There is no reason for this movie to exist.
I know, most sequels can claim the same thing, but this enters in Die Hard 2 territory. Except we want to see Bruce Willis get into these situations. Do we really want to see C. Thomas Howell endure the same pain 15 years later?
Jim Halsey (Howell) is now a cop but he’s suspended for excessive force. He has PTSD — have you seen The Hitcher? — and decides to visit the man who helped save his life, Captain Esteridge, deep in the heart of Texas. His girlfriend Maggie (Kari Wuhrer) — who I shit you not has a crop dusting business — comes along and has no idea that her boyfriend once watched a love interest get torn in two by trucks. At least she flies an airplane into his truck.
As they drive, they see an RV with blood all over it. Jim refuses to stop and help anyone, even the man they see hitchhiking away played by Jake Busey. Before you know it, the same movie starts off, but takes the wild step of — spoilers! — killing off Jim halfway through the movie and having the son of Gary face off with the queen of Remote Control. At least she flies at airplane into his truck.
Louis Morneau not only directed Carnosaur 2, but he’d direct another on-the-road sequel, Joy Ride 2. This was written by Eric Red, Molly Meeker and producer Charles R. Meeker.
Thanks to Andrew Chamen for finding a typo.
Auto correct problems? has no idea that her boyfriend once wanted a love interest get torn in two by trucks. At least she flies at airplane into his truck. Should it be? has no idea that her boyfriend once watched a love interest get torn in two by trucks. At least she flies an airplane into his truck.
Just me not catching it, nor spell check. Thanks! I credited you for the fix!
