2.0 out of 5 stars The Blair Witch as a marriage counsellor....(spoilers), 1 Feb. 2014
This review is from: A Night in the Woods [DVD] (DVD)
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.
