I reviewed Stefano Lodovichi’s film Deep in the Wood for The Slaughtered Bird:
Movies with twists in the plot are difficult to review, as even the mere mention of a twist adjusts the reader’s expectations. So enough said about that, the better. Yes, there’s Krampus in it, which is kind of dumb, but the film doesn’t go to the silly places Krampus-themed movies live in. The movie, at its heart, is about what happens when a beloved child goes away, and the effect on not just a family, but a community.
I’ve been on a horrible film streak of late. Does this one make the grade? Click to find out!
