Did You Know?


Shortly after the final cut of the film was edited and post-production complete, a lightning strike irreparably damaged the hard drive the final cut of the film was stored on, completely destroying the film. Director Michael Pleckaitis was forced to start from scratch and completely re-edit the film. The process was so time-consuming and frustrating, that he never wanted to direct make another film. As a result, he never made the planned third film in the "tree-logy" - "Trees 3: Regeneration". He took a three-year hiatus before beginning production on "Silent". See more »

Conformation that less is more !!!!
25 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the follow up to the 2000 effort Trees, which was a homage to Jaws.

This, however, tries to flesh out the story. In the original the town of Hazlewood is terrorized by a great white pine. In this the town is beset by a horde of Killer Christmas trees.

I did think that the original was a bit interesting, but this did not live up to that one. It looks like this had a bigger cast and more in the budget and the general look of the film was more professional. However if there was any film that shouted out "less is more" then it's this one. I feel that showing the Killer Christmas trees so frequently and full frame was a mistake, as the CGI that was used for this effects was poor and instead of adding anything, just made it look silly.

The cast seem to take it seriously enough, but I really struggled through this one. In the films defense. This may have been due to the poor sound quality on my copy of the DVD and I really struggled to hear what was going on, which did not help.
