So, how many Wizard of Oz connections are there? My husband the Oz fan is curious.
It's an interesting little horror movie (horror-ish, anyways) which stars, among others, Cassidy Freeman of "Smallville" fame (actually her brother, Clark, is also in it playing -- you guessed it -- her character's brother).
Basically, it goes like this: in 1940, an entire town of people just got up one day and walk down this trail into northern New Hampshire. The whole town was deserted, and after some searching eventually a lot of their bodies were found up-trail. There was only one survivor. This was all classified by the government, for unknown reasons, for nearly 70 years. This, btw, is all told in text screens, and discussions by the main group of characters.
Flash forward to the present and a group of more or less 30-somethings want to find the trail, search for clues, and write a book about what they found. They want to unravel this mystery.
As one might imagine, things do not go well for our intrepid investigators, and one tragedy after another begins to befall them. There is nearly constant music from an unknown source. People start to lose their memories or become disoriented. Etc.
Then there is an ending which is just as strange and odd as the beginning.
I've been thinking about this film a lot since I watched it last night. I went to IMDB and other places, and there seem to be as many theories as there have been people who viewed the film. And although I'm not in any way implying that "YellowBrickRoad" is anywhere near as good a film as "Mulholland Dr.," it left me with similar feelings after the first viewing.
I'm curious if anyone else has seen, and what your impressions of it are. Do you have a theory?
I have the DVD, but haven't gotten around to watching it yet (so skipped the majority of your post ).
