After their car breaks down in the desert, four friends try to find their way back to civilization while trying to escape Rusty Nail's bloody wrath.
Rusty Nails is a trucker. The main villain of this story. With a suitably dark voice for the role. With a somewhat psychotic personality. Also with an apparent and highly unnecessary need to torture and/or decapitate people with his truck. And when these four aforementioned teens actually steal his car, a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle... well then you know they might be off to a bad start here...
The final scene where the truck goes off a cliff is suitable brutal, and the car's beautiful, Kyle Schmid and Nicki Aycox's acting in particular is too. Impressive ability to change with the story.
It's horror, it really is, and I love this dusty desert road drip vibe too, though the thing about just casually stealing a car in the first place ? Hmm? Really?! Only in America. I hope.
