Unlike most genres, horror has that rare quality where being absolutely dreadful can sometimes be a blessing. It’s a genre that seems to openly bathe in its clichés, lovingly embrace its stock characters, and bask in its ridiculous debauchery and excess. It can be terrifying, hilarious or even prophetic at times and its ability to bleed and seep into almost every other genre is second to none.
With that in mind, Nowhere Road was an experiment in taking the traditional horror vocabulary and turning it against the audience. The characters, settings, and events depicted are all standard horror movie staples, but it was my hope that the final combination of blood and guts would end up being greater than the sum of its parts. Otherwise, it’s just another bad horror movie… which could be good.
And I love bad horror movies.
