| Going to the head
Familiar faces Amy Johnson and Jerry O'Connell star in this precursor to WRONG TURN. A car full of young people find themselves fighting for their lives against shadowy figures at a rural rest stop (hence the title). There are some very unpleasant moments in this episode, so the weak of heart should beware. O'Connell plays a hitchhiker, and it is evident he is "off" from the moment he joins our merry little band of 20-somethings. The ending, which I must admit is pretty depressing, holds a major shocker. A surprisingly well-crafted thriller for a low-budget series, and a perfect introduction to this show. As with all other episodes in the series, Henry Rollins in a tight black T-shirt solemnly intones a few words at the beginning and end. And depending on your mood, this blue-collar, muscle-bound answer to Rod Serling may have you rolling with laughter.
