fun thriller
23 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

In The Deep Woods is one of those fun thrillers from the early 90s, and the final performance from talented Anthony Perkins. The story goes like this: Joanna (Rosanna Arquette) finds herself stalked by a detective (Perkins) after an acquaintance is murdered by a serial killer dubbed as the deep woods killer. Joanna is unsure who the killer is, but she is suspicious of many people, including a cop (Will Patton), the detective (Perkins), her boyfriend (D.W. Moffett), and her brother (Christopher Rydell).

It really was hard to tell who the killer was and in the end it is revealed. The atmosphere and music in the film really helped it tremendously. Arquette, Perkins, Moffett, Rydell, Patton, and Kimberly Beck all give great performances. Worth watching made-for-TV movie. 9/10
