Gory shocker from Chile.
7 February 2015 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Hidden in the Woods" by Patricio Valladares tells the story of two sisters Ana and Anny who live with their sadistic drug dealing father somewhere in Chilean countryside.The girls are beaten and raped by their father.Their deformed brother is born after one particularly vicious rape.When two cops are chainsawed to death by the father of Ana and Anny the girls flee with their younger brother and hide in a remote cabin in the woods.A violent pack of thugs wants them dead and soon bloodbath ensues."Hidden in the Woods" offers plenty of nasty gore and a bit of sexual violence.All male characters are repulsive and the narration can be quite confusing at times.Still if you like vicious no-holds-barred exploitation cinema give this one a look.If not stick to politically correct garbage from Hollywood.6 chainsaws out of 10.
