Audience Reviews for Villmark (Dark Woods)
Log cabin, scary woods, humans going back to nature. Classic ingredients for a horror, which could either be painfully repetitive or well executed. It's certainly the latter. Shot like an autumn nightmare, the film is creepy even in the sunlight. It makes use of all the fading greens, browns and grays. It also does well in not overplaying the reality TV angle, in fact it's rarely mentioned. The characters are also mature young people, not maddeningly annoying teenagers. They develop throughout the movie and at no point does anybody do anything idiotically befuddling. No wonder there's a low body count with intelligent pray taking the focus. The ending does leave too many questions, despite giving a lot of answers in the last 2 minutes. A great horror watch.
The only reason why I watched this, was because I've been in the woods and by the pond featured in the movie. It's gorgeous IRL, in daylight. Hence, my difficulty to see the horror in it. I was only thinking of the beauty of the place. There's a spectacular view, of the surrounding mountains and fjords, a short walk from the pond. As for the quality of the movie and the acting, I wasn't that impressed. I wasn't expecting much, however, since it's a Norwegian movie and all...
Very weird film.. Leaves me with a whole bunch of unanswered questions... though It was pretty interesting to watch. Confusing at times.. Though it just leaves me going 'WTF just went on there?' But hey, it's good for some paranoia if you're heading to a forest for camping. Heheh.
