Thoughts on Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight
Thoughts – Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight is a slasher horror, sold as Poland’s first slasher, as a group of teenagers sent to be cut off from technology find themselves needing to fight for their lives, when a creature in the woods comes hunting for them. When it comes to the slasher genre, we know what we are going to get with the number of teens that are the targets of the enemy, this gives us the typical victims for the killer, which is a hybrid of the cannibals in Wrong Turn and the relentless Jason Voorhees. The look of the villain is great, being disturbing and terrifying if you were to meet them in the woods one day. When the type of movie doesn’t happen as much as it used, this is one film that doesn’t hold back letting loose and will use the effects very well in the movie. The performances are great too with Julia Wieniawa-Narkiewicz being a great horror lead in the film.
Final Thoughts – Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight is a great slasher, paying great respect to the genre.
