A cop calls for EMS to come out to Old Hickock Road. It's already been established that the road isn't known by that name any longer. Fern couldn't find it on a map, Mike told her that names change, and the old timer outside the store said that he hadn't heard it called by that name for a long time. See more »

User Reviews

A slow burn drama NOT horror.
25 May 2020 | by www-allie_rooSee all my reviews

Interesting use of backwoods folklore to add suspense to a otherwise slow (and I do mean slow) burn drama. There is no actual horror parts to the movie. It's was catching enough that once I was to a certain point I finished the whole movie but I was multitasking as the same time. Your undivided attention is not necessary to understand the movie. If interested in old time hillbilly lore it will be worth the time.
