Red River Road Ending Explained
Red River Road ending reveals that the family is still living in a lockdown but Anna wakes from her terrible dream after ripping off the chip on her neck.
In the dystopian world, the family is living under lockdown following an internet virus. The family is provided with weekly rations of food and DVDs.
As Anna brings the ration inside, she finds food and DVDs in them. At that time, the phone rings, but she doesn’t pick up the phone and she stares at the phone fiercely.
She lets the phone continue to ring. Immediately, she goes to the garage, where she brings out the iPad that is kept secret.
She thinks for a while then she picks up the pad and calls her husband thinking if the call will connect or not.
Seeing her husband’s face on the other side, she is shocked. Stephen immediately asks her if she is in the hospital. She tells him she is at their summer house.
But Stephen is shocked and tells her that they are in the summer house and thinks that this is a prank of their kids. But while talking, the battery drops down and she starts taking short breaths the sound of the device banging is heard and the light goes away.
At once, she goes to the kitchen and takes out a torch light. The phone rings in the darkness, but she doesn’t pick up the call. She goes down to the basement to check at power meter but suddenly she hears a person breathing.
She follows the sound and the DVD room. She finds her son Wyatt and when she goes near him, she hears him growling like an animal.
But he disappears through a wall. Seeing something like that, she runs away to the upper floor but she finds her son-like creature behind her.
She then hears her son growling behind her, and now scared, she runs to the first floor. While climbing, she falls on the ladder.
When she picks herself up and looks down, she sees her husband and sons. She enters her room and pulls the drawer in front of the door.
She goes inside the wardrobe and closes the room, and breaks the handle. Inside the room, she begins to load the bullets into the magazine while the door is being shaken.
Anna shoots the gun and says she remembered, but the bullets pass through the entities. Seeing the bullet is futile against the creatures, she rests the gun beside her ready to lose her life, and shoots herself.
Later, she wakes up to the sound of a bird on her bed and feels quite harsh on her neck. She hears the sound of a car and goes down to the kitchen.
Looking through the window, she is shocked to see her sons and husband along with their dog Brody coming out of the vehicle.
Stephen asks her how she is feeling. Seeing her unable to speak, he tells her that the doctor has told him it would take some time for her to speak.
She goes in front of him and puts her hand on his chest. She feels his heartbeat. Then looking at him, she smiles.
