Joy Ride (movie #47)
Man,Ted Levine has a creepy voice. I didn't know who he was when I first saw this movie, so I only knew that they got a guy with a creepy voice to play the Truck Driver in this movie, but now that I've seen other movies with him in them (and watched Monk, where he plays a cop) his voice can still give me chills, which I think is a pretty big achievement. This movie is about two guys on a road trip who intelligently decide to play a prank on a trucker over the CB radio, and then the embarrassed trucker decides to follow them around and enact his revenge. It's a pretty good time. there's not much of a plot, but that works in the movie's favor. Sometimes simple is scarier.
