review by
Mike Haberfelner

Just like every other year, Steve (Greg James) takes his best friends Josh (Michael Draper), Mack (Jonny Lee) and Dave (Dan Kyle) on a hunting trip to a surprise location, and this year it just happens to be a cabin in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone reception. So far, this doesn't seem at all odd to his friends - but what they don't know is that Steve's marriage to Maggie (Hannah Barefoot) is crumbling, and he has an idea that his best friends might be involved in this. So he has taken some precautions to keep them here until he has exacted his revenge, like sabotaged their car or stolen and destroyed their cellphones - even if there's no reception, it doesn't hurt to make sure after all. The one thing he hasn't taken into account though is that nearby - lives a family of monsters (or at least gravely deformed humans), and they don't really take it lightly when Steve and company accidently shoot one of their ranks - so for Steve's friends it's soon a fight for survival against enemies from within and without ...

 

Now Between the Trees sure is an unusual genre blend, combining a rather down-to-earth psycho thriller and a rather out-of-this-world in one single narrative - but it unexpectedly works like a charm, as it is narratively light-footed enough to change genres at the drop of a hat and on top of that really puts its emphasis on tension and suspense, paired with surprises set at just the right points to be more than just jump scares. And of course, great locations and a solid cast totally help bringing this one across as just a really strong genre piece.
