High school cheerleader Molly woke bound and gagged in the trunk of her boyfriend's car. That was the high point of her night. After escaping and fleeing into the nearby forest, she comes face-to-face with the town urban legend: The Hangman, a deformed zealot said to lynch male trespassers and keep the women as "brides". Now, Molly, along with her best friend and would-be rescuer Noah must work together to avoid becoming his latest victims.

"With its wonderful storytelling, directing, and performances, Backwoods gives us another reason not to play around in the woods for it is dark, deep, and full of the unknown." Dread Central

"And there you have it really; if I’m already thinkin’ of a sequel then I guess I liked Backwoods well enough… and for you slasher fanatics out there I’d wager you will too!" Horror Fuel

"The visuals are beautifully shot by Kris Skoda, who also fills a bunch of other crew shoes. It is well written by husband and wife team of Smith and Erin Lilly (the latter of whom has a decent cameo role as “The Feral Woman,” aka Karen, though I don’t think she’ll be calling the cops on strangers), with lots of twists and unexpected turns, and as I said, which does well to build some character development that is so rare in these kinds of slaughter films." Indie Horror Films
