"Now you know how it feels to be the punchline". This horror flick is about a young man, his high school sweetheart and his ex-con brother embark on a road trip. After playing a cruel trick with the CB on truck driver "Rusty Nail", they finds themselves fighting for their lives against the psychotic trucker. I thought this movie was going to be bad with stupid and annoying characters and horrible writing but this movie didn't suck. I enjoyed this movie and I felt sorry for the tucker even when he did try to kill some people.

Lacked interesting leads and a better history about the psychotic truck driver who fancies playing his own pranks. Leelee Sobieski's character or acting (maybe both) was dull, Walker's character not heroic enough and Steve Zahn was somewhat appealing though. This felt like a poor-mans Cape Fear. Soundtrack kept it going but the plot somewhat annoying.

Pretty typical action / thriller with some hot, young actors of the day. It's all by-the-books here, kind of reminds me of The Hitcher. It passes the time, nothing more.

A Personal Favourite

I admire this film for its great ability to balance humour and terror. Steve Zahn, Paul Walker, and Leelee Sobieski did a really good job. There were believable as a screw-up, a good guy at heart, and a girl next door, respectively. Steve Zahn made me laugh so much due to the things he says and his facial expressions. Paul Walker is eye candy. Leelee Sobieski manages to put some heart into the picture. If it weren't for those three, this would've been a typical slasher movie with no substance. Because the three of them are so charismatic, the audiences are able to care more for the characters the actors are portraying. I did like the twists because they felt natural (we all experience paranoia when we know we did something wrong). I always recommend this to friends and it never lets them ...

4/4
