Plot – Spoilers:
Set in mid ’60s America, Heather is a teen with anarchist tendencies, at least according to her parents. They all lead distant lives and when Heather burns down a tree in their yard, her mother decides the best way to tame her is to send her to an all-girls boarding school situated in the middle of the woods. The headmistress’s willingness to accept her on a scholarship doesn’t trigger her parents too much, though the Dad (Bruce Campbell) seems a little uncertain.

From early on in her stay, Heather is targeted by bullies and the headmistress, but fights back while seeking solace in the friendship of a wide-eyed girl who stares at her a lot. Strange things begin to occur with stories of missing girls and witches adding to the eeriness.

Favorite Scenes:
Not too many, but Agnes Bruckner is kind of pretty and keeps you interested. Mostly, Bruce Campbell’s scenes are quite enjoyable with his trademark quirks.

Is this in sepia or is it just me? Adds to the atmosphere if it’s intentional

Bruce just needs to stay away from the woods. Be it camping or bording school, he’s just got the worst luck in forests.

Hi Admin, I am sorry but this movie calls “The Woods” according to IMDB.
