      Dax Ebaben Bloody Disgusting The random comedy shoe-horned in at the end ... feels like a desperate and truly baffling attempt to trick viewers into thinking they had a good time. Rated: 1/5 Aug 31, 2021 Full Review Terry Mesnard Gayly Dreadful I hate writing negative reviews of independent films that are trying to make it in a very cluttered film scene. But this one just didn't do it for me. Rated: 1.5/5 Jul 16, 2019 Full Review Molly Henery The Blogging Banshee Between the Trees can't seem to decide what kind of film it wants to be. It tries very hard to marry two different stories into one plot, but it results in a confusing jumble. Rated: 3.5/10 Mar 9, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Eric D A great premise and solid direction but ultimately let down by the script. Interested in the director's next project. The opening scene sets the tone and hooks the viewer. A group of friends go hunting and find themselves hunted. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/26/23 Full Review Nate A Wow. There are worse movies, but not many. The music, oddly enough, stuck out as truly awful. The script was actively annoying. The acting felt like no one involved had met even a high school drama enthusiast. Making a movie is not easy, so I guess there are some points for effort. I hope they had more fun making it than I did watching it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/09/23 Full Review Anna B I found this to be entertaining. Humorous. Yet at the same time stupid. Ridiculous. But it did make me laugh. I may try smoking a little weed to see if that might help!!! LOL! Just kidding. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The story teases a cryptoid style horror but that is only in the dialog at the beginning between the main characters. I thought it was going in. It was not. What unfolds is a nicely concealed, layered horror story that brings hints of "madman" and "mutants". Douglas does a good job of regulating how much of the deeper plot elements get revealed. At some level the complexity of the movie elevates the experience of watching the story unfold. The cast is fully committed to the characters. Unfortunately they are not developed to the level that makes you connect with them. They are thinly veiled stereotypes, overdrawn. None are likeable. Still, "Between The Trees" has some stuff happening that is interesting, and there is some atmosphere that keeps your attention. It does go left midway when some comic relief appears- and falls flat. Special effects, minus CGI gunfire, stays practical. It is pretty good work and, even though it is limited, is a pleasure to see onscreen. The creature design and concept is a bit lackluster, kind of like a theme park mutant from a haunted attraction. Still the idea of It all is chillingly delightful. Overall, "Between The Trees" has as much working in its favor as it has going against it. It's worth checking out and despite it's flaws it is mildly enjoyable.
