Rest Stop is a suspenseful horror movie from the Raw Feed Series, released in 2006. Directed by John Shiban, the film follows a young couple on a road trip that takes a terrifying turn when they stop at a desolate rest stop in the middle of nowhere. The couple, Nicole (played by Jaimie Alexander) and Jess (played by Joey Mendicino), are driving to Hollywood, hoping to make it big as musicians. Along the way, they stop to take a break at a rest stop that is eerily deserted. While Jess goes to use the restroom, Nicole explores the area and discovers a mysterious vehicle parked nearby with blood stains on the side.

When Jess returns, they find that their car won't start, leaving them stranded at the rest stop. As night falls and they settle in for the night, they are soon confronted by a group of psychopaths who seem intent on torturing and killing them. With no phone or means of escape, Nicole and Jess must fight for their survival against their brutal captors.

As the story unfolds, the film reveals a twisted and macabre backstory about the rest stop, and the individuals who have been drawn to it over the years. The movie explores themes of isolation, madness, and the depravity of the human psyche, as the couple faces unimaginable horrors at the hands of their captors.

The performances of the lead actors, Jaimie Alexander and Joey Mendicino, are superb, with both bringing intensity and emotional depth to their roles. The supporting cast, including Michael Childers, Jennifer Cormack, and Gary Entin, also deliver strong performances, adding to the overall sense of dread and suspense in the film.

The cinematography in Rest Stop is impressive, with sweeping shots of the desolate rest stop and the surrounding landscape, and close-ups of the characters that underscore their fear and desperation. The use of sound and music is also masterful, heightening the tension and adding to the atmosphere of horror that permeates the film.

Overall, Rest Stop is a well-crafted and chilling horror film that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. It is a testament to the power of suspense and the human ability to withstand the most harrowing of experiences. The movie received an Unrated rating upon release, indicating its graphic content and ability to generate fear and unease. For fans of horror cinema, Rest Stop is a must-see.
