Two things: the teaser poster for the upcoming direct-to-DVD horror sequel “Joy Ride 2” has arrived (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below), and the title has been changed from “Joy Ride 2: End of the Road” to “Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead” as per the poster. Eh, I kinda like this one better, anyway. In the sequel, serial killer trucker Rusty Nail returns to terrorize more road-weary kids. Stupid kids, don’t they ever learn? Avoid guys in trucks with names like “Rusty Nail”!
In the film four young adults (Melissa, Bobby, Kayla, Nik) on the road to a concert in Las Vegas take a lethal side trip — and when their beater of a car breaks down, they make the fatal error of stealing a car belonging to depraved, homicidal, sadistic, maniacal, sociopathic trucker Rusty Nail.
Rusty Nail puts nail to forehead October 2008.
