Peacock's The Girl in the Woods is, sadly, as generic as its title

  • The drama about a teenage runaway shows up in a small Oregon town, claiming to be from a cult whose purpose is to protect humankind from the monsters that lie beyond a mysterious door in the forest, is a bland pastiche of YA horror tropes, says Angie Han. "From start to finish, The Girl in the Woods feels like the fat-free version of all the other shows and movies it brings to mind," says Han. "(Besides the ones named above, the show also gives off strong 'post-Hunger Games adaptation of second-tier dystopian YA book series' vibes, particularly when it comes to the beige-clad Disciples of Dawn and their violent adolescent rites of passage.)"
