All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Hidden In the Woods (2012)

Starring: Siboney Lo, Carolina Escobar,
Director: Patriciio Valladares



Premise:
Two sisters and their brother are raised in rural Chile by their psychotic, drug dealing, abusive, rapist father. The siblings finally stand up to their father and run away to make it on their own. He goes ballistic and eventually gets arrested. The local drug kingpin denies the man help to get out until he reveals where the drugs are stashed and instead goes off to find the kids, thinking they know about the drugs.

My Take:
The film is gritty and really defies a lot of logic, in fact the story goes all over the place from child abuse and rape to a deformed sibling to prostitution to cannibalism to crazy drug dealer shoot outs, but despite the flaws it is hard not to get sucked into this crazy ass world. The characters play it all with the upmost believability. The movie is not for everyone but I found it interesting.

Rating: In the middle
