Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
DON’T GO IN THE WOODS is sound advice, especially when there's a killer on the loose. First-time director Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Law & Order: Criminal Intent) explores love, greed and ruthlessness in this twisted musical/horror hybrid, telling the story of a young band who heads to the woods to get away from their everyday lives and focus on writing new songs. Hoping to walk away from the trip with new tunes that will score them their big break, they instead find themselves in the middle of a nightmare beyond comprehension.
Displaying the musical talents of a gifted ensemble cast as they sing songs penned by acclaimed singer-songwriter Sam Bisbee, DON’T GO IN THE WOODS unexpectedly veers from terrifying horror to musical moments that wouldn't be out of place on Glee, truly keeping viewers captivated, terrified and entertained in equal measure.

If you like B movies and this is most definitely one of those watch it. What thriller today is worth the watch anyway ? No one has made a good scare movie since I was a kid and movies like Psycho and The Blob took first place in the
Walk-In's not to mention most of Vincent Price's Films.
It's your typical scare film of today, not much new here with the exception of the ending and the soundtrack which I actually did like. It's worth a watch for those 2 things alone.
The plot is fair but weak at the end. The premise is the same. The acting is better than average (for B-movies; it's not Brad Pitt or Angelina). The soundtrack however is outstanding.
"It's a stupid movie because they sing." ---- IT'S A MUSICAL.
"It's a stupid movie because the acting/singing is not A-list" ---- IT'S A B-MOVIE.
If you like thought provoking alternative / rock / new age folk crossed tunes, you'll love this. If you you'd rather your music be nose-bleeding non-thoughtful noise or cry in the beer type, you'll probably hate it.
Bottom line is ---- IT IS A B-MOVIE. If you don't like them, don't watch them. If you like them, watch this one. At the very least you'll appreciate the new approach.
Perhaps the first issue that this indie faces is that it positioned itself as a horror film (more specifically a slasher). It even shares its title with a horrendously awful 1981 splatter-fest. I'll be generous to the horror elements in this film when I say that they seem like a complete afterthought, just tacked on to make things slightly more interesting. Anyone who approaches "Don't Go In The Woods" expecting thrills and chills will be sorely disappointed. The killings are not distinguished by any real cleverness, are relatively infrequent until the finale, and are explained away using the most cliche'd device in horror movie history. I was amused (and not at all surprised) when the final solutions became apparent, but it is all so lazily constructed and logistically head-scratching to make much of an impact. And still, once the final minutes of the film kicked into overdrive--I went along with it and even got a chuckle from the film's signature closing line.
The film, however, is far more of a musical than anything.Read more ›

For what it is, it's an entertaining movie. The music is rather good. Some of the acting is not so good, but that part of what makes it a good class B movie.Published 18 months ago by Gia

I didn't really expect this movie to be groundbreaking, but Don't Go in the Woods just feels like a rerun. The songs are a good diversion from the main focus. Read morePublished on July 25, 2013 by Jennifer Colbert
