I agree with many of the other reviewers in that if you just want a slasher film with an easy story than this is not the one for you. If you want a movie that has an interesting backstory, a strong cast and a creepy, unsettling storyline, than you will enjoy this film. I love movies with this kind of backstory whether a history of a haunted house or a haunted road and they showed that quite well with the documentary style beginning. Bringing the characters together and letting us get to know them as they started out was well done. Slow but I think that made the movie all the better. And then the descent into madness/hell/?? This is a film that will remain with you after it is over. Not so much to discuss but to feel. I agree that I felt the ending was a bit of a cheat and still not quite sure what it was showing but I still enjoyed the movie and feel the need to watch it again to catch things I probably missed the first time.

The movie starts out as a black and white documentary about an incident in 1940 where a village/town of people all take off walking down a trail. Only one person survived and he was a bit crazy. Bodies were found along the trail, many more missing.

Years later Teddy Barnes, teacher and writer (Michael Laurino) manages to obtain the records and decides to investigate in order to publish a book. The team goes to the co-ordinates of the trail head only to find a movie theater. Teddy decides to go into the theater and talk to the counter girl/projectionist who tells him a bizarre tale of how the original Oz movie was playing at the time of the incident. She (Laura Heisler) is over eager to help them go down the Yellow Brick Road, a sign that marks the trial.

She takes them to the trail. There is a psychologist(Alex Draper) on the trip who is constantly filming individuals and asking them questions as a sanity check. This gives the movie the annoying feel of those reality type movies. Also in the team is his wife Melissa (Anessa Ramsey) and Daryl and Erin Luger (Clark Freeman and Cassidy Freeman). Cy (Sam Elmore) and Jill (Tara Giordano) round out the team as they head on down the trail laced with belladonna. The movie develops slowly as small things happen. Daryl finds a hat that is from the era, but seems new. Jill's GPS goes haywire, one minute they are in Guam, the next Italy. They joke about it.

They hike for five days in Northern NH (is that possible?) and they come to a field (poppies?) and they hear music. Their instruments are not working properly and they know something is at work, but what? They speculate: Solar flares? Earth magnetism? Government experiment? The music becomes addicting. Emotions flare...

Good acting. Nice New England accent by Laura Heisler. I enjoy horror/mystery/thrillers and this one was exceptionally good, even though the ending didn't offer an explanation as to the events.

F-bomb, sex, no nudity.

It may not be for everyone but this is a great, slow burn of an indie horror flick. As it slowly peels back the layers of madness you will either end up frustrated and confused or you will appreciate the ride it's taking you on. The scariest things in life aren't what we know, it's what we don't know.

I obviously fall into the camp that loved it. Great script, great cast, great direction and great aesthetics for a low budget movie.

Disclaimer: I viewed this film as a streaming rental and cannot comment on the audio or visual appearance of the disc. My review concerns the entertainment value of the film only.

According to the backstory of YELLOW BRICK ROAD, in 1940 the residents of an entire New England town decided one day to abandon their village - they walked up a wooded trail and most were never seen again, although a great portion of them were found slaughtered along the trail. Now, seventy years later, a small group of researchers are attempting to discover what happened and why the townsfolk left. They won't like what they find.

The thumbnail image for this DVD is misleading - it reminds me of The Hills Have Eyes or Wrong Turn - and suggests a supernatural slasher type film. There is no doubt there are some disturbing visuals here (or at least I found them to be) but that aspect of the film acts as an effective contribution to the atmosphere of creepy dread rather than as the primary focus. Thus those looking for splatter and gore may be disappointed.

What this film does do, not quite coherently but still effectively, is create a very unsettling feeling, one just sideways enough so that I never had a handle on what was coming next. It's a puzzling film - the character's motivations aren't always clear, and the resolution of the narrative leaves even more questions - but I have the feeling that none of that really matters.

If you're looking for something action packed, flashy, bloody, and mindlessly easy to follow like most horror movies, this one is not for you. You have to pay attention to understand what's going on, listen to what the characters say (it's VERY content driven) and be willing to keep an open mind. The answers are not given to you, and the film is more about the journey than the ending.
The first time I saw it...I couldn't sleep for days unless I watched Corner Gas or Mr. Bean before bed.
There are things that make this film so unsettling for a variety of reasons...
If you're up to try something new and a movie that breaks rules (in a good way), then give this movie a shot. You won't be sorry.
