If you haven’t had the chance to see Girl in Woods, keep your eyes open when it finds its way to Redbox and Blu-ray. It’s not atypically inventive (but it’s entertaining) picture, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s enjoyable, and it’s a flick worth seeing, even if it does indeed sport a number of flaws.
I don’t intend to get too deep into details. If you want a walkthrough of the film, check out Klug’s well-expressed review right here. My opinion doesn’t mirror his own, but that’s fine and dandy. Different strokes for difference folks, and respect to Mike for illuminating his own personal issues with the production.
All that said, if you read Michael’s article (and you find yourself either more curious about, or less likely to pursue the flick), you have at least a basic idea of what Girl in Woods is about.
It’s essentially a she-against-the-world, survivor tale. And I can get into that kind of a film, especially if it’s relatively well-shot and features a couple of convincing performances. For the record, Girl in Woods, can lay claim to those qualities – in my opinion. And even if I didn’t love the movie (I didn’t), I can tell you I’d much rather pay the rental fee for a movie like Girl in Woods than, say, Cell – Stephen King’s latest adaptation, that proved to be an unbelievable letdown.
You can read the full interview with London right here, but before you jump all the way in, get yourself primed with some of Jeremy’s opinion on his wife and a few of the anticipated hiccups in the road.
I’m so proud of my wife and her hard work that she put into it. When I first met her, she’d already shot most of her stuff for this movie, and she showed me the film, and without being mean, it just needed a lot of work, but not on her end – everything she did was amazing, and it was tragic because, again, I thought that no one would see it. Luckily, Jeremy Vincent and Mark Williams were so receptive and open to suggestions and honesty to rescue this thing. They went back and put the work into this thing and made it a really cool movie – I’m really proud of it and my wife as well.
