Editorial Reviews

This whole new way to look at film by writer/director James A. Ishoy revolves around Carly Heck (Monica Jayne Booth), a wife and mother of three who travels down the road of life in the wrong direction. Filmed on site of the small rural town of Fernley Nevada, this film is the stark reflection of a life lived in addiction in small-town America. Carly drags her best friend, Candace (Krystal Landrum), and her three children through one heartache after another. Even the love from a local deputy (Michael S. Barnett) can't scare Carly straight. When Carly's late husband's criminal past comes to collect a debt, she is pushed to the point of no return. With nothing to lose she sets out to make things right for herself. She finds it however, to be all in vain.

In an act of desperation she runs... and her "sins" are catching up with her. On this fateful night her path is forced to u-turn and she pays a terrible price. Karma has found its prey on Pyramid Highway.

With a mostly a volunteer cast and crew and one of the best soundtracks you have never heard, Pyramid Highway is not just a film, but an experience in independent filmmaking like none other.

We appreciate your interest in this film and we truly hope you enjoy it!

The film is well acted and scripted, with a fantastic soundtrack.
An unblinking, gritty look at small town malaise and excess.

LOVED Pyramid Highway!!!!! It's quite amazing what you collectively managed to do with 20K. It far exceeds expectations of a low budget production. Pyramid Highway does not disappoint. Story is excellent (nice and dark) and the filming- simply incredible. Quality piece of work! If you like the darker works of Darren Aronofsky, you will LOVE Pyramid Highway! Everything you could ask for in a film, all wrapped up in a nice package. I highly recommend it.

I watched this (painfully) to its very end. This violates nearly every requirement of a quality film. There is a considerable amount of bad acting and directing, which is evidenced by untrained/ uncoached actors stumbling through their lines and unable to react to one another or to place, transference failures, and exaggerated speech and action. Strained dialog occurs multiple times early on when the scenes seem to gratuitously create screaming conflicts for no good cause; presumably in order to fill otherwise dead air with contrived and exaggerated conflict. The photographer seemed to be completely unable to control the colorspace, and so any fluorescent-lit interiors are in glaring yellow (a symptom of chopping off the blue end either by filtering, poor in-camera color balancing or failure to replace the practical bulbs with cine-style ones). In many cases the photography wasn't even balanced to fit within the dynamic range of the camera, so highlights were often blown out -- as were the reds in many cases. There appeared to be no attempt to design wardrobe to meet the mood or story line. Several shots were outright mis-framed. The editing would hold shots for long periods with not much happening. But above all, the sound is horrifically bad. Most of the film demanded dialog replacement but didn't get it, so the background noise, reverberation, truncated microphone bandwidth, and amplifier noise become quite obvious, even dominating many scenes. Volume control is poor. Although there are attempts at multiple peaks in the drama, this is primarily a story of a continual spiral downward by the principal character, which makes this picture neither a drama nor a suspense story.
