Road to the Well (2016) – Movie Review

 

Movie Review –

Last week I had gotten the honor to check out a film titled “Road to the Well (2016)” written and directed by Jon Cvack. Of course, after the Holidays I was quite swamped but I was excited to see what it was so instead of waiting, I sat my work aside and started viewing the screening.

Now, I’ve seen many indies in my time but this one stood out amongst a large portion of them. To start with the cast was simply superb for their roles, you could tell right off the bat that everyone within the film took their part seriously and gave they’re all. The story I thoroughly enjoyed, it wasn’t your normal cookie cut scenario, this film has some drive to it. You can surely tell a true amount of hard work and effort went into this film. If I had to break it down to one thing that I enjoyed the most about Road to the Well (2016), it would certainly be how they presented the personas of actions within the film versus throwing some flashing lights and colors around. A superb film for the suspense film fans, check out Road to the Well (2016) when you have the time; it’s a diamond in the rough.

Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 4.5 stars
