Film Focus - The Woods (2006)


Set in 1965 New England, a troubled girl encounters mysterious happenings in the woods surrounding an isolated girls school that she was sent to by her estranged parents.

Heather (Agnes Bruckner) struggles to fit into this seemingly traditional school filled with a trade mark bully, strict teachers but what really stands out as different is story of myth about the school, is it just a myth though?

Newguy87's Verdict

When it comes to horror films one key thing to get is a well known horror icon. This one has Bruce Campbell and along side well respected actress Patricia Clarkson.

This comes over as a very good simple cult like horror film filled mostly of dream sequences and an overall very creepy performance from Clarkson as head mistress. In the end it is well worth a watch without really reaching a top scare level.

Best Part: Dream Sequences

Best Performance: Patricia Clarkson

My Rating 74%
