Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: "Don't Go in the Woods" would be ideal for a 3 a.m. slot on MTV. A couple of decades ago. – David DeWitt, New York Times, Jan 12, 2012

Rotten: An undercooked, "Glee"-like hybrid of grating indie pop songs and forest slasher flick. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Feb 9, 2012

Rotten: 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. – Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, Jan 10, 2012

Rotten: Tethers together numerous indie-rock musical numbers with a backwoods-horror-film framework that's the definition of an afterthought. – Nick Schager, Slant Magazine, Jan 13, 2012

Don't Watch This Movie

No stars. Nothing. Tried to be clever and failed. Horribly.

Not worth it!

Well, I guess that band isn't making a hit anytime soon! Anyone who watched the trailer can tell it's an awful movie. Don't waste your time.

A bucket list project

I didn't mind the show as I expected it to be odd (listed under musical, horror, comedy and independent). Though the movie was certainly not for the Chainsaw Massacre audience, it reminded me of a realistic camp out with a boy gone mad and brought me back to ghost stories around the campfire...with all the plots that you would expect teens to expose... Except the signing, but I liked how each character of the group sang a different version of the songs the band played. I bet this sat on the back burner of D'Onofrio's wish list to try for awhile, and he finally got around to trying a film from the role of writer / director.
