A NIGHT IN THE WOODS



'A FRESH TERRIFYING NEW FEAR LURKS IN THE WOODS' 4*
Dean Boor, Shock Horror.

An impressive horror/psychological thriller hybrid that pushes all the right fright buttons from the award-winning director of acclaimed indie Brit-flick “South West 9”.

Key talent:

Directed by Richard Parry (South West 9), starring US indie star Scoot McNairy (Monsters; In Search Of A Midnight Kiss), promising Australian actress Anna Skellern (Siren; The Descent: Part 2) and rising British actor Andrew Hawley (Snow White And The Huntsman; Wuthering Heights), and featuring impressive camera work by cinematographer Simon Dennis (who recently completed shooting the forthcoming big-screen adaptation of “The Sweeney” for director Nick Love).

Synopsis:


On what is intended to be a fun camping trip to investigate and to chill in the atmosphere of the legendary haunted past of Dartmoor’s Wistman’s Woods, Brody, his girlfriend Kerry and her cousin Leo very soon find themselves mysteriously ill at ease both with their surroundings and their companions. Bad moods and minor disagreements rapidly lead to feelings of severe paranoia, sexual tension, fear and, eventually, violence between the three friends, a situation that worsens as the evening draws in. At first, they suspect the conflicts are simply the result of being thrown together in the ancient, eerie surroundings, but as night closes upon them each begins to wonder if darker forces are at work.


We like it because:

Director Richard Parry effectively takes the “Blair Witch Project” template and reinvents it for a new generation by injecting it with a distinctive British feel and by brilliantly employing the excellent camerawork of Simon Dennis to add a goosebump-raising visual style that puts the viewer right in the midst of the terror.

Oof! That's shockingly derivitive of Blair Witch, the trailer makes it look like blatant plagiarism! They even have the scene with the local old folk discussing the spooky local legend Would've been more interested if it wasn't a 'found footage', the production values look quite decent . . .

I see you used a quote from Gorezone's Dean Boor.

He's to reviewing what Alan Jones is to secrecy.
