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.

Backwoods (2008) is another film where folks from the city, run into trouble while camping out in the wilderness. As a made for TV feature, things are toned down accordingly. For a film in this genre, Backwoods is not particularly original or well done, and is rather annoying at times, but it does provide a few thrills and laughs.

As part of a job evaluation, the executive staff of a computer gaming company is divided into two teams, for a paintball battle in the forest. The two groups drive out into the backwoods of North Carolina, and setup separate camp sites. The next day, the war game begins, but while out hunting each other, the paintballers are attacked and captured, by members of a religious cult living in the woods, and dragged back to their camp.

Deborah van Valkenburg (Too Close For Comfort) is the matriarch of the forest clan. She determines if female prisoners are suitable for `breeding', with her ugly hulk of a son, Josiah (Robert `Bonecrusher' Mukes). The forest people are engaged in the manufacturer of illegal drugs, and fear the attention of law enforcement. Believing that the outsiders are FBI agents, the male prisoners are beaten, and tortured.

Killing some of their captors, the surviving male prisoners, led by Perry (Danny Nucci) and Adam (Ryan Merriman), manage to get free and do some damage. Making a break, they are able to free their companions, Lee (Haylie Duff) and Maggie (Mimi Michaels), and flee into the woods, with the clan close behind. The film's most memorable instance of graphic violence, involving a trap with sharpened wooden spikes, is also one of the most humorous. It is amazing how well someone can shoot, when impaled on a set of spikes.

The writing is not great, particularly the dialog.
