The Road

The worst thing about 2011’s “The Road,” a Filipino horror film now available in the United States, is the title. Sharing the same name as the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Cormac McCarthy (and the film that followed), this “The Road” could get lost in the shuffle. And that would be a real shame, because it is a surprisingly strong film that gives you scares without falling into a ton of typical jump scares and cliché plotlines.
