20th Century Fox Home Entertainment just unveiled the trailer for "Joy Ride: Road Kill," the third installment in the franchise that stars Jesse Hutch, Ben Hollingsworth, Kirsten Prout, Dean Armstrong, and Ken Kirzinger as Rusty Nail. Check it out below.
Plot: The nightmare begins when a group of young street racers take a desolate shortcut on their way to the Road Rally 1000. But a chance encounter with Rusty soon turns deadly as he stalks, taunts, and tortures his next victims with deranged delight.
The new movie is directed by Declan O'Brien (Wrong Turn 5) and is heading straight to DVD/Blu-ray on June 3rd.
The first Joy Ride was suspensful, but I always thought it was inane to have Ted Levine only provide the voice for the killer and towards the end some fat f*ck is talking with Levine's voice dubbed over.
Levine has a very distinctive voice and I was expecting to see him as the creepy psycho killer much like Jame Gumb AKA Buffalo Bill.
The first movie was poorly-made and you can tell because it had some five alternate-edit endings, none of which were any good or gave the film a serviceable conclusion.
"Levine has a very distinctive voice and I was expecting to see him as the creepy psycho killer much like Jame Gumb AKA Buffalo Bill."
That's true but the intent of the movie was to scare people by making them think anyone can be a road-raging psychopath, that the everyday guy you flip off for driving too slow can hunt you down and murder you. That was the film's horror appeal, not dragging out some cliched, outrageous monster like Jamie Gumm. Or Hannibal Lector.
The fear was in discovering the horror in the mundane experiences of ordinary life, which is what good horror should do if it aims to deeply scare audiences instead of eviscerating their complacency with gore and bizarre villains.
That's why people like Gacy, Bundy, Gein and Dahmer are such terrifying aspects of modern American pop-cultural mythology: because they were so outwardly NORMAL in their day to day interactions, and thus one of the best reasons why all the villains in all of Harris' books aren't very frightening.
I have the DVD but I haven't watched it yet. Heard its good. The book it's based off is kinda crazy. The guy basically gets in touch with Gacy and is Pen pals for years and actually visited him for research on the book.
He also visited many other Serial killers but none as successful (in speaking to) as Gacy. Anyways, From what I've read it drove him crazy and he killed himself.
It was just very underwhelming and anti-climactic to see the fat dude at the end. When he got to their motel room, didn't Steve Zahn or Paul Walker hit him with something and he fell backwards and cut his neck on the broken window glass and died?
There was all this buildup with the killer and it amounted to nothing.
@Tan: no, never seen it or read about it. I'm not much into apprehended serial killers except for their psychology. I like the ones who were never caught. The mysterious cases that have eluded law enforcement authorities.
As for Gacy, he was a demented, tortured man, no doubt, and definitely frightening. A pure case of evil if there ever was one, and a reminder that anyone, even the most respected members of society can be proverbial sheep in wolves' clothing.
@Deaftone: no, none of them were any better. The film had a decent premise, and it started off well enough, but by the middle act it was dragging and seemed to have nowhere to go. The conclusion left much to desire, and even though I desperately watched all of the endings, I couldn't find one that made the film's end any better.
A wasted opportunity and a disappointment since so much could have been done with the premise, and even ATM was a better waste of my time.
