When estranged brothers Adam and Clint attempt to reconnect over a week-long hunting trip in remote Washington State, they find the tables turned by a mysterious presence lurking in the forest. Convinced that they are now besieged by a supernatural presence, the siblings begrudgingly agree on only one thing: they will have to put aside their differences and work together if they plan on making it out of these dark woods alive.

If you go down to the woods today...
8 March 2017 | by tattoopigSee all my reviews

Two brothers go into the woods on a hunting trip to repair their fractured relationship, only to find that they are not the only ones hunting! The star of this film is the scenery - the most beautiful forests and mountains and valleys, all filmed from the air. But as the characters get closer to danger, this all changes and the landscape becomes dry, denuded and barren.

There is a lot of time spent on the relationship of the two lead characters, but this is not at all boring because it is so realistic and the acting so strong. For me, the relationship between the brothers is a metaphor for our broken relationship with Nature; the creature, Nature itself getting payback for the damage inflicted by us.

There is a great twist ending to the film, which is always a favorite trope for me (I am an 80's "kid", when twists were mandatory!)...

I highly recommend this film and will be adding it to my collection.
