hard that you cry, and then just full out blows your mind with the elaborateness. The actors need high recognition because (i will probably be slammed for this) i think they did a way better job than Paul walker, Steve Zahn, and lee lee sobieski. This movie had nothing going for it, and it could quite possibly be the most amazing direct to DVD movie I've ever seen. So, basically, an awesome movie, 5 incredible actors, and some of the most elaborately sadistic scenes ever filmed. Give it a chance, even if your not a fan of the first one, this one is still great. It locks you in from the beginning and never lets go. i give it a PERFECT 10!
