Yay, October!

I love the Fall and October is my favorite month of all. The smells and colors of falling leaves, pumpkins, big bowls of hot comfort food, apple dumplings and Halloween!

I'm sure there are more than a few sites going over horror movie lists and I am no exception so get your flashlight, grab your teddy bear and, if you dare, peek through your fingers as I undertake Cherry's 31 Nights of Horror

First up YELLOWBRICKROAD  (click to watch the official trailer)

Synopsis: 1940: the entire population of Friar, New Hampshire walked up a winding mountain trail, leaving everything behind. 2008: the first official expedition into the wilderness attempts to solve the mystery of the lost citizens of Friar.

I love small independent films as well as obscure bizarre horror as long as it has a good story. The story behind this film drew me in. The possibilities!

And then it fell flat. While I love character driven horror over full out gore splatter the acting is this film was horrid and unbelievable. The ends seemed out of place even though they foreshadow it several times. Nothing is answered with the ending and that agitates me. So for that this movie only gets  2 out of 8 cherries from me
