Before we even hit the 6 minute mark, Girl In Woods already presents viewers with four nightmare sequences. I even paused it to check the time stamp to make sure I didn’t accidentally skip ahead. Not a mistake. This has to be some kind of record and was worried that I was about to watch 90 minutes of this. My concerns were unfortunately proven right. There are multiple dream within a dream sequences and it gets old Very fast.
These nightmares belong to our lead, Grace (played by Juliet Reeves), who goes to a cabin with her boyfriend Jim (Jeremy London). She verbally recounts her father’s suicide (he shot himself) and how this traumatized her for development sake. They go for a deep walk in the woods and Jim ends up being shot in the head. I assumed he shot himself by accident, but it’s not very clear initially »
Girl in Woods, 2016
Directed by Jeremy Benson.
Grace Walker and her fiancee Jim take a romantic journey into the Smoky Mountains to celebrate their engagement, but after a tragic and fatal accident, Grace is left alone with only the woods and her demons for company…
Across the entirety of Girl in Woods, you get the feeling Jeremy Benson’s movie should have in reality ended up a short film. Such economy would perhaps have allowed for a conceptual punch even just over eighty minutes is too long to deliver, with a central concept that while sounds interesting on paper is scuppered by a poor script and utterly leaden pacing. In essence, Benson’s story is the creation of an urban legend, the origin tale of a later horror picture we haven’t yet seen, but that’s not necessarily »
