    As an Australian and very much a horror buff, I'm not being biased when I say that small production company Australian 'B' movies are *very* variable, especially horror films. Some are gems, some are very ordinary, and some are utter garbage. This is the latter. I didn't watch much of it, but it was *enough* to repulse me and clearly identify it as belonging to what is unofficially termed the 'torture porn' horror subgenre. 'Torture porn' describes films showing the graphic prolonged torture of kidnapped victims. Obviously pointless and unpleasant to all viewers except those who have already unwisely inflicted so many violent entertainments on themselves that they're ostensibly inured to it, and the seriously spiritually/mentally ill (yes there would be an overlap). Do yourself a favour and don't watch it.

    After seeing Mary and Max, which showed how good Australian cinema can be, No Through Road showed the other extreme of Australian cinema. Terribly amateur camera work, pacing, acting with no atmosphere, I unfortunately did not make it to the end (well only after skipping through :D ). Give this a wide berth.

    Actually wasn't that bad. I felt all the things that annoyed me were then shown to be the point by the end of the movie. If that makes any sense, I don't wanna go into detail. If u r at all interested, check it out.

    The premise may have actually been a good one in better hands...it was just cheesy and not believable at all...not done well

    In the ostensible vein of "Straw Dogs", "No Through Road" asks the audience to put their collective brain on hold and not think terribly hard about what's going on in the story.
