Reviews [click links to read more]:

“All the same dull cliches, lackluster direction, glaring plot holes, and general trashiness of dud movies don’t suddenly become worthwhile to me because of who made it–a subpar film is a subpar film and, sorry to say, this is quite subpar.” Horror Buzz

“Next time, give me more Danny Trejo. Just kidding. Sort of. Murder in the Woods is slightly generic in terms of setting, suspense and story, but it’s a well crafted and beautifully acted slasher flick. It’s only fault is that it brings nothing new to the table.” Horror Society

” …writer Yelyna De Leon throws in enough twists and red herrings to help you doubt who – or what – the killer is. You must pay attention from the beginning of the film to see how all the pieces fit together. And it is an “Oh, my God!” moment when your personal light bulb goes off.” MatchFlick

” …it really picks up steam the longer it goes and the longer it refuses to reveal the identity of the killer – which creates tension all by itself and really sucks one into the story of the film. And ultimately, the film delivers on its promise in heaps, culminating in a very tight finale with all the suspense and shocks in their right places and plenty of gore as well.” Search My Trash
