Coarse, brutal and entertaining.
- Hidden in the Woods review by NP
Imagine if family favourite ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ had been produced by Freddie Krueger, this is the kind of thing you might have ended up with. Raucous, coarse, loaded with every variation of every expletive you have ever heard; brutal, violent and completely ridiculous, ‘Hidden in the Woods’ is, if you’re in the right mood, highly entertaining.
There’s nothing like a father’s love, is there? “Nobody messes with my babies,” says Oscar Crooker (Michael Biehn) at one point. To list the depravities this man has subjected his ‘babies’ to would be to venture into spoilers. He’s a phenomenally diabolical character – and he’s in good company.
The atrocities heaped on various characters are relentless and appalling, but there’s a dank humour in there also, and despite being shocking, the films is a highly entertaining way of spending just over 90 minutes. 7 out of 10.
