Storyline

Low budget filmmaker, Jayson has made the movie of his dreams... but to his dismay, it can't sell in Hollywood. The distributors tell him "... you have nothing exploitative in your movie. Add some sex scenes, more violence, and maybe we'll buy your film." The distraught filmmaker approaches his neophyte, semi-psychotic producer, Bravo and tells him, "... put together a cast and crew... we're going to re-shoot and give them what they want!" Bravo nervously tells him, "We're out of money. " Jayson screams at him, "I don't care. Do whatever you have to do!" Bravo enlists a young movie crew to follow them into the remote back woods of the Great Bear Mountains by telling them "There's no money, but when we sell this, you'll all get a big piece of the profits for your efforts... and great craft service!" Various 'B' movie actors, including stuntman Burt, and his gorgeous wannabe actress girlfriend, Ashley, join them as Jayson has promised her a role in the movie. After a series of '...

Satire!
25 November 2012 | by goatthoughtSee all my reviews

This movie obviously wasn't playing it straight. The acting was hit or miss, depending on the scene. The monsters were damn cool. The movie was funny and I believe intentionally so.

The cast/crew massacre at the midway point was funny as hell. It was cool role for Glen Plummer and some of the other actors are good as well. There are few that are not so great too. And the crazy-ass explanation the angel gives, with the shooting in the middle and goes right back into the speech, freaking priceless. Monsters in the Woods is a great tongue and cheek time.

Flaws? Sure, but there are more positives than negative. I say give this hard to find gem a go.
