Network / The British Film DVD release of the House in the Woods, starring Patricia Roc, Ronald Howard, and Michael Hough. It was just a murder story... or was it happening for real?

An off-beat, minimalist thriller from idiosyncratic director Maxwell Munden, The House in the Woods stars B-movie stalwarts Patricia Roc and Michael Gough as a trendy couple who get in over their head in their quest for a little peace and quiet.

Though The House in the Woods is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio, there are still some issues with the soundtrack. While they have been corrected as much as possible viewers will notice intermittent audio issues.

Geoffrey Carter, a highly strung author suffering from writer’s block, petulantly insists to his wife that they flee their annoying neighbours and move somewhere more peaceful. They find a delightfully remote woodland cottage that the owner, a melancholic, widowed artist with a Larry Adler fixation, is happy to rent them at a pittance. All too soon they realise that something is not quite right with their landlord and, much to Geoffrey’s horror, he realises that the plot of his new murder mystery is being played out for real…
