‘Desert Road’ Review: Horror Meets Sci-Fi In A Ghost Story With Soul – SXSW

‘Desert Road’ review: Horror meets sci-fi In a Ghost story with soul – SXSW

Making her directorial debut, Shannon Triplett shows a sophisticated grasp of genre dynamics, with a bold use of space — a stretch of the Mojave Desert doubling for Death Valley — that proves more and more gripping as the film’s mysteries unfold. Its pasty-faced attendant, the Norman Bates-like Randy (Max Mattern), is on edge, and his awkward attempts at conversation make Clare uncomfortable, to the extent that she fabricates a boyfriend who is sleeping on the back seat, a lie that will soon be embarrassingly revealed. Title: Desert Road Festival: SXSW(Narrative Spotlight) Sales agent: United Talent, Creative Artists Agency Director/screenwriter: Shannon Triplett Cast: Kristine Froseth, Frances Fisher, Beau Bridges, Ryan Hurst, D.B.
