Missing in Greenwood is a 2018 Irish found-footage horror feature film about a father searching for his son in an isolated forest.
Written and directed by Stephen Patrick Kenny (24 Hours to Die; The Pigman Murders), the Hook Up Films production stars James Fahey, Bernie Coen, Michael Corcoran and Tony Denham.
A worried father (Tony Denham) goes to the isolated forest of Greenwood in hope of finding his son Pat Cullen (Mark Hutchinson) who has been missing for over two years. As he makes his way to the last destination he encounters dark twists and turns as he must now try to survive the forest himself.
“Torpedoed by self-conscious performances, this showcases a regrettably obnoxious array of characters and descends into repetitive, tedious scenes of torch-lit panic. When attempts to create atmosphere fail, it resorts to cheap nudge-nudge humour…” Horrorscreams Videovault
“Very little of it holds together or feels cohesive, it’s like a collection of improvised scenes randomly strung together. Which might not have been so bad if they were at least interesting. Unfortunately, in the worst tradition of found footage, ninety per cent of the film consists of people stumbling around the woods in the dark.” Voices from the Balcony
