When Your Director Would Benefit From A REAL Writer...
18 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's low budget, I get that. I don't know what the budget was, but I can tell you it was enough to make this a decent low budget horror. I've given some low scores before, but never a 1, and this film deserves it. Let me start at a high level. The film is 71mins long including the credits, and in the first 21mins (I went back and checked), we've established that the girl's car has been towed, no one has the $800 to get it out except for "Trust Fund", and "Trust Fund" is a pretty lousy friend who bets his friend $1,800 he can't spend a night alone in the woods were a supposed killer lurks. In fact, these three basic concepts were beaten to death so many times in the first 21mins that foreigners would have enough time to learn enough English to translate what was going on. I'll spare you the math, over 30% of the movie was redundant "on the nose" dialogue that a skilled writer and director would handle well within 5mins. Add another 2mins and our protagonist (?) has convinced his other friends to stay a night out in the woods were "Trust Fund" has bet him $1,800 he won't survive the night "ALONE" -- sure, why not... guess we need more people to be hacked to bits, right? This is followed by a scene of two hikers approaching a man standing still in the middle of the forest in the middle of the night -- because everyone hikes through the woods, and not even on a trail for that matter, at midnight. "Oh, maybe he's just a hiker." Yes, of course... I'll repeat... because hikers like to stand in the middle of the forest in a daze at midnight? Let's say we buy all this... I'd be creeped out and would take a wide circle around such an individual, but these no name confusing characters pass within arms length of the creepy guy standing there, just close enough that he can conveniently stab them. Next scene, let's throw in a random scene where two characters bet $50 they can win a 40yard dash along the quiet residential road... because that's what young 30yr olds do? I wonder if this was just an excuse to get the actress to remove her top so she could be filmed running in a sports bra? I can go on and on, but the dialogue was horrendous, two of the seven(?) actors could actually act, the plot was senseless, and there wasn't enough story to fill an already extremely short 71min feature(?). This is a prime example when you have a director with a little bit of money who knows nothing about story or writing... there's no one to give him a reality check. I see there's an "Into The Woods II" in production? Really? I guess in the end, everyone has the right and ability to pursue their dream, and good on him for doing so. He had a goal, and he got it done. But, this is a review board, and my review was a solid "1(awful)"!!
