The Blair Witch phenomenon seems to come full circle here in a movie that doesn’t try to mask itself as a documentary, but still features a crew of people investigating some weird goings-on in a small town’s forestland.
The hook? Seventy years ago, some townspeople started walking up a path and were never heard from again. Now, it’s up to a team to uncover the mystery, even if the current citizens aren’t exactly brimming with information or a desire to talk about the past.
For a lower budget horror film, YellowBrickRoad looks like it has potential, but it almost always looks ridiculous when the production team uses a moronic title and throws in a supposedly “creepy” whisper of a famous line from The Wizard of Oz over their story that seems to have nothing to do with The Wizard of Oz except said moronic title.
