From the first time this we saw the trailer for The Road, it definitely had our attention. It truly looked creepy and atmospheric, and we had high hopes, but it begged the question: "can a movie directed by a guy named Yam be any good?"
Sure, why not.
|You can't run from ghosts! LOL|
|"You come with me I make kidnap."|
|They look so happy together.|
The first story was good, but it didn't really pack many scares. Sure, there were plenty of creepy-looking spirits running around, but it felt a bit... reserved, to us. Maybe we were just expecting the "ghosts" of the titular road to be a bit more vengeful and dangerous.
|Run, rabbit, run.|
The third and last section of the movie, 1988, was solid enough, but by the time it rolled around it was obvious what the "twist" was and it took away a bit of the film's overall impact. If anything, the this story was a bit sad, as it made us sympathize with the killer... a bit too much for our liking.
|Shine a light on it all you want to sir, it is what it is.|
|You died for catharsis. Thank you for your sacrifice.|
|She's very nice looking, too bad she has to die on an old country road like that.|
Rhian Ramos... because she is not jail-bait. Sotty, readers from Thailand.
