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

Just finished watching - Genuinely creepy!
26 July 2011 | by leftjeffaSee all my reviews

OK, maybe you won't agree. I started flicking through the movie and thought it doesn't look like much is happening, then I still decided to watch it. The man in the talk box (cinema) near the start, with his peculiar voice 'got me', so I continued watching. I also will add that I watched without checking reviews (at IMDb) and without preconceived notions. And although there are many similar concepts in a multitude of films I've seen I ignored those thoughts too (like films that pretend to be based on real events) though I must admit, feeling like it happened does draw me in more. What I got was authentic acting, good believable conversations and believable characters, and a very simple, CREEPY, story line. The whole film sucked me in to this unnerving 'tease' shall we say. Anyway, I could babble more but I'll end it here with my emotional conclusion(emotions being the aim of any scary movie): creepy, unnerving and awesome!
