A man in a furry suit chasing people in the forest..., 15 May 2012
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

Right, well "Lost Woods" starts off as your average late teenage camping movie far, far out in the woods. Of course, in ideal setting for a horror or slasher movie. And the movie was shot in a great way, with lots of really nice shots in the forest. But then it all went downhill.

The movie was so amazingly slow in progressing, that I actually dozed off twice within the first half of the movie. Yeah, it was that uneventful and dull. But once you get past the halfway marker of the movie's length, then finally the movie picks up pace. Then you also get to see the creature.

And speaking of the creature. Are you kidding me? A man in a furry suit and with blueish-glowing eyes? Yeah, alright, it was oh-so-scary (hope you can see the sarcasm oozing off the words here). Sure it was the creature from the cover of the movie, but I had expected something else, not just some pumped-up sasquatch wanna-be man in a furry suit. That was such an eyesore. It was fast at foot, agile and quite adept at running, despite looking as big as a bear. And when it attacked people, it was throwing punches at them like a pro boxer. Wait, what? Yeah, it was jabbing and punching at the people it attacked. And it also had unbelievable jumping abilities, managing to jump clear over a rather wide chasm.

"Lost Woods" has a relatively small list of people on the casting roster, and the people in the movie actually did good enough jobs, so it wasn't here that the movie was haltering. No, it was in its slow pace and stupid story - and the fuzzy ewok on steroids.

This movie was rather disappointing and there were no scare moments at all in the movie, unless you consider dozing off a couple of times scary.

The worst part of "Lost Woods" had got to be the transformation scene at the ending of the movie. That was just so cheesy. And, oh dear God, how could they have come up with that and said to themselves 'yeah, that seems possible'? I was shaking my head in disbelief and laughing so hard here.

Now, if you like monster movies, scary movies, thrillers, etc. then "Lost Woods" is perhaps not the best of choices. What would make the movie worth watching is the cinematography, because there really was some nice camera work and great shots in the forest in the movie. Sadly, however, that wasn't enough to make the movie interesting for me.

This is a movie that will never make it for a second watching in my lifetime, it just wasn't worth the effort.
