Yellowbrickroad and Going Nowhere: A Movie Review

13 June 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Directors/writers: Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton.

The problem with a film that does not have direction is that the film simply goes in circles. Just like the characters in Yellowbrickroad, the viewer spends their time spinning their wheels, with no signs showing how to proceed forward. The script from Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton offers certain violent horror elements, but neither filmmaker attempts to make an argument, within the film's narrative. Thus, the viewer must do the work to fill in the blanks. Without evidence of what is and what is not, your effort is best spent on other endeavours.

Seven researchers head out into the bush, to find answers to a mass disappearance. 500 plus people vanished in Friar, New Hampshire in the 1940s. Now, these seven friends will repeat this outcome. Yellowbrickroad is a polished looking indie feature; yet the pacing of this feature is drawn out and purposeless. »
