On a different note...
Don't Go in the Woods looks like it was made by a bunch of friends who got together in the woods and shot something random, but with milestones in mind. It doesn’t look scripted. It’s different. The main cast impersonate a band, and they can actually sing and play their instruments. Whatever the budget on this was, there’s talent to compensate for the unaffordable.
I let the music of this film intoxicate me until I realized it wasn’t just about music. It’s a musical. By definition, a musical uses lyrics as dialogue, which wasn’t always the case, here. As the very slim plot thickens, Don't Go in the Woods become a divisive film. It’s not exactly what the title suggests, and it’s not even the horror movie parody it first appears to be.
It’s a slasher flick with a small body count. It hints at a supernatural factor that may or may not exist. It’s rough around the edges. It’s minimalist. Some scenes make no sense, but what doesn’t make sense is easily excused by the surreal vibe the creators instigated. I can’t say that I cared for the tunes, which is disappointing considering the nature of this film.
