Riley Cusick, who has directed a number of shorts and appeared as an actor in Chelsea Stardust’s Satanic Panic and Joe Begos’ VFW, makes his feature directorial debut with this film while also playing the roles of twins Charlie and Vincent.
A decade after her sister goes missing on Halloween, Laura returns home to make peace with the past, but comes back into the world of the twins who now run a roadside attraction. She has nowhere else to go and can’t connect to her family, so she keeps falling deeper into their world of madness.
Yet as she grows closer to one twin, the other goes further down his own twisted path, as these three are all haunted and all on a journey that seemingly has only one dark close. I really enjoyed this film as it’s just as much a slasher as it is a very human story.
I was also happy to see Friday the 13th Part VII star Lar Par Lincoln show up.
Autumn Road is most definitely worth your time. I thought it would just be a vanity project for Cusick, but now I’m excited to see anything and everything he does in the future.
You can watch it on on a number of digital and cable platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, Comcast, Dish and Shaw.
I’m a bit of sucker for films with a single actor playing twins. I might have to give this one a shot.
Yeah. That sounds like a feature: Twin movies (with one actor). So Dead Ringers, Adaptation, John Lithgow in Raising Cain. In your case: Dead Ringer with Bette Davis and the divine Ms. de Havilland in Dark Mirror! Meanwhile, knowing Sam, he errs to Brian de Palma’s Sisters (1973) with Margot Kidder.
