I didn't have high expectations for this movie. To my way of thinking, the world already has more than enough B-horror movies featuring a group of young people going out into the woods and being attacked by a bunch of dirty, disgusting backwoods cretins. To make matters worse, the characters in this film are all taking part in a corporate team-building retreat (not a reunion - the information in the editorial review is less than accurate), a practice I consider to be one of the most infernal ideas mankind has ever come up with. And wouldn't you know it? These young video game company executives turn out to be among the most annoying people on the planet. Only two have any redeeming qualities whatsoever, the one dude who isn't really in to all of the kissing up and debauched camaraderie (Ryan Merriman) and the hot girl who's sort of uncomfortable with her jerk boss's constant touchy-feely sessions with her (Haylie Duff). To my surprise, the film actually grew some legs somewhere in the middle - but not enough to really win me over. In the end, a complete lack of originality consigns Backwoods to the ranks of the slightly below average. Think Wrong Turn meets The Hills Have Eyes, and you'll pretty much have Backwoods all figured out.

I wasn't sure what to make of the name Tom Alan Smithee being given to a character (and a minor character, at that). As most B-movie buffs know, "Alan Smithee" is the name film directors use when they know they've made a real stinker and don't want their real names associated with the project.

I quite liked the characters and story .Think Timber Falls meets Dying Breed.

Haylie Duff gives a believable performance as one of the girls that go on a paintball excursion with a group of co workers for a workshop in leadership and team work. After they settle in for the night at there camp they are attacked and taken to a cult community and put in cages .The men are set to be slaughtered and the women to be bedded by the breeder.A huge ugly looking mutant who serves as stud service for the savage hillbilly cult that have made a home in a remote part of the "Backwoods"
Danny Nucci whom I love turns up in this indie slasher and his acting is always up to par playing a cocky jokester.
Deborah Van Valkenburg gives a chilling performance as the mother of the cult .You might remember her from her stint in the 80's sitcom "Too Close For Comfort"and she was also one of the prostitutes in The Devils Rejects.
I like this movie because it has all the elements I like in a slasher although it could have used more gore but that didn't
diminish my enjoyment of the film.The main thing I loved about it was that the captives don't remain helpless victims and just get tortured "although that can be fun too"..There is quite the battle for survival and some great avenging moments.

Is it original ? not exactly but the formula is still fun and one I as a slasher fan always enjoy.The one where people wander into the woods,run into some crazy backwoods clan with their own set of rules and morals and they're usually not conducive to the health of the trespasser.It's non stop action from beginning to end.

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY pleasantly surprised!!! October 15, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this thinking it would be just another movie about a bunch of ppl in the woods being attacked by a bunch of crazy ppl just because they're crazy. I figured on a rainy day when nothing's on, why not watch another gory movie about what we've all seen a thousand times before just to pass the time. I was actually very surprised at how good this movie actually is.

Finally, we have a decent reason for ppl being out in the woods instead of them just randomly deciding to go there or the usual running out of gas. And finally there's an actual legitimate story behind why the ppl are crazy in the first place. The group is a bunch of young business ppl who go on a paintball retreat for the weekend in what they think is some kind of National Park. The ppl that live in this area are still stuck in some kind of time warp where they believe the government is out to do them harm.

One of the guys walks around with a hat on that says FBI so the ppl that live there think that's who the group is. It's not long before they start their next day to do their paintball thing when they realize strange things happening around them. They soon realize something's not right and decide to leave. That's when everything starts happening.

However, the "backwoods" ppl aren't running around randomly trying to kill everybody just because they can. They don't want to harm the women. There's sort of a 'Mother Earth' figure who leads things and believes the women need to be part of their circle to breed. I won't say much more and give it all away but finally a good backwoods story that has meaning for the ppl being there and meaning for why they're being targets.

It's actually a really good movie, good acting, good storyline, and everything comes together when it should. I'm glad I added it to my collection.
