Editorial Reviews

Agnes Bruckner, Patricia Clarkson and cult icon Bruce Campbell star in this frightening horror film about Heather (Bruckner) a neglected teenager who is sent away to an all-girls private school located deep in the middle of a forest. Watched over by a sinister head mistress (Clarkson) and her staff, Heather is tormented by her classmates and desperate to go home. Something tells her there's something sinister out there in the woods -- and it won't be letting her leave any time soon.

Customer Reviews

I didn't expect much from this movie, but was very pleasantly surprised.
Music lover in Omaha
The main problem with the film is that they apparently forgot that too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.
Free Thinker
I can't think of one modern horror movie; aside from "High Tension", that creates that same sense of dread.

I was lucky enough to see this on the big screen at Fantastic Fest in Austin last night. After following the film's history online for the past two years, as it was made under the United Artists banner, which was later absorbed into Sony Pictures, and theatrical release dates came and went, my expectations weren't that high. Lo and behold, however, this is a very fun and lovingly crafted film that will no doubt gain a sizable cult following over the years thanks to this DVD release. I enjoyed Lucky McKee's film "May" but was truly disappointed in his Masters of Horror offering, "Sick Girl" -- but this film feels like it comes from a much stronger, more self-assured director with excellent pacing and art direction, strong performances from everyone involved (especially Agnes Bruckner, Patricia Clarkson and fan favorite Bruce Campbell!), and an emphasis on mood and atmosphere over graphic shocks. The film is set in 1965, which only helps to give the film a timeless quality; if you didn't know better you'd think this was a early to mid-70s release that was recently "discovered" and makes a terrific addition to the "schoolgirls and supernatural skullduggery" subgenre ala "Suspiria." Great fun, and worthy of more respect than the studio(s) gave it for sure...if Sony's Screen Gems can release pure drivel like "The Covenant" yet bury this flick with zero fanfare, then all is not right with the world.

By the way, PLEASE give John Tuturro's "Romance and Cigarettes" (another UA-Sony merger casualty) a US release next, guys!

There isn't much plot to this movie. The menace the girls face in their gloomy private school is a murky muddle. But I still found this movie absorbing and worthwhile. All the good is in the acting and in the atmospherics.

Agnes Bruckner is daunting as the rebellious teen. She projects the kind of sullen resentment that you feel could tip over at any moment into vengeful hatred. She has an equally well-cast nemesis playing the smug blonde bully at the school. Among the cold, stern teachers and administrators employed there, the teacher with the neck tic leaves the most indelible impression. That tic is a malicious hangman's twist that seems to be delivered by some invisible haunting hand that reaches down to her at unpredictable moments.

But the ultimately ominous performance is turned in by Patricia Clarkson as headmistress. She shows how frightening a persistently quiet monotone can be. It's proof of how a human's intense calm control can be so much scarier than any rampaging monster.

This isn't a slasher movie where girls at a boarding school get whacked one-by-one. This is more of an old-fashioned supernatural thriller where the elements of nature (albeit here in confused conspiracy) surround and descend on you.

Format: DVD
The biggest question I have about "The Woods" is why is it rated R?? There is very little gore, no nudity or language, it seems the target audience for this flick would be teenage girls, so I'm not sure why the Adult rating? Outside of that, "The Woods" isn't a bad little movie. I won't dive into the specifics as I hate throwing out spoilers. I had no idea what this film was about, and enjoyed just letting it unfold. I was kind of hoping for a "Nerd-Out-For-Revenge" flick like "Evilspeak", "Ginger Snaps" or "The Craft", but unfortunately "The Woods" doesn't really fit this catagory. Another reviewer likens "The Woods" to those 1970's supernatural horror flick, and I fully agree, only "The Woods" has more production value.
Should you buy this movie? I don't know if I recommend a purchase, but you could do a lot worse than popping this into you Netflix account.

Like the previous reviewer, I was able to catch this at Fantastic Fest in Austin. It's a solid horror film, certainly one that rises above its direct-to-DVD status. There is an especially good performance by Patricia Clarkson, and the rest of the cast does fine. The only real caveat is that the movie isn't particularly "scary" in the classic sense. It's more of a dark dramedy really, with a strong sense of dread throughout.

There are two types of people who will be drawn to this movie...fans of Bruce Campbell and fans of "up and coming" horror director, Lucky McKee. Let me be frank, do not purchase this just to see B-movie legend Bruce Campbell. He has a minor role and to focus on him would take away from the other merits of the film. Lucky McKee has crafted a chilling horror movie and it's certainly worth tracking down.

Agnes Bruckner plays the role of fiery red head Heather Fasulo, a troubled youth sent away to an all girl school. Falburn Academy is a place where young girls blossom into fine ladies. Of course there is some sinister stuff going on, and making heads or tails of it all is part of the fun. Soon after our girl Heather gets settled in she starts having some f'ed up nightmares and girls begin to go missing. The all female teaching staff is delightfully creepy, but the poignantly calm headmistress, Miss Traverse (Patricia Clarkson), steals the show. Everybody in this movie is carrying some sort of secret and McKee lets his yarn unravel at a snail's pace.

There are some genuinely frightening moments but the brooding atmosphere McKee creates is top notch. His relentless use of ethereal and demonic whispering really makes your skin crawl. Needless to say I was effectively creeped out once some of the madness starts. After the mystery has been revealed in full, the movie really picks up steam. Bruce Campbell's role expands towards the final act and fans of his certainly won't be disappointed with his performance. The ending leaves no stone unearthed and the plot is wrapped up nicely, which is always nice. Heather's tale is an interesting one and being patient to witness the conclusion is rather rewarding.
