"The Woods" is just another example of a film that seemingly seems to possess such potential but is let down by the directing and screenplay. It did seem that "The Woods" had an interestingly complex story, but unfortunately it was far too complex to actually tell to the audience, meaning that we are left confused and underwhelmed by the mixed up finale. "The Woods" however does boast atmospheric and creepy direction, (even though it does look as if it was more of a TV movie than an actual film) unfortunately, the story becomes confused and as twisted as the branches. However, it is intriguing and although it does let you down, it's worth a watch.
