Released through The Collective’s home-video partnership with Vivendi Universal, YellowBrickRoad–as well as the other titles in the Bloody Disgusting series–features unrated content, bonus features and special packaging. Called “one helleva wild ride,” this is one horror flick that brings terror to a new level.
“Filmmakers Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton have given us YellowBrickRoad, the surreal story of the inescapable and terrifying insanity that accompanies getting lost.
In the fall of 1940, the entire population of Friar, New Hampshire–all 572 of them–abandoned their homes, their possessions and their lives and walked up an ancient trail, never to be seen alive again. Their fates remained a mystery for over seventy years, until a team of researchers discover the trailhead and attempt to retrace the path the doomed citizens of Friar took. A few among them believe they will find something terrible in the forest. But it is the forest that will find something terrible in them.”
YellowBrickRoad was an official Slamdance selection, and played at The Atlanta Film Festival and Screamfest to critical and audience acclaim, and won best feature at the New York Horror Film Festival.
This is the first mention I’ve made in the music section about the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear situation that is going on in Japan. It’s not because I’m an insensitive prick (okay, maybe just a little), but it’s because there wasn’t really much I could relate to the situation. But if we think about it, the people in that situation are dealing with horrors far worse than we can imagine. They’ve lost their homes, their families and their livelihood. But now, we can help.
