Movie Info

Don't Go in the Woods is sound advice, especially when there's a killer on the loose. First-time director Vincent D'Onofrio explores love, greed and ruthlessness in this twisted musical/horror hybrid, telling the story of a young band who heads to the woods to get away from their everyday lives in order to focus on writing new songs. Hoping to walk away from the trip with new tunes that will score them their big break, they instead find themselves in the middle of a nightmare beyond comprehension. -- (C) Tribeca

Critic Reviews for Don't Go in the Woods

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (7)

  • An undercooked, "Glee"-like hybrid of grating indie pop songs and forest slasher flick.

    February 9, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • "Don't Go in the Woods" would be ideal for a 3 a.m. slot on MTV. A couple of decades ago.

    January 12, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Offers one good twist on the killer-vs.-campers concept, but otherwise is about as basic as it gets.

  • Dwarfed by the baroque camp of Brian De Palma's horror musical Phantom of the Paradise, Don't Go in the Woods is cozily resigned to its novelty niche but an affront to fans of the genres it bowdlerizes.

    January 10, 2012 | Full Review…
  • It's a sloppy and rushed affair, built around shrug-worthy visuals, a recycled and clichd plot, and forgettable performances.

    March 9, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Tethers together numerous indie-rock musical numbers with a backwoods-horror-film framework that's the definition of an afterthought.
