Storyline

For five adventurous friends, visiting the legendary murder site of the Redwood House has all the hallmarks of being an exciting and thrilling camping weekend away. A popular site for revellers and party goers, each year on the exact date of the famous local family massacre, people from around the country head out to the site to have fun and scare each other. Events take a bloody turn for the worse when the innocent campers discover the Redwood legend is in fact a horrible bloody reality, which turns the unsuspecting victims into prey for a mysterious axe wielding maniac that has remained dormant for 20 years. Written by Lorraine Keith

Trivia

The German (Dubbed) version released on the 24th April 2015 is not the mastered movie sent over by the original Scotish based production company. Music & Sound Fx have been dramatically changed by the distributor, and in some cases result in multiple music tracks from different parts of the film playing at the same time. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, minute 4:56, Jessica (Rebecca Wilkie) walks into the wood with Pamela. At minute 5:55, at the same place and situation, she looks notoriously skinnier and her make up is a lot different than the previous scene (another eyebrow design, false eyelashes, almost clownish).

Dismal Scottish take on Friday the 13th
13 May 2015 | by s3276169See all my reviews

The Redwood Massacre is a Scottish take on the Friday the 13th series of movies. Regrettably this horror flick does not live up to expectations, its a truly dismal affair, that could have succeeded with more careful handling.

This film would have worked much better without the grotesque and unnecessarily gratuitous use of violence.It would have benefited too, from gradually ratcheting up the tension, before introducing the serial killer. Indeed, putting aside the gore factor, the chief reason why this film is such a flop, is it lacks the "jump in your seat factor", found in its US counterpart.

The acting from this films cast does it no favours either. Its not bad as such, its just rather flat. Indeed, the main characters seem bored by the whole affair. Its almost a relief when some of them get bumped off.

All in all, the idea behind this film is a good one, that taps into a well established horror genre. The story's not terrible, nor is the setting. Sadly, everything else is. Three out of ten from me.
