Editorial Reviews

Jess is at the wheel. Nicole rides shotgun. And at the end of the road stretching before them is glittering, glamorous Hollywood. They're on a road trip, all right...straight to hell. When the runaway lovers pause at an abandoned rest stop, Jess disappears. And someone else appears - someone with his own demented sense of fun. With drills. Staple guns. Box cutters. All the tearing, grinding, ripping tools you need to hew wood. Or metal. Or people. Especially young, pretty people just like Nicole.Raw fear rules in Rest Stop, the first film from Raw Feed, the newest brand name in horror, sci-fi and thrillers. Director John Shiban, writer and executive producer of The X-Files and Supernatural, keeps the terrors and twists coming, each out-shocking the last. Stop. Stay awhile. But don't expect to rest.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fast-Forward Time January 12, 2007
By Jason72
Format:DVD
I like horror, no, I love horror. My vast collection is comprised of 98% horror, a good deal of them are low budget schlockfests. Old films, films with no budget, etc. They have an excuse for being bad, and thus, are "so bad theyre good".

This film has no excuse whatsoever for being as bad as it is, except for an idiotic script and director. This film had the money, the technology, the time, and the eye-candy to be good. It's a simple premise for a film, nigh impossible to screw up. "Rest Stop" is one big screw up.

It's expected that when a movie begins with a road trip, there will be an almost mandatory music video montage. Acoustic guitar will play, scenes of the happy travelers cruising along in their car past farms, cities, etc. will play out. They will fumble with the radio and make silly faces, smoke dope, laugh etc. The director chose to up that count a bit, and as a result several times in this film the viewer is sitting around watching what is effect a meaningless music video.

The girl picks up a bottle of whisky and starts pugging away, and thus begins the next full-song, music video showcase. Shots of her swigging, crying, throwing things, etc, to the sound of the music.

Fast-Forward time, several times this happens.

Long, drawn out sequences of characters crying, sappy music blaring, for what seems like an eternity. Everything in this movie is drawn out far longer than it needs to be, hence the title of my review. I ended up just fast-forwarding 5 minutes of what needed to be a one or two minute scene. We get it, the character is sad, they are crying. Move on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain bad November 17, 2006
Format:DVD
I didn't expect much out of Rest Stop, and I was right to. Not only does Rest Stop follow many of the cliche slasher formulas, it features one of the dumbest heroines to ever grace a direct to DVD horror movie, who for some reason seems to keep running back to the place where all the terror started. Said girl makes the mistake of using an ungodly dirty rest stop to do her business, and then gets chased by an insane trucker who apparently has some sort of supernatural powers. Later on, she hitches a ride with a family that has a mutant baby. And just when you think the unintentional comedy stops there, Joey Lawrence (don't give me Joseph Lawrence, your forever known as Joey, deal with it or dance away) stops by as an ill-fated park ranger. There's a heaping amount of decent gore effects, but the sheer stupidity of the characters just makes you scratch your head and wonder. Had Rest Stop not taken itself so seriously and had instead gone the horror/tongue-in-cheek route (a la Slither), maybe this wouldn't have been so bad. But alas, this is best to be avoided, or maybe seen so that you can have a good laugh.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tinkle Tantrums October 18, 2006
Format:DVD
They say the Direct-to-DVD movie is coming of age. Where it once was a dumping ground for low budget losers and deceiving imitations it has supposedly achieved a more resonant form of quality. That's what they say.

John Shiban cut his entree into film as writer-producer of the X Files. You may remember his newborn son cast as baby William in a few episodes.

In Rest Stop Mr. Shiban has an unflinching desire to continuously display the atrocities in a filthy and disgustingly dirty ladies room. The fact that the lady in question prefers this to a short jaunt in the woods is ridiculous. No woman would be caught dead or even think of entering this place. Enough already.

This is a sick slasher sort of film that portrays brutality and violence but retrieves nothing for the viewer. The one star is for Jaimie Alexander who is obviously a fine actress trying to work her craft in a poor production.

This is pure junk. The three alternate endings are junk.

Mr. Shiban should return to his roots and try again.

2.0 out of 5 stars A stop to stay away from October 22, 2006
Format:DVD
While it would be impossible to say that this horror film is the most aweful film ever, it would not be to far from the truth saying that it is a terrible one. It starts out promising with a dumb woman in a rest stop getting terrorized by an unseen stalker and then it landslides downhill from there. None of the acting is really that good but if I had to pick the person who did alright it would be Jaimie Alexander, the protagonist. Of course, as expected with any truly bad horror film, her character is as dumb as the cardboard box she was crafted from. Everyone else, including the all but lost Joey Lawrence, are damn near pathetic. The gore is ok in this film... although a little over the top in some points. The story is one that could have (and damnit... it should have been) cut down to an anthology length (this would fit in sort of well with the Masters of Horror series) and it probably would have been a lit better. As it is, the whole stretch of being at one Rest Stop is a bit dull after a while... even when she manages to venture out into a camper van full of really wacky nut cases. Top this lame puppy off with a dark (but incredibly unrealistic) ending and you have a truly low end attempt at being a scary halloween flick.
