Night in the Woods, A (18)

Night in the Woods, A (18)


Brody, his girlfriend Kerry and their friend Leo go hiking in Dartmoor's Wistman's Woods, so named because of its legendary haunted past. Read more …

That night jealousies, sexual tensions and strained relationships come to a head turning what should have been a peaceful camping adventure into a trip to terror.

Competent but not exactly original.

The found footage format doesn't help and neither does the growing sense that none of the characters are really that likeable. The inevitable ending offers nothing new on the Blair Witch template either which feels like scant reward for the effort required in reaching it.

Its very Blair Witch-lite, serving up a thin smattering of urban legend with only a few scares towards the end.

Parry gets some spiky tension going between the three campers, and the leads do a creditable job of looking scared. But the feeling we've done this trip before is unignorable.

This good-looking, creditably tangled Brit entry benefits from a better-than-average jolt-count and rigorous, dirty-fingernails acting.

The build-up (visiting Stonehenge and driving past Dartmoor prison) is quite intriguing, much more so than the things going bump in the night.
