Taking place over three days, PDXtreme Fest showcases horror, crime, dark comedy, and everything in-between. The film is getting rave reviews from fans and critics, and the horror community has taken notice as well. "There's not just murder in these woods - there are also twists, turns and thrills aplenty!" said PDXtreme Fest founder and director Jeremy Jantz. Mike Thomas of Matchflick says, "It is a fun film, and one you'll talk about at the water cooler at work. It is a popcorn movie, so you can bet your friends who attend the film whodunit," and Michael Haberfelner from Re: Search My Trash in Austria agrees calling Murder in the Woods. "The film [that] delivers on its promise in heaps, culminating in a very tight finale with all the suspense and shocks in their right places and plenty of gore as well. Very cool genre entertainment!"
"I intended to make a main stream horror/slasher film to entertain, immerse and captivate a diverse global audience, and I'm confident we have accomplished that goal with Murder in the Woods," said Director/ Producer Luis Iga. "When you add a festival like PDXtreme, which showcases horror films, to the other renowned festivals we have exhibited Murder in the Woods; it only helps to validate the fact that this is truly a multi-genre, popcorn film at its best. I am extremely grateful to festival director Jeremy Jantz, along with his staff, for helping me, our great cast and crew realize our full potential," Mr. Iga added.
