About this movie

Seven friends arrange a reunion at a secluded holiday home in Ireland. Unfortunately for them, a fiery sink-hole has opened up in the mountains nearby, spewing out sulphur and causing a nauseating smell outside. They might be confined to the house, but the friends are still determined to have a good time. As the weekend progresses, some of the group start behaving out of character. Before long they realise it's not just a sink-hole that has opened near their home, but something far more horrific – a portal that unleashes a sinister supernatural presence.

I was quite surprised with this film. A very misleading poster alluding to a slasher of sorts. If it's a gory slasher you want this isn't what you're looking for. Very light on gore and on screen kills Beyond The Woods does character better than most horror films. A very naturalistic ensemble really sells the story of a group of friends who haven't been in touch as of late. The acting is really outstanding and the small number of special effects are solid too. My only niggle would be I would have loved more horror early on particularly out in the woods during daytime. Best scene in the movie is a guy getting lost in the woods early on which was gripping it really built suspense to breaking point for me. Would have loved to have seen the holy well at some stage too. More horror and I would rate higher but a great film nonetheless. Atmosphere and tension in spades.

Slow burner character orientated supernatural horror. High standard of acting, great special effects. Not as much gore or horror as I would have liked but the actors and character work really brought me into the movie and I really loved it. Brilliant atmosphere in the film and an amazing horror location in Ireland. Reminded me of some of the oldies in a good way. Not a slasher!

If you like horrors you'll enjoy it once you accept it's a slow burner and more on character but really delivers on the horror in the last half an hour loved the atmosphere from early on though I will say it has great atmosphere and good tension that sustains right up to the end. Also beautiful location!
