The most inept filmmaking I've seen in years

The very idea of transposing a story so obviously set in a machismo banana republic to America is idiocy on a level all its own.

But apart from that, I'm having trouble deciding which was more painful here: The amateurish writing, the cheap iPhone look of the digital photography, the incompetent editing, the dead-voiced rendition of Amazing Grace over the end credits, or the knowledge that Michael Biehn has fallen so far as to produce and headline in dreck like this.

The fact that I managed to sit through this mess should be testament to my tolerance level, as should the fact that I've given the film two stars rather than one, just because it has William Forsythe in it. Even he can't do anything with the ridiculous clich├ęs he's given to work with, though.

I'm sure someone will tell me that I should watch the original to see a better version. But I'm not going to. If the second time around is this bad with the same director at the helm, how good can the first one be?

No one steals from me

This review is for the US remake of the Chilean film.

Dad (Michael Biehn) deals drugs, mom is dead. Dad sire son from oldest daughter Ana (Jeannine Kaspar) who they keep locked up, but seems normal. Anny (Electra Avellan) is the younger daughter and excuse me if I have them confused. Dad winds up in prison and the girls hide out in a shack, used by their dad. They actually don't make it to any woods until there is 16 minutes left in the film and it doesn't last long. Uncle Costello (William Forsythe) sends his goons to find the girls and the drugs.

This felt like an abduction film. They didn't build the girl's character enough to make you feel for them, as if Director Patricio Valladares was simply using them like the Johns in the film. Some good performances, but the plot seemed weak.

Guide: F-word, rape, sex, brief nudity? Note to self: If you are sitting on 30 kilos, don't teach your kids 911.

Really entertaining movie for all horror fans !

With all the top Hollywood Blockbusters being released all the time, i feel there are a lot of really good movies not being recognised for the decent little films that they are.

Hidden In The Woods may not be one of your usual top Hollywood Blockbuster but is still worth the look never-the-less. Not looking at reviews like other people would, i liked the sound of this movie. I put it on and was revealed an incestuous abuse scene which felt quite disturbing. I watched on and before i knew it the end credits were rolling. This movie doesn't have heaps of special effects (who said you have to, to be a decent movie), but this movie had me chewing my finger nails off and on the edge of my seat right to the very end. With not many slow scenes, this movie did not disappoint at all with the violence and great little story line. Michael Biehn in my opinion pulled off what i would like to class as an Oscar winning performance as ever! (Well done). The two female actresses are easy on the eye as well.

I'm not saying you will want to watch this movie over and over and there will be people that enjoy it and some that won't. All i'm saying is give this movie a chance, it may not disappoint you like it didn't disappoint me.

Great movie all round !
