God knows how anyone (Mr K Arts "keirarts") can call this film "awsome" (sic!)

The Woods really is a dreadful muddle, and you get the impression that the film makers put together a list of scenes they thought would be worth including, then picked out the ones they would use with a pin.

The occasional glimpse of what kind of a creepy viewing it could have been if anyone had taken the trouble to actually write a decent script with a sympathetic lead character is cancelled out by a disjointed collection of would-be "psychic", would-be "witchy" and would-be scary snippets that can't (and don't) add to a storyline that isn't there in the first place.

At the end it descends into laughable "B feature" silliness with tree creepers crawling around looking for someone to suck the life essence out of -- ho,hum, yes we've seen that one before too.

One of the perks of working in a video store is the ability to preview dvd's before they hit the shelve's. This title stuck out in particular due to the name Lucky mckee director of cult fave May.

Let me say first, this film is AWSOME, sony have released some interesting films straight to dvd in 2006 (the plague, population 436, DEath tunnel) but this film is by far and away the best, great acting, location, atmosphere, sound design and Bruce Campbell with his finest performance since Bubba ho-tep. Though it seems to have been influenced by films like suspiria and evil dead it is in no way imitative of either and I am willing to stake a large wad of cash that this becomes a true cult classic, though it deserves to be more popular than that!

Can't believe how much praise this one is getting - it's a real turkey. Formulaic high school horror with all the usual suspects turning up - good girl, bad girl, quiet girl, strange girl, weird staff etc,etc with nothing original and an unconvincing back story something about witches in a wood. There's much effort to create an eerie atmosphere that never quite arrives and attempted scares are either telegraphed or of the messy variety. If this film had turned up 60 years ago it may have been more interesting but now it's all been seen before and better.

I thought it started intriguingly enough; I liked the cinematography, the 60s fashions and music. Watchable enough -- but the plot is incredibly silly. The ending is quite ridiculous.

Spooky Woods Horrors are ten a penny but this delivers, in the main by good, competent acting, excellent mad old teachers and a private school building overrun by the titular woods. Blair Witch has become the go-to definitive lost in the woods account, but this has heart: A lonely schoolgirl, a mysterious past and all shot with great gusto by Lucky McGee who was, I believe, thrown off the picture. Well, it doesn't suffer without him. I watch hundreds of cheap horrors (yes, I know) and it's rare to be truly scared or indeed scared for the protagonist.
Heather Fasulo (Agnes Bruckner) is no tepid final girl but a realistic depiction of a poor girl lost and abandoned by cruel parents to an even crueller school. It plays out its thrills slowly - vital in Supernatural horror and even the overt CGI doesn't spoil things when there are enough strong images (leaves in the bed) to horrify. Best watched on a cold and windy leafy dark winter's afternoon.

Format: DVD
There's just something about horror and boarding schools for girls. With the exception of Eastland (that's a Facts of Life reference), I can't think of any school for girls that isn't terrorized by a murderer or haunted by ghosts or witches. This boarding school is no exception, as there are all kinds of weird things going on behind its doors - not to mention out in the surrounding woods. Set in 1965, The Woods has a nice, distinctive feel to it, and the creepy potential the film shows early on lasts all the way to the somewhat ridiculous climactic scenes near the end. The only real weakness here is the story, as the atmosphere remains dark and creepy throughout, and an excellent cast rises to every occasion, no matter how many horror movie clichés dot the landscape.

Heather Fasulo (Agnes Bruckner) finds herself at this secluded school largely because she is an embarrassment to her uncaring mother. Yes, there was the small matter of a little arson, but it doesn't take a Freud to figure out that Heather was acting out for the kind of attention her mother refused to give her. Heather isn't exactly happy in her new situation. She befriends a demure girl by the name of Marcy (Lauren Birkell), but she is immediately targeted for abuse by Samantha (Rachel Nichols), the leader of the cool girl school clique, who gives her the much-used moniker of Fire-Crotch. Heather also has a bad habit of getting into trouble, which does not endear her to her teachers. Still, Miss Traverse (Patricia Clarkson), the headmistress, shows a special interest in her, even giving her a scholarship based on Heather's performance on a strange, IQ-like test. Being special isn't necessarily a good thing at this school, though; special girls have an odd habit of disappearing.

Format: DVD
The woods is directed by Lucky McKee and written by David Ross. It stars Agnes Bruckner, Patricia Clarkson, Lauren Birkell, Rachel Nichols, Bruce Campbell and Kathleen Mackey. Music is by John Frizzell and Jaye Barnes Luckett and cinematography by John R. Leonetti. When Heather Fasulo (Bruckner) causes a fire at her parents home, they have her sent to the secluded Falburn Academy. A place of strange people and strange secrets.

It sat on the shelf for a couple of years and finally got released to home formats in 2006. Eagerly anticipated by fans of Lucky McKee, who had given horror fans the well regarded "May" in 2002, it's a solid genre offering with some nice visual flourishes. Yet it's too clichéd for its own good, a collage of other genre movies that the director clearly adores. There's too many questions hanging in the air, left unanswered, why is Heather the key to the finale? What purpose does her "powers" serve the plot? How do parents know about this school and how come nobody is making enquiries about obvious missing children over the years? One cop? Really? It's 1965 but you wouldn't know it from the dialogue. And on it goes, a ream of holes keep opening up in the screenplay and the director frantically tries to cover them up with some nifty slow-mo work, or a bloody image. While the CGI in the grand finale is more comedy than horror and kills the suspense that the makers were clearly trying for.

There's good performances from the cast, across the board, and it does look real impressive on a visual level, but the writing and all round familiar feeling renders it very ordinary indeed. 5/10
