DVD Review: ‘LOST WOODS’

We all love the mythology of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, the Yeti and any other names the big hairy dude goes by and I honestly can’t get enough movies about the creature. The latest movie  is LOST WOODS that follows a group of friends to the woods only to come across this monster.

Ok, we follow this group of friends (four guys and one girl) who take a trip to the woods for some fun. There’s a sub plot going on about a boy that has gone missing so keep that in mind. Things begin to happen immediately when they arrive including meeting up with a few local hunters who look like they’re up to no good. As the movie unfolds the group finds out that they are being hunted down and it’s not by the shady locals but a muscle bound hairy beast, thirsty for blood. Lives are lost, secrets are revealed and broken friendships are mended.

Lost Woods is directed by Phillip Ellering and Nathan Ellering who do a great job. the camera work and sound is crisp and clear and always a plus when it comes to indie filmmaking. The location was great and a perfect place to make a movie like this.  Our leads, Joey Brown, Garret Vander Leun, Nina Brissey, Phillip Ellering and even co-director Nathan Ellering all did an outstanding job acting. There’s just enough humor in the acting and the rest of it gets pretty dark and serious.   Now getting to the man in the monkey suit, this is where many low budget movies go wrong and with Lost Worlds, I must say it’s a pretty cool look Mr. Hairy has. This guy is bulky, muscle bound (maybe a little too much) and the eyes are really cool plus when the camera gets up close he gives us some menacing facial expressions which I really liked! The only thing about this character is I wish he would have been a lot taller and it would have a made a world of difference. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still cool watching this monster in the woods do his thing.

Bottom line is Lost Woods is the best of these “Bigfoot”movies I’ve seen in a while.   Definitely give it a shot if you like these  types of movies! The DVD releases on June 5th and you can pre-order it HERE.
