Beautiful horror

I have seen "The Woods" on Sunday night in Montreal. We were delighted. We love the stylish 1960 mood. Beautiful production, very creative image making. The actress are great. The plot is unusual.The music is very good. M.Lucky Mckee has the touch with the actors. IT is far better than most of the suspense-horror crap we have seen these late years. The filming reminds me of David Lean style. This film will age with grace.The two main actress are very good together. I think the special effects at the end were not that good. Sometimes, less is better. The lighting in the forest was poor, not scary enough. And I did not like the word "firecrotch".
