Steve’s marriage is just about over. To escape, he and three of his closest friends head to the mountains to relax for the weekend. However, things are only beginning to go wrong, as a killer is on the loose and what was once a getaway has turned into a battle to survive.
Soon, our protagonists SUV has been vandalized and strange inhuman footprints are found all around their cabin. Add in some definitely monstrous screams and it seems everyone is in trouble. They are, that is, until they shoot the monster.
All good? Nope. It turns out that the beast they got was just the kid version…
I liked Michael Draper’s nerdy character the best here, wearing a ridiculous sweater and throwing up nearly any time he’s in danger. And oh boy, these guys are in danger for most of the film.
This is a fine monster/rural horror low budget movie. It’s quick, has some surprises and scares.
Between the Trees is available on Demand and digital HD March 5 and on DVD June 11.
NOTE: We were sent this movie by its production team but that doesn’t impact our review.
