A low-budget film crew treks deep into the wilderness to shoot horror sequences for their unsellable indie-drama. They soon find themselves in the midst of their own horror show as they are hunted down real monsters.

As the film opens Low budget filmmaker, Jayson what he believes is a winning film but Hollywood has other ideas. The powers that be want him to go back and do some re-shoots adding more blood and nudity. Jayson tells his Producer Bravo to get a cast and crew together and talk them into re-shooting for free with the promise of reaping some of the profits once the film is sold. But with an incompetent cast and crew something was bound to go wrong and it does when Jayson is accidentally killed on set. Bravo some how convinces everyone to finish the film but what no one else knows is that he made a pact with the devil and now there are blood thirsty hellhounds on the loose looking to take 12 lives and maybe more. It's now up to stuntman Burt and a female Angel to stop Bravo and put an end to all the killing before it's too late.

"Monsters in The Woods" starts off a bit slow as it introduces the characters and sets up the story but it doesn't take long for the film to shift gears and become a full-fledged creature feature. The film has a good amount of blood and gore and the effects are really well done, the creatures are also very original, their not your typical hellhounds you might be use to seeing. The film also has a good bit of nudity, foul language and dark humor to keep the things light and fun. Writer/Director, Jason Horton really has a pulse on the genre and he even knows how to poke a little fun at the industry as well.

Director Horton also put together a terrific cast including Glenn Plummer, everyone in the film did a fantastic job playing their roles and they all looked like they had a blast making the film as well. The film is well-shot, everything looks good and Horton really made the most of the isolated settings which really gave the feeling on nowhere to run or hide. "Monsters in The Woods" is just another example of why Independent horror reigns over anything Hollywood produces nowadays. This was a bloody good time and a film that gets the juices flowing, if you're a fan of horror you owe it to yourself to check this one out. I will be keeping an eye out to see what this talented Director has coming next.
