Critic Reviews for The Road
If it's patchy and derivative it also has a compelling, soapy undertow that kept me watching.
[Laranas] delivers a maximum of suspense and horror, working wonders with a small budget.
This philosophical film helps elevate the film above the usual scared-teenager shocker although, sometimes, the film ignores the bread-and-butter demands of the genre.
The film's three-pronged narrative does a fair job of laying a spooky groundwork for the revelatory emotional sadism that lies behind most acts of evil; it just takes a bit of clunky exposition to get there.
A powerfully atmospheric blend of ghostly encounters, horrific situations and missing-persons mysteries from the Philippine director Yam Laranas.
Audience Reviews for The Road
A brilliant and terrifying horror film that reveals the story at a perfect pace. The script is great and very interesting. A highly disturbing and very thought provoking film. 91/100
Has a great story some great scares and an added cultural benefit which avoids the generic US scary movie.
THE ROAD is pretty disappointing at best. Just a total bore that kept reminding of other far better films.
