"Don't Go in the Woods" is not technically a remake, however it is very similar to several other movies released before it. These movies include "The Forest", "Friday the 13th", "Friday the 13th Part 2", "Just Before Dawn", "The Final Terror", "The Burning", "Madman", "Humongous", and "Mother's Day". Of all the movies, "Just Before Dawn" has the most in common with "Don't Go in the Woods", and many people confuse the two as being in the same continuity.

"Don't Go in the Woods" also has never been remade, however there are very similar movies that come after its release. These movies include "Wrong Turn", "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End", "Jeepers Creepers", and ''A Perfect Getaway''. Because of its bad reception among genre fans and cult fans, the likeliness of a remake is very slim.

Many people believe that "Don't Go in the Woods" is a sequel to either "The Forest" or "Just Before Dawn". Despite their many similarities, none of these films are connected to each other officially. However, "Don't Go in the Woods" could serve as an unofficial, loose sequel to either "The Forest" or "Just Before Dawn". In fact, in Australia, the officially title for "Don't Go in the Woods" is "The Forest 2", despite the fact that this film was released a year before The Forest was released.

The DVD for "Don't Go in the Woods" was released by Code Red and Media Blasters in November 2007, for the first time ever, with a lot of supplemental material to grab ahold of. Fans of the film seem to be pleased with the extras for a film that generally would receive a bare-bones release.

Extras Include:

Feature Length Commentary by director James Bryan

Feature Length Commentary with Deron Miller of the band CKY, "superfan" David Masco, Star Mary Gail Artz, and director James Bryan

Theatrical Trailer

Hour long featurette by director James Bryan

3 Original Talk Show Interviews from the film's release with director James Bryan and actor Tom Drury

Easter Egg

"Don't Go in the Woods" is labeled a "video nasty" like "The Evil Dead", "Tenebre", "Cannibal Holocaust", "The Burning", "The Last House on the Left", "Day of the Woman", "Eaten Alive", "Cannibal ferox", "The Driller Killer", "Don't Go in the House", "The Dorm That Dripped Blood", "Night School", "The Toolbox Murders", "Reazione a catena", "Don't Answer the Phone!", and "The Prowler".

"Video nasty" was a term coined in the United Kingdom in the 1980s that originally applied to a number of films distributed on video cassette that were criticised for their violent content by elements in the press and commentators such as Mary Whitehouse. While violence in cinema had been a concern for many years, the lack of a regulatory system for video sales combined with the possibility of any film falling into children's hands led to new levels of concern. Many of these "video nasties" were low-budget horror films produced in Italy and the United States. The furore created by the moral crusade against video nasties led to the introduction of the UK's Video Recordings Act 1984 which imposed a stricter code of censorship on videos than was required for cinema release. Several major studio productions ended up being banned on video, falling afoul of legislation that was designed to control the distribution of video nasties.
