[BD Review] ‘The Road’ Is A Chilling And Effective Ride

3_The_road_050312

Opening today (in limited theaters, VOD, Netflix and more) from Freestyle Releasing is Yam Laranas’ R-rated Filipino horror The Road, a supernatural chiller that’s a trilogy all within one movie! It’ll play in select markets including: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Honolulu, Jacksonville, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C. If you don’t live in one of those, you’re gona want to hit up iTunes or Netflix, because it’s a damn good movie.

Speaking of horrors, there’s a number of them. The bloody bag used in the promos figures heavily, and the film isn’t short on brutality. But one of the film’s most effective and terrifying moments takes place in broad daylight in an unassuming shot. The matter-of-factness with which the violence is treated renders it almost as horrifying as the shot where Leatherface slams the metal door shut in ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.

    I’m really excited to see this, but are we sure it’s coming to Netflix today? I hav’nt seen it on there or any other list of movies streaming soon. I hope so.

    Hmmm, let me check on Netflix. That’s what we were told.

    I know for sure it’s on iTunes, just checked over there.

    Sounds cool. If this is on Netflix streaming, I definitely would watch it right now.

    This is not on Netflix, unless if it’s listed under a different name than “the road”.
