Fango just got ahold of a synopsis and cast information for REST STOP 2, the sequel to last year’s Raw Feed direct-to-DVD title that set records for Warner Home Entertainment. The story takes place a year after the events of the first film, when Tom (Richard Tillman), brother of the original’s ill-fated Jesse, returns home from military service to learn that Jesse and his girlfriend Nicole have been missing. Joined by pals Marilyn (Jessie Ward) and Jared (Graham Norris), Tom traces the couple’s trail, which leads to the rest stop where they were terrorized by the evil driver in the yellow pickup truck. The psycho (Brionne Davis) reappears to kidnap and torture Tom while Marilyn and Jared encounter the weird Winnebago family, as well as the ghost of Nicole (Julie Mond, taking over for Jaimie Alexander). Joey Mendocino reprises the Jesse role, while veteran actor Steve (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS) Railsback also makes an appearance.
The sequel is being directed by Shawn Papazian, a producer on the first STOP and the other Raw Feed flicks, with the company’s John Shiban (who encores as scriptwriter), Tony Krantz and Daniel Myrick producing. Jas Shelton, cinematographer on the direct-to-DVD WALKING TALL follow-ups, is shooting REST STOP 2, with veteran Myke Michaels (whose credits range from the Cinemax CREATURE FEATURES films to the upcoming INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL) supervising the makeup.
