Nowhere Road

Released: 2011

Directed by Benjamin Dynice; Written by Ryan Parrott

Three clean cut college aged individuals are pick up off of the side of a desert road by two country boys in a RV who were out hunting mountain lions. It seems that something sinister is afoot as these two guys are a bit too friendly.

Nowhere Road is able to stretch its 14 minute runtime to basically include a plot for a full length feature and manage not to feel cramped. This film is bothBy clever and simple; yet, it is able to completely baffle and shock the audience.

The characters were as well developed as could be accomplished with the film’s length. With that being said, the audience leaves the film being able to identify the motives and traits of virtually all of the characters. With the exception of a confusing, albeit purposeful, misdirection, this film’s premise is solid.

As Nowhere Road concludes, the audience wants to know where these characters are headed next. If such a short can get the audience to care, even if they are interested just for curiosity, then it is likely a film worth watching.

Rating: 7/10

This Film was screened at the 2012 Atlanta Horror Film Festival.
