Trivia

The church scene was filmed in Baker Memorial United Methodist Church, which is a few blocks from the Hotel Baker in downtown St. Charles. Both buildings were built by Col. Edward Baker, a prominent local citizen. Col. Baker also helped fund the construction of the St. Charles Municipal Center, the white-tower building that is prominently featured in the film.

As a first feature stuck with a budget smaller than an atom, it's an amazingly effective scare fest that knows the best parts to borrow from the giants of the genre
28 November 2011 | by dgireSee all my reviews

"Munger Road" doesn't break much new ground, but it covers the old ground nicely. Two St. Charles students (Trevor Morgan and Hallock Beals) get a video camera so they can go out with their dates (Brooke Peoples and Lauren Storm), to the tracks on Munger Road to check for supernatural activity. The car engine mysteriously dies and the four kids are marooned in the middle of nowhere.

From John Carpenter's "Halloween," director/writer Nick Smith appropriates the escaped serial killer plot, plus pays homage to the opening-scene tracking shot by having a cop investigate a dark house through a point-of-view camera.

Smith also lifts the swinging ceiling lamp effect from Hitchcock's "Psycho" and briefly the making-a-documentary premise from "The Blair Witch Project" which it stole from "Cannibal Holocaust."

So, don't go to see "Munger Road" for originality.

Go to witness how Smith and his young conspirators (including Polish composer Wojciech Golczewski with his edgy, alarming score) transform the sleepy little community of St. Charles into the scariest Illinois town since Michael Myers roamed fictional Haddonfield.
