Danielle (Nancy Feliciano) finds herself in the woods, totally naked and with no recollection of what has put her here or who she is. Eventually though, she finds some cloths, and a note that partly brings back her memory: She was the mistress of Charlie (Phil Herman), who dropped her to go back to his wife and kid. she blackmailed him though in at least paying her an allowance, then confessed their affair to Charlie's wife though in a fit of rage - which prompted him to rape her. But that's not enough, obviously Charlie has drugged and kidnapped her, and now he's playing his wicked games with her, as everyday she wakes up, she finds herself in a different situation, often nude, sometimes even tied up, and she feels she has to be constantly on the run from someone who never shows himself to her ...

Only gradually, Danielle starts to remember more and more, until she remembers killing hersel ... but that can't be right, now can it.

With Danielle gone for weeks, her best friend Cindy (Tiffany Sinclair) grows increasingly worried, so she calls Charlie to look up on her, since she knows he still has a key to the appartment, and he finds her dead, complete with suicidenote and everything ...

So what happened?

Into the Woods is a very clever piece of genre cinema: It starts out as your usual survival movie, with a mystery plot thrown in just for good measure, and that's fine, especially since the movie's powervul lead Nancy Feliciano is more than capable of carrying the film. However, there comes a point where writer/director Phil Herman doesn't seem to be interested in just making another (well-crafted) genre flick anymore, and in the final ten or so minutes, he turns the film's whole plot on its head and at the same time ties up all the loose ends. And while this is a device that often destroys an otherwise good film in the hand of others or ends up being a tiresome cliché, Herman manages to pull this stunt off just beautifully and go off into another direction with his movie you would not have expected ... yet it makes perfect sense.

A pretty interesting and above all highly enjoyable film indeed.
