The Road

It's kind of an impossible task to outdo the book but this adaptation was pretty good nonetheless. If I hadn't read the book, I think I would have been devastated by this.

The visuals were striking, the atmosphere scary as hell, and the acting was incredible. SHR tried watching this but was quickly turned off by its bleakness and horror. I'm not quite sure what she was expecting and felt a bit bad for her that she had to see the scene with the people locked in the basement. Scarring.

Directed by John Hillcoat
