Five New Clips From "The Road" Are Disturbing, Religious

Illustration for article titled Five New Clips From The Road Are Disturbing, Religious

Ten minutes of new clips from "The Road" bring on the post-apocalyptic family bonding as a father and son flee scary truckers, evade cannibals, and eat cheetos in a bomb shelter. Also included are God talk and prayer.

In these clips, it appears that the allegorical feeling of "The Road" is going to include a strong undercurrent of Christian-style spirituality. At one point, the father talks about how his child is "God" to him; at another, the kid prays his thanks for a bag of cheetos. We never really know what's caused the apocalypse in this movie, so throwing in a little random Christianity makes sense. Basically the film is vague enough that you can build your own allegory - maybe the apocalypse was caused by God; maybe it was caused by redneck cannibals. You watch these clips and decide.

"The Road" hits theaters later this month.

I've been where they filmed that second clip. The abandoned pennsylvania turnpike. It's awesome, if you live anywhere within three states you should go sometime. But not at night, oh man, not at night.
