Deep In The Woods


(out of 5)

Original title:  Promenons-Nous Dans Les Bois

Five attractive young actors are hired to do their modernized update of Little Red Riding Hood at the isolated country mansion of a weird, creepy millionaire and his weird, creepy kid.  The same night that they do their show, a man in a wolf costume starts working his way through the house murdering everyone in sight. The French haven’t come up with a particularly interesting twist on an overtired American genre in this run-of-the-mill ensemble slasher; the eventual revelation of the culprit is not in any way a surprise for anyone with an IQ of 2 or more, and the characters are too shallow to be sympathetic. Features the sad coincidence of ‘s murder scene filmed not long before she was murdered in real life by her boyfriend.
