    I've been in the mood for a good thriller for a while now...and I may have finally found one...
    And I'm also a fan of Steve Zahn...so I think I have a winner.

    Fun stuff. John Dahl knows the proper way to make this kind of movie. Not that it's all that similar to Jeepers Creepers, but it points out how that film could have been much more effective than the stupid movie that became.

    A well put together movie, with a great tone throughout. The final set piece is a little bit more elaborate than necessary, but the tension remains high, however.
    Did anyone else think that Ted Levine (Buffalo Bill from SitL) was the voice?

    I can't recommend it, but I can't active dissuade anyone from seeing it. It just didn't push any buttons for me.

    I loved Steve Zahn, great performance.
    The corn field chase was pretty tense.
    I realy liked the way it ended, as it's not the ususal, riddiling the slasher with bullets and he can't be killed.
    It was just an average guy chasing the kids.
    A VERY nice change.
    Is anybody else hoping for a sequel???

    I don't really get out much to the theater to see movies.
    But I have been checking on the Box Office and JOYRIDE has moved down to 12th place
    Conclusion - I am guessing the DVD is not that far away
    Regards,
    Ricky

    I thought it was a great & fun ride. Very intense,funny & exciting. The direction was right on & made my heart skip a few beats at certain parts. The acting was all dead on & delivered...especially that one guy(forgot his name) who played the main guys trouble making brother.
    As for the trucker......While it may seem illogical that he could know all that he does ect. Thats what makes it scarier because we DON'T know & he some how can get info on people. So don't think about that to hard & just let the atmosphere take over & enjoy ride.
    .....& he's still out there. So there cross country trip from hell isn't over yet! Unless he thinks there dead & goes on to chase someone else?
    + when it was all over late the night i saw it. I ended up speeding at least 10-20miles over the speed limit all the way home & was to afraid to stop! That's never happened to me before. Usually when i see a creepy movie, i'm ok after it & drive normaly + most movies today aren't that creepy. Yet this was differnet & had me on edge after.
    ***1/2 to ****, i can't decide right now,but it was a really creepy & awsome movie.
    Check it out!!!!
