Just when you thought it was safe to go in the woods
2 July 2013 | by MikeThePikeFilmsSee all my reviews

Solid flagship effort from Director, Michael Storch. A haunting, if not driving ambient score serves as the backbone of a film that starts out as what many may think to be just another slasher movie; but as the film unfolds, it's refreshing to find a solid backstory supporting the events at hand. It's evident that the budget constrained producers in terms of available talent pool for cast, but there are a few players that are simply outstanding, taking otherwise familiar moments and making them unique and memorable. Overall, this is an ambitious but effective film that shows us that micro-budget does not have to be limited to schlock. Definitely worth a watch!
