Vinegar Syndrome gives us the 1981 slasher Don't Go in The Woods! The film itself is a cheese fest full of backwoods kills and poor acting! I still love it tho lol. Like Vinegar did with their other releases they really cleaned the film up extremely well. It is shocking how good it looks. Only signs of small scratches here and there but all together it was an amazing job they are becoming one of my favorite companies of these releases transfer wise. So if you like backwoods slashers definitely pick up this release I love it so much!!!

Yet again another video nasty from the 80's get revived, this is a very cheap and cheesy slasher entry to the series but its still great fun to watch, a group of four backpackers are hiking deep in the woods unknown to them that anyone that goes there is hacked and stabbed by a madman running around using a variation of sharp weapons, plus we see other victims strolling around too getting picked off, there's nothing more to it really, we start off with a few off camera bloody kills but they get better as the movie goes on with bigger bloodier deaths, there's certainly plenty of them but do expect the red paint blood effects for most of them, the cast is ok, all the acting is cheesy and the dialogue is cheesy too, the music score is dramatically over used at times but sounds great with various strange music cues and sound effects, even with its faults the movie is strangely entertaining and really overall is great fun and certainly deserves its place with the other slasher classics in this series, only get this if your a hard-core slasher fan.

"Don't Go In The Woods... Alone" This is a review I wrote in 2007 for the DVD..Will revamp when I see how the Blu Ray quality and extras are.
I love this movie, Then again I love campy slasher cheese. The kills are nice and bloody and The main 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 have worn 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.

It you like horror films that are so bad that you can't help but love them, than DON'T GO IN THE WOODS is the film for you. This film should fall flat on its face, but the comedy (I'm still trying to figure out if it was intentional or not) will keep you chuckling, especially the poor schlub in a wheelchair that spends half the film trying to make it to the top of the trail only to meet a deadly end when he reaches his goal. If you have never seen this film, I suggest that you go in expecting nothing and you will probably have a great time. Very expensive to purchase now since it was the first official film put out by Code Red, who have given us dozens of films we never expected to be released on DVD or Blu-Ray.

This film took beer, lots of beer to get through. This film does have excellent photography. Girls with mullet haircuts, what were they thinking? I kept mistaking them for boys. My favorite scene was the killer's victory dance after throwing wooden spears. He's the missing Knight who says Neep! This film badly needed scenes of girls running topless through the woods.

Ah, the great outdoors. Nothing says summer like going camping in the woods; swimming in a lake; accidentally wiping your rear with poison ivy, or being hacked to bits by a guy who looks as if he got lost between here and The Road Warrior set. And that's just for starters.

Welcome to Don't Go In the Woods; one of the funniest slasher flicks to come out of the 80s.

Four of the ugliest campers to ever grace the screen hike into the woods only to discover that they're being hunted by the Mad Max reject. And they are only the central story. You see, about every five minutes or so, when we're not being shown the same establishing shot of the mountain over and over again, we meet new campers just long enough to see them get killed. We see Dale and his whinny moomoo wearing mother, Dick and Cherry, the ugliest newlyweds to date (take one look at Cherry's nose. It'll give the Wicked Witch of the West a run for its money!), a bird watcher who gets killed by a leaf, the sleeping black couple (that's all they do!), a guy in a wheelchair (what's a dude in a wheelchair doing trying to climb a mountain?), and a slew of others. But have no fear! The long arm of the law will keep everyone safe. Well, except the long arm of the law happens to consist of one of the fattest sheriffs in town (if anyone needed to try and climb a mountain, it's this guy!) and the most feminine deputy ever. Seriously, if I had these two looking out for me, I'd take my chances with the killer Captain Caveman.

This movie should've never seen the light of day. It was even on the UK's Video Nasties List. Its like a can a Pringles; once you start you just can't stop. Theres absolutely no character development and no coherent plot. Even the dialogue is off. It's lip flap parade not seen this bad outside of Tokyo during one of Godzilla's many rampages. I don't know why but I strongly recommend this movie to any one needing a good laugh. It's ultra low budget filmmaking at its worst but its a fun ride and its rewatchability factor is through the roof.

DON'T GO IN THE WOODS is a bottom-rung "Slasher in the woods" entry that follows in the same tradition as JUST BEFORE DAWN and DELIVERANCE. A group of four pre-packaged victims head in to the woods on a camping trip, only to be killed off by a crazed mountain man in a timely fashion. The highly-untrained acting and directing are apparent in every moment of the film, and the story structure is almost non-existent. Only the weakest Slasher movie stereotypes and conventions shine through here, but for everything it lacks in quality, it more than makes up for in bloody killings. Severed limbs, missing heads, and gallons of blood are strewn across the screen, making it far more violent than many of the mid- to late-80's Slashers. Although DON'T GO IN THE WOODS is a terrible film by all accounts, the hardcore Slasher fans will find enough cheesy dialog and brutal deaths to make it worth the watch.

I had heard about this movie for years and was excited to find it on dvd. All I can say is wow. This is one weird movie, the acting is awful and I found myself fast forwarding through the movie looking for anything scary or gruesome.

this is a really bad movie but with lots of blood and gore and unintentional laughs. the narrative makes sense and some of the characters make you want to root for them by the end... even though the script/director did precious little to bring the principle characters to life.

if Don't Go In The Woods Alone was from a first time director, i could easily understand and overlook the film's shortcomings. however, that is not the case. i haven't seen James Bryan's previous films, but i've heard they are good. so what happened here? i honestly don't know.

if you like rough, backwoods exploitation, then it's worth seeing once or twice, but this is not a great film.
