Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight II (2021)

Imagine my joy that as soon as I finished watching Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight that I learned that the sequel was coming.

My happiness was increased when this movie completely flipped the script, taking this film well and far away from its 80s slasher origins and into a brave, funny and new place.

I’m very adverse to giving you the spoiler to this, but when the description of the film states “when something horrible happens to the only survivor of a bloody massacre, an insecure rookie cop must overcome his fears to stop further carnage” you kind of have to imagine that something major happens. I thought it’d be a homage to the final girl switch off that would happen in the slasher franchises but I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Just when you think you have this one figured out, it goes off in the kind of bold new direction that will give anyone who was mindblower by Malignant absolute whiplash.

But hey, what do I know. People seem put off by the absurd twist just as much as I like it. And that’s why movies are awesome. We should be united in our disparate opinions, happy that we are able to feel and find different things in movies. Me, I like when films about alien mutant slasher killers have kind of a heart.

I’m here for as many of these as they make.

You can watch this on Netflix.
