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.A Night in the Woods [DVD
