In the deep woods- GREAT TV-Thriller !
Verified purchase
Why 5 Stars? So, "In the deep woods" is Perkins last
movie (1992) and Perkins was dying on A.I.D.S. this time.
The Movie is a typical TV-Thriller but that doesn't matter.
Detective Miller (A. Perkins) is searching for an Murderer who
killed his Girl Friend and other womans in the woods...
The Movie is like a Game called "Who is the Murderer?"
One time you think you know the murderer then..Ups he wasn't !
Who is it now ? So if you are a Fan of ANTHONY PERKINS :
GET THIS DVD !!! You like Detective Thrillers? :
GET THIS DVD !!! You want Blood and Gore ? :
Forget it !
DVD : Aproxx: 92mins / Rated 18.

Terrible acting to match a terrible script
Verified purchase
Started off poorly and got worse. Script, acting and cinematography were terrible in equal measure. Why I watched this until the end is a complete mystery, unlike the twist. That is 91 minutes of my live wasted.

Death to spursReviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 January 2022
3.0 out of 5 stars
Perkins last film.
Anthony Perkins' portrayal of Norman Bates in Psycho has to be one of THE most stellar performances.
Shame then, that his career ended with this offering which is pedestrian with a highly improbable storyline.
A typical eye rolling moment is when Rosanna Arquettes character is allowed to wander about a crime scene touching everything.
Perkins puts in a mediocre performance which is forgivable if he was near the end and possibly in pain.
The ludicrous plot and the histrionics of Arquette along with the repetitive nature of the cutaways at moments of violence ultimately scupper this movie..
Still you can always sling on your Psycho dvd to relive Perkins' finest hour.

Anthony Perkins' final curtain
This made-for 1992 television movie is notable for being the final picture that actor Anthony Perkins appeared in. The fine performer, probably best known for his portrayal of creepy mummy's boy Norman Bates in the immortal 'Psycho', was already dying of AIDs whilst 'In the Deep Woods' was being filmed, and his death was a great loss on the acting world. Ironically, his character here, Paul Miller, P.I., is just as mysterious and intriguing as Mr. Bates, who Alfred Hitchcock first brought to light in 1960.

In this film. Rosanna Arquette stars as upwardly mobile children's author and illustrator Joanna Warren, a woman who is mourning for her old friend, who is the latest victim of a serial killer is on the loose. This elusive psychopath has a penchant for murdering young, successful women, leaving their cigarette burnt bodies in the woods. One day, at a book signing, Joanna is approached by Perkins' character, claiming to be a private investigator. A string of strange questions asked by him, and the fact that he appears to be shadowing her begins to worry Joanna, who quickly suspects him of being the psychopath. As she finds out more about him, the frightened girl soon begins to look with suspicion on those closest to her. Suddenly, everyone down from her boyfriend (D.W. Moffett) to her brother (Christopher Rydell) is a potential suspect.

Now, this is a low-key thriller which truly impressed me. It has an almost 'nourish' quality about it, and kept me glued to my seat. The acting from all involved was terrific, and the genuine suspense was felt throughout, and especially towards the end leading up to the shocking finale. 'In the Deep Woods' was also, just great fun, and had me guessing who the murderer was just as much as Roseanna Arquette's poor character. Just when you think you've got you're man - the tables turn, and it's back to the drawing board. A real treat for a small screen made feature!

The DVD is basic, it contains a clean transfer of the film, but with no bonus features or the option of any subtitles.

How can they charge for a 30 year old film!
Hadn’t noticed release date of film then realised after being charged for rent how old it was with give away signs like rubbish music and clothing of characters etc. To make things worse the focus on the filming cameras went out of focus on at least 3 occasions and the film itself is like one of those average efforts on tv in the afternoon. Criminal that Amazon are charging for an average film that’s out of focus and almost 30 years old. Disgrace. No wonder the company is prosperous

I just dis-liked it!
Anthony Perkins did a good job but the film wasn't very good on terms of character development etc.It has all the potential to be a decent thriller and it sounds good on paper but it just didn't do any justice for me.
