Here are 5 reasons why you should see Between The Trees:
5) The Camaraderie!
Josh (Michael Draper), Steve (Greg James), Mack (Jonny Lee), and Dave (Dan Kyle) are the four friends stranded in the woods. Draper, James, Lee, and Kyle have instant chemistry with each other, especially as their banter switches between drama and comedy. Their group dynamic is what keeps the movie watchable and what drives the suspense.
4) The Killer!
The deranged killer in the horror movie is quite interesting to look at with his simple costume and detailed prosthetics. The hunter uses weapons, like a crossbow, during kill scenes. The face is so creepy looking, especially when cinematographer Chuck Greenwood makes great use of shadows.

Screenwriter Sam Klarreich makes interesting choices using flashbacks as a storytelling device. The plot starts out as a hilarious road trip before dissecting the friendship among the cast. You think the movie is starting this way and then surprise, surprise it’s really something else.
2) The Setting!
The cinematography by Chuck Greenwood captures the darkness and isolation of the woods. The chemistry amongst the ensemble cast is caught on camera in wide shots. Making great use of its single setting, director Brad Douglas steers the narrative with pulse-pounding suspense.
1) A Suspenseful Thriller!
Bloody and suspenseful, Between The Trees draws tension from its solid cast and eerie setting. The deranged killer is downright awesome in its design and makeup.
