If you haven’t seen director Yam Laranas’ supremely terrifying genre flick “The Road” in theaters, then you’re in luck: One of my Top 10 Films of 2011 is getting a one week extension. Which, of course, means that you have one seven more day to atone for not having seen the movie. However, making the journey to one of the cities you see below might be difficult, though the distributors seem to be sympathetic to your plight. To help those who don’t live anywhere near a scheduled screening, “The Road” is available on VOD, iTunes, and Amazon.
Late to the party? Here’s a nifty plot-based cheat sheet:
A twelve year old cold case is reopened when three teens are missing in an abandoned road. In the course of the investigation, deeper and gruesome stories of abduction and murders are discovered. After more than two decades, the secrets of the haunted road may finally be revealed.
If you require further information, everything you need to know is contained within my review. A list of theaters carrying “The Road” can be found beneath the red band trailer.
