The Best Horror Movies Set in the Woods

List Criteria: Horror films with an outdoors, camping, or forest setting

Do the woods scare you? Do they bring you an uneasy feeling? Many horror movies have been set in the woods because the darkness and enclosed feeling adds to the fright and terror that can be experienced. Ranked in order of the most popular horror movie set in the woods to the least popular, you can see for yourself which horror movies manage to portray the ultimate feeling of fright by using the woods as a setting. If a particular favorite horror movie with a woods setting is ranked low on the list, go ahead and vote for it to see it get raised to a higher spot.

If you know a particularly great horror movie with a woods setting, go ahead and add it to the list to give others the same frightening experience that you enjoyed. Or, you can copy and paste from this list to make your own list of the best horror movies set in the woods. “Cabin in the Woods” had an obvious woods setting, but not all horror movies set in the woods imply it in their title.
