Storyline

High in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, a local sheriff finds world skateboard champion, Paul McGuiness' abandoned hearse parked at a remote alpine lake, a surfboard floating on the surface of the freezing water, but no trace of his body. Rumors immediately go viral that the troubled sports icon has committed suicide or overdosed on drugs from the relentless pressure being put on him to maintain his number one position as world champion. Paul's brother and manager, Bruce McGuiness, soon becomes haunted with the fear that he has caused the death of his younger sibling by having pushed him too hard to compete. Stricken with guilt and shame, he sets out on an epic road trip with four of Paul's best friends to restore his missing brother's honor and skateboard legacy. What begins as an adventure of a lifetime to make skateboard history, quickly turns into an ominous battle for survival as Bruce discovers that what happened to brother, is now happening to him.

Trivia

Michael Saad who played the Sheriff, had such a great time during the production, and believes in the film so much that he invested his own money into the project says, "I wanted to insure that this amazing film, this labor of love that captures so beautifully the authentic experience of the surf-skate subculture makes it to the big screen. A film like this comes along maybe once in a generation, and Road to Red is that film." See more »

1 hour of nothing

Seriously, an hour before anything actually happens? What movie were these a-holes out to make? There was a full hour of skateboarding, weed smoking, too old to be doing this nonsense before anything remotely plot moving happens. Tell you what. You wanna watch a good surfing/skateboarding film and horror movie? Watch Dogtown and Z-Boys then immediately watch any decent horror movie that actually knows what the hell it's supposed to be. Or go watch the original Point Break if you're looking for philosophy, surfing and action.
