Movie Info

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 ...

A few mildly effective scares, but all so derivative.

Its very Blair Witch-lite, serving up a thin smattering of urban legend with only a few scares towards the end.

Not a night to remember though.

Competent but not exactly original.

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.

There's plenty of atmosphere, but both the leads and the location deserve better.

Audience Reviews for A Night in the Woods

Yet another 'found footage' faux documentary, this one is so similar to The Blair Witch Project it's practically a remake. A boyfriend and girlfriend decide to go on a camping trip in Dartmoor along with a cousin with an apparent complicated 'history'. The woods they are staying in are purportedly full of ghosts/spirits/whatever (there's some 'vox pops' of people in a pub giving their versions, just like the local in BWP talk about the witch), and you betcha, there's some strange noises in them there woods. The spin with A Night In The Woods is that it appears at least one of the party are already a bit loopy and there's some interest in trying to determine if the strangeness that's happening is to do with things in the woods, things 'possessing' one or more of the three, or whether it's entirely down to human interference, or a combination. The film is well acted and has a couple of decent scares, but there's absolutely nothing new here and the 'found footage' sub-genre really is running out of new tricks. To top it off, the denouement is practically a re-hash of The Blair Witch Project (there's some beats similar to the 'figure standing in a corner looking at the wall' familiar from the closing moments) but doesn't have anything like that superior film's power. Not much worth bothering with then, sadly. I do like Scott McNairy though - he deserves better films.
