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.
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.
—from The Scarecrow of Oz, the ninth of L Fran Baum's Oz books.
okay. I have tried several times to do this *fantastic* movie justice in a review and I have failed each time. But like an intrepid band of modern-day explorers wandering northward into uncharted wilderness in search of an urban legend, I will keep on ploughing through the thorny underbrush until I get this right.
This is a wonderful puzzle box of a horror movie. It is an art movie that confuses people because everything about it is so brilliantly un-pretentious.
As a young man, fervent about writing great novels one day, I read many a text on how to write well, how to be a better writer, how to write. One book by an author, I think her name was Bly, concocted an unforgettable lesson by having her readers first visualize a sinister meeting of pirates on the high sea on a dark and stormy night. (A bit campy, yes? Fun, overblown, cliché, hackneyed, yes?) Now keep everything about the scene exactly the same, only change the weather to brilliant sunlight over a smooth turquoise sea, spread out and glistening in all directions. To me at least, the second scene is far more sinister.
In a sense, this movie is a joke. I noticed that the first time I saw this movie. "Noticed" is an understatement.Read more ›

A pretentious, forgettable slog that defies you to like it, with a cop-out ending that would be laughable if it hadn't wasted your time getting there. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Amazon Customer
I remember some years ago when this movie came out that the trailer made me want to see it. I don't know why I missed it then, but I rented it from Amazon.com two days ago. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Greg Kingsley
Completely terrifying. Creepy and unnerving and suspenseful the whole time, and then just terrifying. I loved it, in short.
Excellent performances throughout.
Terrible, worst movie I have seen in years.
