Succulent plot depiction, huh? ‘Confronting her evil presences’. The issue is that it’s such a catch-all term, to the point that with regards to Benson’s methodology it just means Grace meandering around the backwoods conversing with herself, having flashbacks and dreams, and for the most part making no endeavor to really, y’know, go home. It’s a mental repulsiveness based on a place of contraptions and constrained, inadequately composed character inspirations.
It’s mostly down to spending plan, additionally intensely down to ability. Benson plainly needed this to be a thick, abuse style repulsiveness getting back to back to prior decades; to be sure the way he titles Girl in Woods as opposed to Girl in the Woods recommends a gruffness and stripped back naturalism he never fully accomplishes, not even with the Hammer-style opening burst of retro titling. Thick repulsiveness of years past frequently didn’t have any cash either yet they made either a feeling of camp, dramatic phlebotomy or unmistakable, low-fi fear – Benson succeeds in not one or the other.
