Product Description

Product Description

DON’T GO IN THE WOODS is sound advice, especially when there's a killer on the loose. First-time director Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Law & Order: Criminal Intent) explores love, greed and ruthlessness in this twisted musical/horror hybrid, telling the story of a young band who heads to the woods to get away from their everyday lives and focus on writing new songs. Hoping to walk away from the trip with new tunes that will score them their big break, they instead find themselves in the middle of a nightmare beyond comprehension.

Displaying the musical talents of a gifted ensemble cast as they sing songs penned by acclaimed singer-songwriter Sam Bisbee, DON’T GO IN THE WOODS unexpectedly veers from terrifying horror to musical moments that wouldn't be out of place on Glee, truly keeping viewers captivated, terrified and entertained in equal measure.

First off -- It's a B-movie. It's not supposed to be judged upon the direction of Steven Spielberg or the writing of Stephen King. It's a B-movie. Judge it as such.
The plot is fair but weak at the end. The premise is the same. The acting is better than average (for B-movies; it's not Brad Pitt or Angelina). The soundtrack however is outstanding.
"It's a stupid movie because they sing." ---- IT'S A MUSICAL.
"It's a stupid movie because the acting/singing is not A-list" ---- IT'S A B-MOVIE.
If you like thought provoking alternative / rock / new age folk crossed tunes, you'll love this. If you you'd rather your music be nose-bleeding non-thoughtful noise or cry in the beer type, you'll probably hate it.
Bottom line is ---- IT IS A B-MOVIE. If you don't like them, don't watch them. If you like them, watch this one. At the very least you'll appreciate the new approach.

Granted, it's a B horror movie, but knowing that going in, you don't expect this amazing plot. I was blown away by the music, to be honest. Months later, me and my group of friends that rented this together, still sing one of the songs often; my friend with his guitar. "I'm a man on the edge of extinction", the music really sticks with you. Now, not many are a huge fan of the cross genre horror/music, but I'm one of them. I love Repo! The Genetic Opera, Sweeney Todd, and I love this. Is it 5 start worthy like those two imho, no. But four stars for sure, as what it is, a b-rated horror movie with music, not for everyone but definitely for me! I love it and have rewatched it several times now, mostly for the music, lol. Music and murder go together like paint by numbers for me! Not for everyone but I highly recommend it!

Actor Vincent D'Onofrio takes the directorial reins for the peculiar "Don't Go In The Woods." I had read a lot about this film prior to seeing it, and it was absolutely eviscerated by mainstream critics. Combining horror with music, the film doesn't really succeed in either genre. But, for some reason, I find it utterly fascinating--flaws and all. I had heard so many people proclaim this the worst film of the year so far, I guess my expectations were fairly low. As such, I was pleasantly surprised to find this oddity better than expected. Don't get me wrong, it's not a particularly good movie from a traditional standpoint but it is weirdly appealing.

Perhaps the first issue that this indie faces is that it positioned itself as a horror film (more specifically a slasher). It even shares its title with a horrendously awful 1981 splatter-fest. I'll be generous to the horror elements in this film when I say that they seem like a complete afterthought, just tacked on to make things slightly more interesting. Anyone who approaches "Don't Go In The Woods" expecting thrills and chills will be sorely disappointed. The killings are not distinguished by any real cleverness, are relatively infrequent until the finale, and are explained away using the most cliche'd device in horror movie history. I was amused (and not at all surprised) when the final solutions became apparent, but it is all so lazily constructed and logistically head-scratching to make much of an impact. And still, once the final minutes of the film kicked into overdrive--I went along with it and even got a chuckle from the film's signature closing line.

The film, however, is far more of a musical than anything.

Yup, it's definitely a Nina movie (something my husband and I used to call movies that we'd let my daughter pick to watch when she was young say about 12 or 13 we'd all have to sit and watch them then on Movie Night and they'd always turn out to be some of the worst movies we'd seen. I gave it 3 stars for the music which is pretty good, and for the surprise ending.
If you like B movies and this is most definitely one of those watch it. What thriller today is worth the watch anyway ? No one has made a good scare movie since I was a kid and movies like Psycho and The Blob took first place in the
Walk-In's not to mention most of Vincent Price's Films.

It's your typical scare film of today, not much new here with the exception of the ending and the soundtrack which I actually did like. It's worth a watch for those 2 things alone.

Stumbled upon this on cable and regret 85 minutes spent on my life! The movie seems to have been written around no-talent musicians playing their songs with a little bit of gore sprinkled about. Sort of like watching a musical, but with terrible singing and acting. I'd rather hear a scratching chalk board than this crap! Every time those dopey kids played a song, (in full regrettably), I found myself hoping that they would be "bumped off" to stop the noise! Seems like the director got a bunch of his friends that play in a garage band or on street corners to get some exposure to help their careers. Didn't work . . . it just irritated and annoyed me. Hope this movie did not cost a lot to produce. All these musician/actors were pretty lame. I'd rather give this 0 stars!
