Storyline

One Morning in New England, 1940, the entire population of Friar New Hampshire - 572 people - walked together up a winding mountain trail and into the wilderness. They left behind their clothes, their money, all of their essentials. Even their dogs were abandoned, tied to posts and left to starve. No One knows why. A search party dispatched by the U.S. Army eventually discovered the remains of nearly 300 of Friar's evacuees. Many had frozen to death. Others were cruelly and mysteriously slaughtered. The bodies of the remaining citizens are still unaccounted for. Over the years, a quiet cover-up operation managed to weave the story of Friar into the stuff of legends and backwoods fairy tales. The town has slowly repopulated, but the vast wilderness is mostly untracked, with the northern-most stretches off limits to local hunters and loggers. In 2008, the coordinates for the "YELLOWBRICKROAD" trail head were declassified. The first official expedition into a dark and twisted wilderness ... Written by Andy Mitton and Jesse Holland

Interesting plot, bad writing and horrible execution
21 July 2011 | by DeanWinSee all my reviews

The movie begins with an interesting plot: in 1940 an entire village population left their houses to follow a trail for an unknown reason. Several were found dead, slaughtered, others were never seen again.

Years later, some researchers finally found the trail that was hidden from the public, for some reason.

Then, the movie collapses. The dialog is not interesting (mediocre at its best), the characters lack any background or are poorly interpreted and, due to amateurish writing, the premise is lost. There is no real horror or psychological terror, and in the end no explanation to why the people went there, why they disappeared or what is the yellow brick road.

Any attempt to find some meaning underline, is just wasting time because there is no subtext. They just destroyed what could have been a good movie.

Just want to say that the other guy who reviewed this movie, most belong to the staff of the movie, because giving this movie 10\10 is just wrong. This script should have been worked by professional people, not amateurs. Oh well, anyway, good try, i hope they learned through this (huge) mistake.

2 out of 10.
