All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The debut feature from writer-director Nicholas Smith, who surely will go on to more compelling work.

Top Critic

"Munger Road" does an efficient, skillful job of audience manipulation using the techniques of darkness and vulnerability, and the truth that a horror not seen is almost always scarier than one you can see.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

Using the less-is-more approach, Nicholas Smith builds the film to an effective and suspenseful climax. But then, Munger Road stops abruptly and annoyingly with a "to be continued." Really?

Full Review… | September 27, 2012

I felt like I'd wasted almost an hour-and-a-half of my life on a film that wasn't even going to bother giving me a complete story.

Audience Reviews for Munger Road

Following along with the same urban legend premise as the not-so-impressive Fingerprints, Munger Road toes the line between serial kill/slasher, supernatural, and found-footage horror films. Munger Road develops some decent suspense, but its main problem is that it ends with "To Be Continued," a promise that a relatively independent horror film cannot fulfill upon like a television series....


This is an Actual Road near Bartlett, Illinois and it is also where it was filmed, local legend says it is haunted and people actually do the whole baby powder thing in real life...
I Like movies that take something that is real, and incorporate it into a movie, it seems Munger Rd and the forest right next to it in real life have some eerie history, a woman was found raped/murdered in the 80's in a field next to the Railroad Crossing (Close By to the west, on the southern side) , and a man was also found murdered in 2000 in that same forest.. The Railroad Crossings most common story is that a school bus got stuck on the Railway Tracks and a Train came, and killed everybody on the bus... so people visit the crossing, put baby powder on their cars,(to recreate snow like it was supposedly on the day this school bus got hit. too see the handprints of the children pushing their vehicle of the tracks out of harms way.

Really interesting story, would of been better if it didn't add the whole killer thing into it though, would of loved it too of kept to the paranormal aspect of it.


munger road is creepy and scary movie that was shot near st charles ill where on the night of the eve of the annual scarecrow festival the chief of the st charles police played by bruce davison and another cop search for a killer that has escaped from a prison is belived to be headed that way on they must find him before the festival starts up also 4 teenagers are headed to munger road a road that many people believe that is haunted due to either young girl that was killed and or a bus full of kids that were all killed by a train stuck on the train tracks and the teenagers are trying to get proof that munger road is haunted in any way this movie was filmed not far from where i live at and after i saw this i wanted to see the story about munger road and it is listed as of the haunted places here in illinois i also throught this movie was a cross between HALLOWEEN and the blair witch project this was a very creepy and scary movie and just in time for HALLOWEEN to and if you like these kind of movies then this one is for you if its playing in your area see it how see it during the day time and don't see it alone
