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.

If you want to see good acting and good filming with good special effects, dont get this movie. Now if you want a crazy wild man jumping up and down yelling arrrrrrrrr and chopping off limbs (great crappy special effects) with rediculous amounts of blood flying through the air, then this is the movie for you, as it was for me. Enjoy

highly recommended for anyone looking for the best of the worst. if you give this film one star its because you dont get the joke. of course its not effective in its attempts! but once you get past that, deep within lies a cinematic classic that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
