The second installment of Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight is coming to Netflix on Wednesday, Oct. 27, just in time for Halloween!
While it doesn’t have stellar reviews, the film is a unique take on the classic horror movie structure, turning it on its head over and over again. It replicates tropes while providing new perspectives. The “final girl” phenomenon is executed with poise.
Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight is suspenseful, gruesome, and unexpected, weaving a story that hasn’t been seen before where the victims are profoundly conscious of their own situation.
Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 will take place just a few hours or so after the end of the first film. From what the trailer shows, Zosia is not in for a fun time.
What is part 1 of Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight about?
Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight gives the audience a story that’s easy to understand: A monster has been loosed in the woods with a hobby of eating humans. However, the plot develops into something bigger and stranger than you’d ever expect… there are quite a few dangers lurking in the woods.
Zosia, Julek, Aneila, Bartek, and Daniel are technology-obsessed teens who are sent to a camp in the woods as a detox. This Polish film spends almost no time at the camp itself and even less time on any anti-technology propaganda, moving into the plot faster than most horror films.
In the movie, one of the five campers goes missing while camping in the woods with their counselor Miss Iza. On their concerned mission to find him, the teens face several horrific dangers lurking deep in the woods of Poland. Needless to say, this film is bloody, intense, and also funny at times.
What makes Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight special is how quickly the monster makes its appearance compared to films in the same genre where you don’t see the “thing” until the last 15 minutes of the movie. The kids know what they’re up against surprisingly early, and so having the cast be aware of the danger and tropes to avoid gives the protagonists an exciting new perspective.
If you want to watch part 2, definitely watch part 1 first. Otherwise, you won’t know anything about the aliens…!
What is part 2 of Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight about?
The cliffhanger at the end of the first film makes it clear that this story is not over. It’s been over a year and a half since the first movie came out, so anxious fans will finally be satisfied! Unless, of course, there’s a part 3 in the works.
Here’s the synopsis the Netflix YouTube channel provides for the sequel:
You think the villains are gone? You couldn’t be more wrong. Sometimes it’s hard to say who the real monster is. Adrenalina camp might be over, but the real massacre in the woods is only about to start. More blood, more monsters, less sleep.
Zosia, traumatized but alive, recounts her story to the police from a prison cell to no avail. Despite the evidence the cops have found, they don’t believe her and are puzzled by two monstrous men they also have locked away (we’ll see how they managed that!).
The perspective has changed from Zosia to a young police officer who has just been put on the case. The camp and teens are out of the picture. Can “experienced” adults with a handicap of disbelief fare any better against the killers in the woods? We’ll see in part 2.
When is Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 out?
The sequel to Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight comes out on Wednesday, Oct. 27, at 12:01 a.m. PT or 3:01 a.m. ET depending on your location.
