Don't Go in the Woods

Don’t go near the directorial debut of Vincent D’Onofrio.


Horror

Rod Lott
New to DVD, 2010’s Don't Go in the Woods is not to be confused with 1981’s Don't Go in the Woods. That one was a cheap slasher movie; this one is a cheap slasher movie in which characters wonder what John Fogerty and the Donner party have in common, and then sing songs.

Joshua Boydston
