Did You Know?


The Cowman of Copolis Beach (which was an actual event that happened) was the inspiration for the script Something In The Woods. See more »


Dale's hat in the movie is a curved brim style ball cap - a style started in the very late 90's. A cap in the movies time frame would be more a straight brim mesh back 'truckers' style ball cap. His jeans are also a style from today (baggy bottoms with the length bunched at his boots) rather than either the 'flood' style from that time period or the 'rolled-up' style also from that time period.

Refreshing change from all the Hollywood crap
19 July 2016 | by promed-81694See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. Sure, the acting is not great, but I thought the story was really good. Give it a watch if you are interested in a good old fashion thriller with a strong sense of Christian family values. I thought the film's maker's did a really good job of creating an exciting movie without resorting to the lame and tiresome Hollywood recipe of over the top violence and vulgar language. I really liked the camera work too. I just can't stand movies that overuse the shaky hand held camera effects and the quick flashy camera angle changes. Something in the Woods had a nice smooth feel to it and I thought they did a good job of capturing the feel of a late 60's or early 70's era time period. I felt good after watching the movie, unlike a lot of the Hollywood crap that I've seen lately that makes me feel I've just had my brain lobotomized.
