Storyline

Low budget filmmaker, JAYSON (Glenn Plummer) has made the movie of his dreams... but to his dismay, it can't sell in Hollywood. The distributors tell him "... you have nothing exploitative in your movie. Add some sex scenes, more violence, and maybe we'll buy your film." The distraught filmmaker approaches his neophyte, semi-psychotic producer, BRAVO (Blaine Cade) and tells him, "... put together a cast and crew... we're going to re-shoot and give them what they want!" Bravo nervously tells him, "We're out of money. " Jayson screams at him, "I don't care. Do WHATEVER you have to do!" Bravo enlists a young movie crew to follow them into the remote back woods of the Great Bear Mountains by telling them "There's no money, but when we sell this, you'll all get a big piece of the profits for your efforts... and great craft service!" Various 'B' movie actors, including stuntman BURT (Edward Hendershott), and his gorgeous wannabe actress girlfriend, ASHLEY (Linda Bella), join them as Jayson ... Written by Anonymous

Disconcerting backwoods monster movie
4 March 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

On the entry point of what looks like a run-of-the-mill backwoods slasher, a dizzy blonde gets pounded by a black dude under a tent before the latter gets slashed by a bird-faced killer off-camera. Then a director yells "cut !" and we get to meet a cinema crew shooting an additional sex scene for their low-budget horror movie. The director is a tyrant, the boom operator is lecherous and the girlfriend of the aforementioned black guy wants to join the amateurish cast.

The next half-hour is a macabre farce, where the ensemble piece slowly gets diced off by giant bugs in-between a lot of zany bickering. Cut to a X-Files duo exploring these same woods with some heavy artillery and a mysterious agenda.

"Monsters in the Woods" is an unexpectedly funny take on guerrilla movie-making and may also be a homage to low-budget horror movies of the 50's, with the giant monsters and the satanic cults. The script is a hodgepodge of ideas, which to my delight flew in every directions up until the hysterical finale. There's magic in this mess, though I would not recommend it to anybody looking for something in particular, because it's not something in particular. It's a bit of everything, done with improvised flair and not a lot of budget. As usual, it's difficult to determine if Linda Bella is a terrible actress or if she does this on purpose.
