Performers, Cast and Crew:
The sadistic and shadow-shrouded truck driver Rusty Nails has hijacked the CB airwaves once again, brutally reclaiming the road as his personal playground of slaughter. When four friends call out for help after their car breaks down during a cross country trip to Las Vegas, it looks as though professional mutilator Rusty has found himself some new playmates. In this high-octane sequel, Kyle Schmid (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE) heads a cast which includes genre regulars Nicki Aycox (JEEPERS CREEPERS II) and Nick Zano (FINAL DESINATION 4).
Description by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment:
Fasten your seatbelts for the no-holds-barred, unrated sequel to the white-knuckle box-office hit Joy Ride! With "twice the mayhem and action [of] the original," Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead "takes road rage to a whole new level!" (DreadCentral.com)
When four friends embark on a road trip to Vegas looking for fun and a few cheap thrills, they have no idea that they're about to fall into a blood-drenched charnel house of tension, torture, and the darkest depths of pure primal fear! After their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, they must find a way back to civilization. But their plan soon arouses the malice of Rusty Nail - a murderous, vengeful trucker with an insatiable appetite for gruesome mutilation and sadistic pain - and he'll stop at nothing to ensure they pay their toll...one body part at a time!
