It's a sloppy and rushed affair, built around shrug-worthy visuals, a recycled and clichéd plot, and forgettable performances.

An undercooked, "Glee"-like hybrid of grating indie pop songs and forest slasher flick.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

Tethers together numerous indie-rock musical numbers with a backwoods-horror-film framework that's the definition of an afterthought.

"Don't Go in the Woods" would be ideal for a 3 a.m. slot on MTV. A couple of decades ago.

Outside of the proxy satisfaction it will give those who are dying to see the grim reaper let loose on the set of a very special episode of Glee, the pleasures of Don't Go in the Woods can't quite compensate for its straggly bits.

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.
