Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight (2020) #HorrorMovie Review

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight (2020) is a German horror film with English overdubs for us that only know one language. Netflix has been finding an amazing collection of films that I normally wouldn’t have seen or probably known about and this is a great addition to my favorite horror movies. Of course, I’m a little leary of things I find on Netflix, because it’s a coin-toss on whether I’m going to make it beyond the first twenty minutes.

I enjoyed the multiple coming out scenes and not just about being gay. There’s even a strange bondage bit in a church.

The backstory has a touch of Color Out of Space to it, which added a nuance that made the reason for the killers to be more cohesive. Speaking of them, they are super gross, though not super original and that was just fine.

5 Stars

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight embodies everything I love about the horror genre and that is why I’m giving it 5 out of 5 Stars.
