Editorial Reviews

Four backpackers decide to take a hike in the mountains of Utah. But within the woods lurks a killer. But who...or it? The lazy local sheriff blames bears. But the escalating body count seems to point to a human killer. Ignoring the warning signs, our campers remain lost in the woods...alone...awaiting their fate.

"Don't Go In The Woods... Alone"
I love this movie, Then again I love campy slasher cheese. The kills are nice and bloody and The characters are likable .

The soundtrack is a little annoying but I can overlook that.
The Slasher in the woods movies are my favorite so the title alone lured me to it.

There are some hilarious moments in the film in the form of whacked out over the top cameo characters that get sliced and diced before they become annoying.
I was delighted when it finally came out on DVD.
I had wore my VHS copy out.
It doesn't bother me when the quality of the DVD is a little grainy after all that's all part of the look and feel of 70's and 80's low budget slasher flicks.

In my top 25 retro Slashers for splatter,cheese appeal and over all feel of the movie. It's definitely not intended to be taken too seriously, It's a fun ride that's somewhat of a cult sensation in it's own right.

I remember seeing this movie years ago, and for a long time I seemed to remember it being pretty scary. After recently watching "Don't go in the Woods...Alone!" again, I realized I was confusing this movie with another under-the-radar 80's slasher called "Just Before Dawn". Where "Dawn" actually tries to frighten the viewer, "Woods" sets out to.....well I'm not really sure? While it is a slasher flick, and it does feature buckets of blood, I don't think they were really setting out scare people. You will be chuckling throughout the movie, you can't help it. The basic story of two couples on a weekend camping trip serves as just a backdrop while a furry mountain man seems to slash his way around a mountain full of girls on rollerskates, newlyweds, birdwatchers, and even a guy in a wheelchair??!! Seriously, at about every 5 minutes for the duration of the film we are introduced to some new character, only to watch them get sliced and diced. This movie has to have one of the biggest body counts of any 80's slasher film made. So if you are just into having a goofy good time, laughing at the maniacal hillbilly whose shriek/laugh sounds like a villain from Scooby-Doo, machete his way through the countryside, offing about a dozen or so victims, then I can't recommend this movie highly enough.

I was never one to believe that a movie could be so BAD's GOOD! That was until I watched "Don't go in the Woods". This no-budget b-flick is so extra cheesy it should have been sold with a bonus box of saltine crackers. The soundtrack is undescribe-able.. I have not a clue how they made some of those sounds and, sometimes the music plays at odd times when nothing is really happening. I recall one actress that spoke these lines: "I can't believe my eyes! It's over!" ..she utters these lines as if she is asking for a cup of tea.. not as though in relief that the nightmare she has just endured is now over. Don't expect the production values of even a "Friday the 13th" film.. in fact dont expect any production values at all. The story (if you want to call it a story) about four campers that enter these woods and soon discover they have invaded a madmans territory. Sound familar? Although there are only the four main campers, about every 8 to 10 minutes a random camper appears only for a brief moment just to add to the films body count. If all of this isnt enough to having you running out to purchase this movie, you also should be informed that this movie has the ugliest women I have ever seen in a slasher movie. So dog ugly in fact.. you want them to be slaughtered first, thats when you realize they are in it for the long haul. Believe it or not this film has generated a fan base.. in fact I believe two huge fans do a bonus commentary on the dvd. My guess is that these fans love this movie for all the things I just wrote about because, there isn't any other explaination. This one truly contains more cheese than the entire state of Wisconsin.

I have been such a big fan of this movie ever since I saw it when I was younger. I first rented a "tarnished" VHS copy from my local video store when I was about 13. Being a huge horror movie buff, I fell in love with this movie!!

Just a heads up to others, if you can't handle low budget movies with bad acting or no real storyline.. then this movie isn't for you!! Also, there is a level of gore that might be to much for some!

Although "Don't go in the Woods ..alone" is a very low-budget cheesy 1982 horror film, it is definitly one that I love. I was so happy when I heard this movie was finally coming to dvd!!

The movie is presented in it's orginal full frame version, supervised by the director (James Bryan) it's what he orginally shot the movie in.

Special Features included:

-Making of from the set (1 hour)

-interview appearences (15mins)

-poster and still gallery


The dvd also comes with two commentary tracks. The first commentary is just with the director James Bryan. The second commentary is a bonus commentary with director and members of the band CKY.

I found this dvd to be presented very nicely and i'm proud to see this movie finally on DVD!!
