Some extremely good news for US horror fans this morning: According to director Yam Laranas, his entertaining 2011 genre flick “The Road” has been acquired by Freestyle Releasing for distribution here in the US. What does that mean for you? Well, apparently the film will receive a limited theatrical release in over 25 markets, which is great news for those of us who are anxious to see it on the big screen. However, if you can’t make it to the theaters, the film will receive a “day and date” release on VOD. Either way, you win.
Here’s what this creepy little flick is all about:
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.
“The Road” arrives on May 11th, 2012. If you have the opportunity to check it out, I strongly recommend that you do so. Want to know why I love the film so much? Take a few minutes to read through my review. Alternatively, you can watch the trailer embedded below.
