We arrive at something resembling a mid-'90s Marilyn Manson music video. Just bizarre.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 1, 2011
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.

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

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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 35/100
June 2, 2011
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.

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.
June 2, 2011
"Yellowbrickroad" is without personality. It's competently made, but the cast and direction are just bland.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

It's rare these days to see a refreshing approach to backwoods horror, but YellowBrickRoad once again proves that there are still original and terrifying stories lurking in nature.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.

A well-shot, multi-dimensional, and unexpectedly cerebral little horror story.
August 31, 2011
Clever and packed with smart characters.
June 1, 2011
Up until the reveal, yellowbrickroad is very good indeed. Afterward, it's fine, if flawed.

September 3, 2012
A disturbing and unsettling bit of word to the wise that sometimes the unsolvable should remain unsolved...
June 3, 2011
Meticulously paced, methodical in the way it delivers its information, this film isn't so much scary as it is deeply disconcerting, everything moving towards a somewhat inevitable conclusion that had me nonetheless squirming.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 25, 2011
Unsettling and quite unlike any other horror flick you're likely to have seen.

July 6, 2010
Underwhelming finish explains zilch, but good perfs, atmospherics and use of backwoods locations make Yellowbrickroad an intriguing cipher.
