It’s the most haunted road in America today, and now Buckout Road is getting its story told. This creepy backwoods lane is a road located in Westchester County, right between Harrison and White Plains, New York. It is home to some of the scariest urban legends of ghosts, murderers and albino killers.
Buckout Road is being directed by Matthew Currie Holmes (Firewall, The Fog, Wrong Turn 2), who co-wrote the script for the film with Shahin Chandrasoma (Uncanny). The cast includes Lethal Weapon’s Danny Glover, Evan Ross (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and 2), Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Wynonna Earp, Avengers: Age of Ultron), Henry Czerny (Clear and Present Danger, Mission: Impossible) and Colm Feore (Thor, The Chronicles of Riddick).
A college class project on creation and destruction of modern myth turns terrifying when a trio of young people come to realize that the urban legends surrounding the famed Buckout Road may, in fact, be REAL.
The trailer is intense and the cinematography is beautiful. The characters seem to be facing some very messed up urban legends. One that peeked my interest was myth about the girls being burned at the stake. Plus, the above pictures of the ghoul woman is about as urban legend as it comes. The actual road is not home to just one or two urban legends, but fourteen different tales. It seems that is a mecca for supernatural creatures. The film captures the darkness and evil that surrounds the road and breathes life into each of the urban legends. The story itself has the characters first start dreaming of an urban legend, and then their psyche leads them to the road to enact the legend. There is something utterly horrific and terrifying in it. That it is not just about the scares but about breaking down the characters mentally and entering their subconscious.
I, for one, can’t wait to see the film. I love supernatural films that have some kernel of truth to them. Currently, there is no word yet on when Buckout Road will be distributed, but the film will be competing in film festivals this year. Do you dare drive down Buckout Road?
