The Woods of Astrid (2010) – By Brian Morton

Web series are a difficult nut to crack.  Getting people to come back to the web week after week is something that, when it’s done, will change the face of entertainment.  Well, a new series, The Woods of Astrid, is going to try to keep you coming back for more…and, in my opinion, they have a real chance.

Here’s the story (so far), Sarah’s parents were murdered when she was a young girl, and she was the one to discover the bloody remains.  In her angst, Sarah wanders into the woods, where she disappears.  Now, after Sarah’s been missing for a week, her brother goes into the seemingly evil woods to find her…the woods where it’s rumored that a witch lives.

The Woods of Astrid is a pretty good start to what could be a great series.  While the acting isn’t perfect, the story is compelling and draws you in…plus, it’s on the web and it’s free!!!  I’m giving The Woods of Astrid (episode 1) 3 out of 4 cigars, it’s not perfect, but it’s just the beginning and it has all kinds of potential!  You can check it out for yourself by clicking here.
