Why it's Not a Good Idea to ride a wheelchair in the Woods!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Don't Go in the Woods...Alone! (DVD)
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.
