    Released on DVD last September. I'm thinking about picking it up soon since I enjoyed the first one. Anyone seen this yet?

    I have the disc. Full screen, decent quality, shot on video. I found the movie to be very generic and boring. I really appreciate low budget filmmaking, and Within The Woods tries hard, but just didn't do it for me. The only reason I bought it was I saw it listed online with no details and thought it might have been the infamous Sam Raimi short. NOPE!

    It's missing the crappy but fun charm of the first one. Within The Woods looks nice, and from all the Brad Sykes movies I've seen this one might be his best (zero budget) production to date but yow, it still falls flat. It's basically a re-telling of the first one with a few similar characters thrown in and a "new" plot-twist: for a Reality Show five people must spend 24 hours at the infamous Camp Blood. The last one remaining will get 1 Million Dollars.

    "I hear on a clear day you can see a few decomposing bodies"

    One of those stiff decomposing bodies really stood out though: Stephanie Mathis as Jessica. Cute girl, bad actress. Her limited acting abilities will make ya howl near the end when she's getting all emotional and crying. Plus she's a lousy screamer AND runner [​IMG] Not even funny in a bad way. More stuff to look out for -

    7 dead bodies
    4 boobs
    1 nightmare
    eye-gouging
    throat-slashing
    stomach-stabbing
    exercising/lifting weights with rocks
    machete-fu
    shovel-fu (literally)
    surveillance-camera-fu
    foreplay
    silhouette-fondeling
    electrocution
    1 chopped off hand
    multiple use of kitsch techno/dance song "Whatever It Takes"

    Not the worst, far from being good. Rent/watch/buy at own risk.
