Backwoods - Movie Review

BackwoodsAnd on the Twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . . a slasher for the #MeToo era! Backwoods begins by traveling along a winding and lonely dirt road.  This eerie opening scene is reminiscent of a David Lynch creation: just the road and the ambiance of the moment.  It fills our visual and auditory senses ...

Opening with a tracking shot of a concentration camp where dogs rip out the throats of the captives therein, Werewolf is bound to stir up some strong ...
