A well-shot, multi-dimensional, and unexpectedly cerebral little horror story.

A disturbing and unsettling bit of word to the wise that sometimes the unsolvable should remain unsolved...

Clever and packed with smart characters.

In the end, YellowBrickRoad is just another pathway for people who go into the woods, go crazy, and get killed.

YellowBrickRoad not only offers a mystery with no solution (which isn't such a terrible thing by itself), but also a story with no clear sense of purpose.

Despite us tagging along the trail for days, we feel closer to the landscape than to the characters.

"Yellowbrickroad" is without personality. It's competently made, but the cast and direction are just bland.

As cheap horror fare goes, YellowBrickRoad emphasizes imagination over gore. This is good, because the gore here is somewhat laughable, while the imagination is just creepy enough to be effective.

We arrive at something resembling a mid-'90s Marilyn Manson music video. Just bizarre.

The filmmakers create a mythology that goes unexplained, raise questions that go unanswered, and generally go out of their way to confound and frustrate their audience.

Not only are the movie's key questions left unanswered, they are left almost entirely unexplored once the cast begins their journey on the trail.

Up until the reveal, yellowbrickroad is very good indeed. Afterward, it's fine, if flawed.

The film is caught in the fatal demographic desert between the Scream and Baghead crowds -- neither funny nor quirky enough to sustain interest during its long march.

Co-writer/directors Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton miss as many opportunities as they develop here, but they maintain the mystery and ratchet up suspense like seasoned pros.

Unsettling and quite unlike any other horror flick you're likely to have seen.

Underwhelming finish explains zilch, but good perfs, atmospherics and use of backwoods locations make Yellowbrickroad an intriguing cipher.
