Evelyn (Jennifer Pierce Mathus) and Redd (David Rees Snell) have just moved into a new home, first and foremost because Redd gets a job as caretaker at the special need school their son Kane (John-Michael Fisher) has to go to, which saves them massively on tuition. Kane however hates it there and soon runs in to trouble. On the plus side (or so they think), Evelyn and Redd find a beautiful vintage door with no house attached to it in the middle of the woods, and take it home - where it fits just beautifully for the wardrobe. That said, creepy things start to happen once the door is in the house - strange noises, inexplicable occurences, that sort of thing, nothing to get totally worried about. But when Evelyn's personal psychic Uriah (CJ Jones) sees the door he beseeches Evelyn to get rid of it, which she agrees to because she trusts him. But when Redd, a capable handyman, tries to do just that, he finds it next to impossible. Evelyn does some research on the door, and finds out it was once attached to a house that was in connection with the disappearance of quite a number of children, until it was burned down. Now she's getting worried for sure, and wouldn't you know it, before she can warn anyone, Kane is lured behind the door and gone ... gone to another plane of existence, and not a pleasant one.

Under Uriah's guidance, Evelyn and Redd drag the door back to the woods, then the psychic starts a ritual to open the door and go to find Kane. But whatever's behind the door is not exactly of the friendly variety, and Uriah, Evelyn and Redd might be no match for it ...

 

Door in the Woods is a quite clever little paranormal shocker, as it doesn't try to overwhelm its audience with spectacle to hide a lack of actual story but is based on a well-structured plot and really focuses on its main characters rather than effects, and through their actions and reactions their fears become much more palpable, and the finale, however low key it might be, is surely creepy as heck - of course also thanks to a directorial effort that is heavy on atmosphere throughout, and very believable and relatable performances by all involved.

Certainly worth a look.
