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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Murder Musical, Really, Whats NOT to Love? February 7, 2013
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good tunes -- B-movie July 13, 2013
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the art... April 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
Review by Ruby: A young man takes his indie band deep into the woods for a weekend of complete solitude to find song-writing inspiration. But soon, they find they are not alone at all.
Vincent D'Onofrio, in his feature-length directorial debut, has taken a group of non-actors and 12 days of filming in the woods, expertly mixed them, and turned it all into a little gem of a scary movie. It has all the elements of a good slasher flick: film editing that creates a mysterious aura, creepy musical sound effects, foreshadowing, and screams and blood enough to satisfy any slasher-phile but not so much as to disconcert those of us who prefer psychological thrillers over gratuitous sadistic violence. Call it Grand Guignol for the thinking audience.
But do not underestimate the musical part of this slasher musical. Sam Bisbee has written a killer (pun intended) soundtrack of indie rock songs that engage as well as entertain. I'm nowhere near being a young person any more, and I was afraid the music might not be to my liking, but Bisbee writes such interesting, intelligent music with truly poetic lyrics, and the kids' voices mastered the nuances so well, I found this becoming my new favorite soundtrack. The music integrated with the images wonderfully, making a perfect blend of sight and sound.
D'Onofrio, with his vast and versatile acting experience, did a brilliant job of casting these musicians/waiters and an even more brilliant job showing them the art of appearing totally natural on camera.
The script was conceived and written by D'Onofrio, Bisbee, and Joe Vinciguerra. Please do not let this be their last film collaboration! Their fresh ideas and sly sense of humor melded into a thoroughly enjoyable, if violent, evening of entertainment. Tell your friends. Pass it on. Just...don't go in the woods alone.
