Fango got the first look at DVD art as well as the specs for REST STOP, the debut feature film from Warner Home Video's new Raw Feed genre banner. This direct-to-DVD effort, shot on a budget of roughly $5 million and written/directed by John (SUPERNATURAL) Shiban, is slated to hit stores October 17 in both R-rated and unrated editions.
Newcomer Jaimie Alexander headlines this back-to-basics slasher opus that follows a young woman's horrific experiences at a lonesome roadside rest stop, where those she encounters cannot be trusted and a killer in a yellow pickup prowls the area. A pair of Joeys round out the cast: First up, you've got Joey Mendicino from MTV's THAT 70's HOUSE as the heroine's boyfriend, and then there's Joey Lawrence, a dude who, let's face it, is most recognizable from the sitcom BLOSSOM, as a cop.
REST STOP, the first in a trinity of fright features to shoot for the Feed label this year, will be accompanied by two alternate endings and a trailer on the R-rated disc. The unrated edition will contain those extras along with the bonus features Scotty's Home Movies, a twisted look through the eyes of the film's malformed titular character from the film, and On the Bus, a close-up look at the villain's grisly activities, for those riding the high of the recent torture-horror trend. Retail price for each version will be $24.98.
It's also worth noting that REST STOP will also make its premiere on the Sci Fi Channel in early October (date to be determined).
