A young boy checks out a book titled Evil in the Woods from his local library. He immediately takes the book home, begins to read it and is soon sucked into a strange world set in Mildew Georgia. As the boy reads the book he starts to get sucked into the story just a little too much. Will this will be enough to finish the fractured fable or will he forever get sucked into the pages.

Slightly less professional than the average South American snuff movie.
11 August 2011 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

This convoluted rapscallion debacle seems to fancy itself a horror/comedy of sorts. Now, I've seen my fair share of flicks in this particular subgenre, and EVIL IN THE WOODS exhibits nothing in consuetude with any of them...or with anything else I've ever seen, for that matter.

The twisted corpus of this cinemerde royale concerns a little boy checking out a book called EVIL IN THE WOODS from his local library, and reading from it a fractured fairytale about a group of filmmakers confronting...well...evil in the woods. And just what is "the evil", you might ask? Um...that might include some folks in janky rubber trick-or-treat masks, a dimestore Sasquatch, an alien, and a witch who lives in a deep-forest tumbledown shack(which has a curiously out-of-place modern refrigerator). Also inclusive to this anarchic salmagundi are a couple of midgets and a narrator who talks like Gomer Pyle, intermittently dictating the text of screencards for, presumably, the blind and subliterate.

A migraine-inducing backyard home-movie which is so structurally distempered that it might actually appeal to a select few on some freakish, OMG*WTF level.

2/10. Beyond bad...beyond bizarre...beyond belief.
