THE WOODS

The Woods Movie Review

Heather (Agnes Bruckner, Kill Theory, Vacancy 2) is a troubled teenager sent away to a boarding school. Once there, she is picked on by the school bully, Samantha (Rachel Nichols, Star Trek, G.I. Joe), is harassed by the teachers, and finds that the woods surrounding the school are haunted. This movie has a story line that really isn’t that interesting and it tends to drag at times; however, there is a lot going for it too, the first thing being the acting. Bruckner and Nichols are both very good in their roles. Patricia Clarkson (Carrie) is good as Ms. Traverse, the lady in charge of the school, and Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead series),as Heather’s father, is as awesome as always .

The directing is interesting as you get not only unusual scenes but also unusual angles. There’s even a fine little twist involved in the story that makes the second watching of the film better than the first. This is not a great movie, but it is pretty enjoyable, and I recommend it.
