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.

This low-budget shocker eventually pays off, displaying just enough narrative ingenuity to compensate for a cinematically crude and logistically sketchy deployment of the requisite blood-and-guts mayhem.

Laranas definitely has the mind and vision for good horror, but still has a bit to go before he can be called a 'master of the genre.'

While effectively moody...proves overlong for optimal shock value, with entirely too many dull stretches along the way.

Genre fans beware -- 'The Road' proves a bumpy ride, slow-going, monotonous and, the most unforgivable sin of all, not in the least scary.

... Enough rattling thrills for the date-night crowd, and enough story and character for older film buffs to chew on. The ride home afterwards might require your high beams.

Heavy on atmosphere, but light on substance.

For a spell, the film gets by on its unpretentious flair for atmosphere, even its disconcerting nonsensicality.
