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 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 ...

With skillful improv from the cast and some genuine frights, this is a worthy retread.

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.

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.

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 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.
