When three friends go hiking, jealousies, sexual tensions and strained relationships come to a head, turning what should have been a peaceful camping adventure into a terror trip. As collective paranoia reaches fever pitch it becomes clear that there is a much darker force at work in their ancient eerie surroundings. Who or what is after them? And can any one of them survive a night in the woods? (c) Tribeca

No amount of shaky-cam footage or imaginative sound design can lend coherence to these improvised scenes, which were shot on location before being patched together in the editing room.
The build-up (visiting Stonehenge and driving past Dartmoor prison) is quite intriguing, much more so than the things going bump in the night.
The improvised performances of the cast, the beautiful yet isolated location and dynamic camerawork keep things watchable.
It's testament to the non-scariness of A Night in the Woods that it makes you want to go out and buy a tent.
It's unusual in using its 80-odd minutes to burrow down into these characters and match their psychic states with the (still underfilmed) location's physical terrain ...
Its very Blair Witch-lite, serving up a thin smattering of urban legend with only a few scares towards the end.
With skillful improv from the cast and some genuine frights, this is a worthy retread.
The inevitable ending offers nothing new on the Blair Witch template either which feels like scant reward for the effort required in reaching it.
