This great movie will find its audience, 18 June 2011
Author: taylorbridges66 from United States

I love when people see a movie they don't get the first time, they become really defensive and think some artsy filmmaker out there's trying to make them feel stupid. Suddenly they're labeling it the worst movie ever, skipping straight to ridiculous statements like "worst movie I've ever seen". That's just crazy.

The horror genre's clogged with terrible meaningless crap about teenagers getting drunk and making stupid decisions, barely anyone ever tries anything new. In YELLOWBRICKROAD, we get characters who are actual people and professionals, dialogue that dares to have (gasp!) subtext, story turns no one would ever see coming (sounds like that's offensive to people, too), great ensemble acting, all of these things that it doesn't take an art-house fan to notice, it's just that people don't want to keep listening.

Here's the real deal: this is a psychological thriller and a patient character study that relies on atmosphere and creeping dread to get under people's skin rather than cheap pop-outs and stingers. It's not perfect, but for a tiny-budget indie it looks fantastic, it's well-performed, it's well-shot, and it features an incredible sound design that should be heard in 5.1 surround. The ending is polarizing, but it worked for me. Helps if you get all the references to films of the 1970s.

If you like lots of blood and guts, wet tee shirts on sluts, and brainless cookie-cutter plotting, go elsewhere. This movie never should have been marketed to you, anyway.

For the rest of you, if you don't mind a movie asking you to do a little work on your own, a little extra listening, you'll really like this one.

And no matter how many jackasses decide this movie sucks because it didn't lead them through every obvious plot point like every other piece of crap out there, more and more people who actually get it are going to discover it.
