Something in the Woods is a family-friendly movie that tells the story of a family vacation and their unexpected encounter with a mythical creature in the woods. The film is set in the 1960s, providing a nostalgic feeling and a sense of simplicity that reduces the tension in the story. The movie opens with the Smith family, consisting of a couple, their two children, and their dog, driving to their cabin in the woods for their annual vacation. Their arrival at the cabin marks the start of a happy time for them, as they enjoy the scenery and the activities available in the woods. However, things take a turn for the worse when their dog goes missing and strange noises are heard in the forest.

The family reports the disappearance of their dog to the local sheriff, who dismisses it as a case of a wild animal attack. Meanwhile, the family members become increasingly curious about what might have happened to their dog and decide to venture into the woods to investigate. After some time walking, they come across strange footprints that are much larger than that of any animal they have seen. The footprints lead them to a clearing where they spot a strange creature that looks like a Sasquatch.

Initially, the family is frightened by the sight of the creature, but as they observe it from a distance, they realize that it is peaceful and not aggressive. In fact, they even start to feel a sense of empathy towards the creature, seeing it more as a misunderstood being than a scary monster. They quickly realize that their encounter with the creature might have a significant impact on the world, as locating the creature could open doors to scientific discoveries and advancements.

Throughout the film, the story focuses more on the relationship between the family and the creature rather than creating a sense of horror. There is a subtle underlying message about embracing differences and seeing beyond appearances. There is also a sense of hope and wonder that is present in the film, which highlights the beauty of the natural world and the mysteries it holds.

The performances of the actors in Something in the Woods were solid, with David D. Ford delivering an authentic portrayal of a loving and protective father. Angela Harger, who played his wife, also played an equally convincing role as a caring and nurturing mother. The young actors, Kayden Grisham and Darin Foltz, who played their kids, were also commendable in their roles, making viewers feel emotionally invested in their story.

The cinematography and the visual effects employed in this movie were also impressive, considering its low budget. The film managed to capture the beauty of the wilderness while darkening the scenes to create a mysterious and eerie atmosphere. The sound design was also noteworthy, with the subtle sounds of the forest creating intense suspense and tension for the audience.

Overall, Something in the Woods is a charming movie that is perfect for families looking for unique and wholesome entertainment. With its warm and engaging narrative, it is a great way to escape reality and immerse oneself in a world that is full of wonder, mystery and the unknown. The movie is a great reminder that nature still has secrets to reveal, and it is up to humanity to respect and protect it.
