Horrorfest 2018 Presents: Don’t Go In The Woods (1981, James Bryan)


I never thought I would view a slasher film that is so trashy and bad it makes the Friday the 13th series appear to be cinematic art by comparison. Yet here we are with Don’t Go In The Woods, a really dumb and mostly poorly made excuse for a gore fest that never quite works. Instead James Bryan sets out to show as many horrific killings as possible by some crazed backwoods hillbilly, thus sacrificing everything else. I mean the Friday the 13th series at least had likable people to root for. This film has none of that.

Nope skip this lame flick and watch The Final Terror instead. Or go enjoy a slasher film such as Friday the 13th which is at least fun. Forget not going in the woods, how about not watching this movie? Yet I still viewed it anyways, because it was controversial and I am a sucker for 1980s slasher films. Oh well.
