Even before its’ nationwide release on November 30, GMA Films’ horror movie “The Road” has already sparked the interest of foreign movie critics/enthusiasts specializing in films of this genre. Here are some of the quotes:
“Stunning cinematography and sound design combine to create a truly unsettling atmosphere” Todd Brown, editor-in-chief Twitch Film
“A beautifully shot, twisted supernatural tale with incredible FX and great scares!” Brad Miska, Editor-in-Chief Bloody Disgusting
“Creepy to the extreme. It gets under your skin and stays there.” Jason Bene, KillerFilm.com
About the trailer above, here’s more from Todd Brown of twitchfilm.com :
“We ran the first teaser for The Road a while back, much impressed by the visuals and mood of the piece. And now Laranas has released the full trailer for the film, a bit of work that still keeps plot details to a minimum while showing off the pictures gorgeous cinematography and incredibly creepy tone, that tone greatly enhanced by the use of music and sound design from Let The Right One In composer Johan Söderqvist. Laranas is clearly on top form here.”
And regarding the movie poster above, JoBlo.com (Arrow in the Head) and Jared Pacheco have this to say:
“NEW ONE-SHEET FOR GENRE FLICK THE ROAD SCORES ITSELF A ROTTING CORPSE!”
“It seems there’s a Filipino genre flick that’s been getting some attention as of late that has somehow been flying under our radar. Well I’m about to change that. The project I’m getting at is a supernatural romp called THE ROAD and it’s coming our way from director Yam Laranas.”
Here’s the plot of “The Road”:
A twelve year old cold case is reopened when three teens are missing in an abandoned road. In the course of the investigation, deeper and gruesome stories of abduction and murders are discovered. After more than two decades, the secrets of the haunted road may finally be revealed.
If I have interested you so far, then mark the date – November 30 – when “The Road” will open all throughout the Philippines.
