The Woods is one such a movie you might watch forgetting what's around you it takes you right where it all takes place, the boarding school from the moment it begins. It is a story of an impudent, "gifted" girl in a repressive boarding school with it's own dark secret. Having been a fan of Lucky McKee, the way he portrays his female leads, for example, May (2002), this was another addition to his frail yet fatal characters. surrounding his leads is a tragedy, a woeful attraction. This film is one that would leave you in awe rather than scare or horror. it's a slow paced mood is enjoyable as lingering memories as if we experience it firsthand and not watching it as audience. The film is set in 60s and it remains loyal to its set up. The subtlety of the film is what is scary if you must!
