A very good horror film with great performances, a tight story, and atmosphere that will keep audiences salivating.

"The Woods" plays like a classic Lewton film of the '40's, where the emphasis was on telling a good yarn without much ado and wrapping it up in a tightly wound 70 minutes.

One of the most polished and inventive horror flicks of the still-ongoing year, a synthesis of classical supernatural and sexualized imagery that expands upon, rather than simply regurgitates, its celebrated predecessors.

Lucky McKee's latest is not as singular as May, but it's still a solid flick.

There's a lot to like about The Woods, but it never really takes root.

Those expecting a shock-a-minute gore-fest will most likely walk away scratching their head, but as a semi-homage to Dario Argento's Suspiria, The Woods is a creepy little winner.

Derrière The Woods se cache sans l'ombre d'un doute un film d'horreur qui aurait pu facilement devenir un classique du genre.

Never justifies the witches' tale it was spinning.

Not a groundbreaking or innovative horror film, but contains many elements that make horror movies appealing: screaming schoolgirls, spooky forces of nature, stylish camerawork, a good sense of humor throughout ... and the presence of Bruce Campbell.

The actors obviously don't understand the material any more than we do, nor do they seem to care.
