When three friends go hiking in Dartmoor jealousies, sexual tensions and strained relationships come to a head turning what should have been a peaceful camping adventure into a terror trip. As collective paranoia reaches fever pitch it becomes clear that there is a much darker force at work in their ancient eerie surroundings. Who or what is after them? And can any one of them survive a night in the woods?

Brody, girlfriend Kerry and her friend Leo go hiking in Dartmoor's Wistman's Woods, named because of its supposedly haunted past.

That night, sexual tension and strained relationships come to a head turning what should have been a peaceful camping adventure into a nightmare.

As paranoia reaches fever pitch it becomes clear that there is a much darker force at work in the ancient surroundings.

Who or what is after them? And who is carrying the camera in that scene where Kerry is running around on her own?

So the director of this film stated he made this because of a dream he had. What he means is, he saw The Blair Witch Project, knows some people and decided to homage it/rip it off.

But it's nowhere near as bad as what I feared. But you cannot watch this film without comparing it to Blair Witch, because it's just too similar, and this is where the film is it's own worst enemy.

There is a sub-plot involving the three, Brody has discovered something about Leo, but it concludes too quickly and it's obvious from the start. And this is the films other problem, the characters are not very likable, so it's difficult to care for them.

There are a couple of good scares, where the sound technicians just decide to make the film extremely loud, and some eerie imagery.

And there is a huge issue regarding who on earth is holding the camera when Kerry is on her own, really makes it less 'realistic'.

But, as i've already said, it's not awful, just too familiar.

It's amazing that this film was ever made. Not because it's particularly bad, but simply because I can't imagine the sales pitch that financed it. It must have gone along the lines of: `A Night in the Woods is a film that's shot entirely from the point of view of a single camera operator and is about three friends who go hiking in the woods, only to get picked off by an evil witch.'

Surely the studio executive listening to that pitch would have said, `Yeah, but... isn't that the Blair Witch Project?' And they'd be right. Only this one is made in England. Otherwise it's pretty similar.

As I say, it's not as bad as it could be. The three characters are pretty amusing and there's a fair bit of UK vs US banter between the English girl and her American boyfriend, plus they're pretty realistic in the way they all interact. Then there's the scenery. The film is a decent advert for the English countryside, showing some really scenic shots of Dartmoor. These become increasingly creepy as the night vision techniques are used.

However, from a promising start, we're soon treated to a pub-load of country bumpkins that happen to tell them sinister tales, foretelling what's to come (ala every other film of this type). Then, after a long build up with nothing vaguely supernatural happening, odd things start to occur (and one of the three vanishes mysteriously, again, just like Blair Witch).

I thought that perhaps it shouldn't have been filmed from the first-person and the film-makers should have stuck with a more simple approach. At least that way it would be a little less like Blair Witch.

Take Blair Witch, add some weird sexual tension and place it in a English forest. Welcome to A Night In The Woods.

Using a similar blueprint to the found footage classic, the movie ups the scares by adding a sense of genuine malice between the two male characters who have enough to contend with as paranoia that they are not alone in an extremely isolated location.

When found footage works, tiny details created by happenstance often make or break the movie. In this case, as cast members point a night vision camera into the gloom a moth hitting the lens is enough to make you jump. When a girl lies knocked out, a beetle creeping over a nearby stone is a nice touch that can't be faked (well it could be, obviously, but it isn't...).

A Night In The Woods is an interesting movie. As much an examination of a man who only wants to view the world as mediated through his camera - which he uses to obsessively keep a video diary - as it is a tense wilderness horror film, taste will dictate whether you enjoy the shaky cam fright flick experience, but if you do, this one should satisfy.

Following the death of her father, Kerry(Anna Skellern), accompanies her American boyfriend Brody(Scoot McNairy) and the mysterious Leo, possibly her cousin, on a camping trip into the Norfolk moors. Tensions run high between the two men, both with an army of skeletons in their closets, culminating in Brody abadoning the campsite at the dead of night. That's when their trouble really starts.....
Okay, this might just be another found footage film, a British Blair Witch, but it's competantly enough made and has plenty of atmosphere and good performances to hold the interest. The problem with a film such as this is its success relies on the effectiveness of its conclusion. When a film takes a long time to build up to the main event, it better be good. In this repect, 'A Night In The Woods' ulimately fails as it lacks the cohesion needed to provide the big bang ending the audience expects and deserves.
Major plus points are a great performance by McNairy as the troubled Brody, obsessively recording everything with his camera, some wonderful cinematography and of course the perfect location. It's these rather more incidental pleasures, rather than the plot itself that keeps the film afloat. So, to sum up, an entertaining enough effort that will probably satisfy one viewing, but a very slight picture all said and done. 3 out of 5.
