Better than Blair Witch ... Excellent Wood Ape Research
13 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, I just finished the movie and I was pleasantly surprised. This is an excellent wood ape movie! I have no idea how others ranked it so low.

I was impressed that one man wrote, directed, filmed and acted in the production. Very skilled individual. It was well researched and included traits of the "legend" that aren't that well known by the public (example: wood knocks).

I thought the acting was very good -- especially the scenes where the characters breakdown from being frightened. I camp in the deep woods often and I've seen people go into a cocoon when critters are walking around the campsite.

The movie was suspenseful. I suggest watching it late at night with the lights turned off. Yes, it might start off a little slow, but not any slower than Blair Witch. I also liked the ending that has a twist to make you think and debate. If you liked Blair Witch and you are interested in wood apes, you will love this movie IMHO.

It is well worth the time. I think Joe Bob would say, "Check it out."
