Fresh, atmospheric, suspenseful addition to the horror genre
I first saw Beyond The Woods at the superb Unrestricted View Horror Film festival in London where it won best international picture. I loved every bit of this film. I was wary of what standard to expect as you get a mix at certain film festivals. I needn't have worried. I was pleasantly surprised to see a superbly put together feature. The acting is superbly subtle/natural particularly from the 2 lead roles Ger and Lucy. Having said that the rest of the actors were also really great. I loved the setting the location is a star of the movie, isolated house in a massive forest - creepy as hell! The edit is very fast which adds to the suspenseful feel of the movie and the character development for a horror movie is second to none. I've recommended it to all my horror buddies it's my favourite horror of the year can't wait for the DVD release. 10 our of 10 for me! Can't wait to see what director Sean Breathnach does next.
