DVD review: Escape to Black Tree Forest (2012)
Two weeks after the events in "Terror at Black Tree Forest" young Mare Strode returns home from Falls City Memorial Hospital. She brutally murders her mother and "escapes" back to Black Tree Forest. There, she dons the original psycho's outfit and continues the cycle of murder with a whole new group of adventure-seeking teens. Escape to Black Tree Forest is written, produced, shot, edited and directed by Dustin Ferguson who also is involved in Special effects and Visual effects. Mediocre acting, badly shot and edited and it has serious problems with its pacing. On the topic of pacing, lets just say that it takes approx 50 minutes between the first and second kill. During that time nothing really happens, we get overlong scenes of driving and so on. This flick is in SERIOUS need of some severe editing. The gore is very lame in this, the only good scenes appear in flashbacks from the first flick (it actually contained some gore fx) being shown as the characters speak of the events that took place in it. No T & A in this.
This review is based upon the region all (Region 0) DVD release from RHR Home Video.
Rating: 0½ out of 7. It´s as bad as the previous flick, Terror at Black Tree Forest, slow paced and boring. I can´t recommend Escape to Black Tree Forest to anyone...
