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.

Although the story doesn't always quite hold, "The Road" is still a satisfyingly creepy film.

Call it a haircut of Psycho with ectoplasmic additives, The Road still has a whispering menace and visual grandeur all its own.
