TRIBECA FILMS (2010)
Starring: Bo Boddie, Eric Bogosian, Gwynn Galitzer, Jorgen Jorgensen, Tim Lajcik & more.
DON'T GO IN THE WOODS is a failed attempt to make a Horror / Musical type film. I was really
hoping this was going to be good, because actor Vincent D'Onofrio directed it. The film follows a
Christian Rock band (already a bad decision) who want to get away and concentrate on their music.
They decide to head to the woods for the weekend and focus totally on their music. Well, some of the
band members bring along some friends and girls for some extra added fun. When the lead singer gets
pissed because no one wants to focus on the band, but instead just want to party and have fun. Some
of the friends head off on their own and then they eventually get killed off (thankfully). As the film
moves along they start playing and singing more and more songs. Then more and more of the friends
get picked off, which you can't wait to see, because it means the movie will be over soon. The music
is so horribly bad, that it's the scariest part of the film. The killer in the woods concept has been
played to death and this was one of the worst portrayals of it. If you think of the horrible show
GLEE with a Horror movie setting then you would get this film. I like Vincent D'Onofrio as an actor,
but if this is the type of films he's going to direct, I hope he sticks to acting.
