Crime thriller starring Patrick Muldoon as Matt Sullivan, a man haunted by a tragic drink-driving accident several years before in which he knocked down and killed a young girl. His guilt about the accident has caused him to suffer paranoid delusions, and now, driving to visit the family of his new girlfriend, Dawn (Keegan Connor Tracy) in their reclusive woodland home, the inner demons seem to be getting worse. First he is attacked by an axe-wielding psychopath in his motel room, then Dawn mysteriously disappears before turning on him herself. It transpires that Dawn and her family have their own very personal reasons for taking their revenge on the terrified Matt...

Matt Sullivan goes with his new girlfriend Dawn to see her parents who live in the remote "Blackwoods". They stop at a hotel. After sex Dawn goes for a walk and while she's gone, a man with an ax breaks into the motel room and tries to kill Matt. Neither the motel owner nor the local sherriff believs him. Dawn is still missing so Matt goes to look for her.

The story is pretty good and Blackwoods could have been a good movie. But it suffers from way too many flashback sequences and it's not until about halfway into the movie that they start to make any sense; before that they're just confusing and annoying and distract from enjoying the story. Clint Howard is funny as the motel owner but the rest of the cast is pretty weak. All in all not a bad film but it cold have been better. Weak 3 star rating.

Patrick Muldoon stars in this really creapy triller/horror which brought director & co-writer Uwe Boll to international fame.
Matt Sullivan is haunted by the death of a girl he caused during a drunken drive and things start to come back to bite him when he and his girlfriend Dawn go to visit her parent's who live in Blackwoods.

The plot will keep you guessing as to the truth behind events right to the end. The only real complaint I can make is the over use of arty action sequences which do make the eyes go funny after the longer segements.

All in all, this is a great B-movie thriller, the kind of films I wish there were more of.

Oh dear. Just the name 'Uwe Boll' should be enough of a description. Except that this time the film is unintentionally hilarious (whereas Alone in the Dark and Bloodrayne were 'just' bad). I get the strong inpression that Boll thought he was being clever with the script; every 'twist' is visible almost immediately and some of the dialogue is just so inane and forced that... I guess the best word is 'Boll-sh*t'.

Okay, it does have a strange kind of charm. Rather like 'The Haunting of Seacliff Inn' - Blackwoods is a film that was made at least 20 years too late and either with not enough budget or too much budget. Turn off your brain, crack open a six-pack and invite some friends over for a drinking game because it's going to be a hilariously bumpy ride.

Best surprise ending! See Patrick Muldoon in the Blackwoods 18 Jun. 2003
By James McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Matt (Patrick Muldoon) takes his girlfriend to the backwoods. Along the way, Matt has flashbacks of his past. He's been in this part of the backwoods before. First they are pulled over by the Sheriff (Michael Pare), who thinks he knows Matt somehow before. Then they reach a motel with a seedy hotel manager (Clint Howard) who only rents rooms with porno television to couples. After some pleasure, Matt falls asleep and has a nightmare of his past. Suddenly he is awaken by an ax-carrying man at the door. After telling and showing the lazy hotel manager what just happened, alone in the room now, he goes a little crazy for a while. So scared. So frustrated. Later he takes a walk in the backwoods and come across a house.
Patrick Muldoon, we remember from the NBC serial "Days Of Our Lives" (Austin 1992-95, 2011-12).
Michael Pare has done good work in Eddie and the CruisersEddie and the Cruisers (1983) / Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! (1988) (Totally Awesome 80s Double Feature) (1983) and The Philadelphia Experiment(1994).
Clint Howard was the little boy with the bear in the Gentle Ben tv series (1967-1969) and he is the brother of Ron.
Nice tune: "Out Of The Rain" written and performed by Charlemaine.
Best surprise ending of a story about the male lead I've seen in a long time. No specials on this DVD.

IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE 28 Jan. 2004
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Patrick Muldoon sure would be a household name if everyone watched the countless straight to videos this man has made. Muldoon possesses a swarmy sexuality, and a boy next door demeanor that has placed him in several heroic type roles. In "Blackwoods" however, Muldoon is cast in a role in which his character can be questioned. Director Uwe Boll uses kinetic flashbacks to illustrate this story of a man who is held hostage by a strange backwoods family, who hold him responsible for the death of their youngest daughter. Muldoon struck and killed her with his car. The family believes he was drunk when he did it and didn't get the justice they feel he deserved. So they decide to exact their revenge?
Or wait a minute...did it happen the way Muldoon remembers?
This is an intriguing, enigmatic tale where nothing is as it seems. Muldoon does a great job, with some good support from Michael Pare, Will Sanderson and zany Clint Howard.
The ending is a surprise, even though you should see it coming!
Still, quite different for Muldoon and worthwhile.

Not bad but too many unneeded flashback sequences 28 Nov. 2009
By NoWireHangers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Matt Sullivan goes with his new girlfriend Dawn to see her parents who live in the remote "Blackwoods". They stop at a hotel. After sex Dawn goes for a walk and while she's gone, a man with an ax breaks into the motel room and tries to kill Matt. Neither the motel owner nor the local sherriff believs him. Dawn is still missing so Matt goes to look for her.

The story is pretty good and Blackwoods could have been a good movie. But it suffers from way too many flashback sequences. The story jumps back and forth in time and it's not until about halfway into the movie that they start to make any sense; before that they're just confusing and annoying and distract from enjoying the story. Clint Howard is funny as the motel owner but the rest of the cast is pretty weak. All in all not a bad film but it cold have been better. Weak 3 star rating.

good movie very suspense thriller!!!!! 8 Oct. 2013
By Arthur Feager - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
it was a good movie very suspense thriller,it was shipped fast,in good condition for the price i paid,and thank you very much..
well done and it holds your attention. a frightening suspense film. 28 Dec. 2014
By lawrence chan - Published on Amazon.com
OMG it turned out to be a crazy movie about hillbillies and moonshiner types. Accccck! There are no supernatural or occult elements in this movie, however, the setting is a combination of dark woods and long dark (very dark) seemingly endless wooded roads; this particular graphic recipe plays easily to a personal and completely irrational phobia of mine, so that made up for the lack of ill tempered spirits and shadowy threats from the great beyond. Perhaps it's an urban thing or too much Rod Serling.

Anyhow, it's quite a good movie featuring numerous very clever plot twists and good old fashioned solid script.
The editing must have been very tricky but he/she pulled it off nicely so the many flashbacks which could easily have muddied the waters, were pulled together into coherent sequences that were vital to the overall telling of this dark little story of human failings and revenge.
