Tarantino has a lot to answer for...

Ever since Tarantino and Rodriguez made GRINDHOUSE, their double-bill tribute to the exploitation cinema of the 1970s, B-movies have been emulating their style. To this end they'll add in effects to make it look like the film is scratched and damaged and throw in old-fashioned 'coming attractions' titles and the like. That's the case with IF A TREE FALLS, an absolutely dreadful addition to the horror genre that comes from Canada. The film's simplistic narrative is about a group of teenage friends who venture out into the woods and are assailed by a gang of masked attackers. Plenty of bad taste stuff ensues, including cheap and lousy gore effects and lots of screaming. The film is near plot less and the acting very poor with irritating dialogue and horrendous shrill screaming and the like. I found the movie to be pretty sleazy and unpleasant but never powerful in the way a film like LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT was genuinely powerful. Instead it's a complete waste of time.

the shaky camera's makes this flick a failure for an exploitation

If A Tree Falls is a throwback to the exploitation genre. A genre that I like for several reasons. Mostly the quality of editing and the use of cheap reel results in a lot of hiss and noises in the sound and a lot of scratches in the picture. A thing that was done here by editing but this flick do has it's problems. If you want to go back to the exploitation genre than you also have to look out for clothing or the way you use the camera. Piercings weren't done back then in the seventies and that's something people will have problems with. But being a low budget the director Gabriel Carrer tried to hide that by using shaky shots when the attacks are being done. And that annoyed me a lot. You never can see clearly what is going on. When he is not using the shaky camera then things happen off-camera. Things not done in the exploitation genre. I found it not scary at all and even not suspenseful. There is a lot of red stuff but gore is left out, I admit, intestines are shown but it was too late. As so many flicks it started so good and brutal before the opening credits but once they passed it moves away from the exploitation genre. What they did in post production with the effects to make it have a exploitation look didn't bother me at all and it worked but why o why did he have to add shaky camera's into this flick. The acting was rather good and believable. this shows that red stuff and some pieces of gore doesn't make a good flick. Gore 2/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 2/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5

Absolute rubbish

I always try to find something to like about every horror film I watch, being a huge fan of the genre, and I am usually able to find something that justified the 90 mins or so spent on a movie. However, having just watched this film I am at a loss as to find any redeeming qualities about it. I'm no expert, just a movie lover but this has honestly got to be one of the worst films I have ever seen. I quite like the grindhouse feel to movies, with the crackling film reels etc (told you I'm not an expert)and was quite taken with the opening ten mins or so, purely on the way it was filmed. But I have to say, I have no idea whatsoever what this was about, other than four people in the woods being terrorised by some blokes with tights on their heads.... The dialogue was awful, the acting a hundred times worse, but for me, being left with no clear idea of what I had just watched, left me very disappointed. My mind may have wondered slightly and I missed the whole explanation to the whole thing, but the audio quality was all over the place also, so that maybe explains it. I give this 2 out of 10 and the 2 is purely for the grindhouse look to the whole thing.
