Image Gallery & Release Date Drop for A Night in the Woods
Are you ready for a new “kids go into the woods and face something horrible” flick? Hell; is the world?? Either way we’re getting a new entry into this much utilized plot device. The film is A NIGHT IN THE WOODS and it’s coming at us from the UK. The film is directed by Richard Parry (a BAFTA-nominated war photographer and documentary maker) and stars Scoot McNairy, Anna Skellern, and Andrew Hawley. Check out the plot crunch:
On what is intended to be a fun camping trip to investigate and to chill in the atmosphere of the legendary haunted past of Dartmoor’s Wistman’s Woods, Brody, his girlfriend Kerry, and her cousin Leo very soon find themselves mysteriously ill at ease both with their surroundings and their companions. Bad moods and minor disagreements rapidly lead to feelings of severe paranoia, sexual tension, fear, and eventually violence among the three friends, a situation that worsens as the evening draws in. At first they suspect the conflicts are simply the result of being thrown together in the ancient, eerie surroundings, but as night closes upon them, each begins to wonder if darker forces are at work.
I’m giving this one the benefit of the doubt based on the directer, Richard Parry. He may bring a new element to the whole “kids get stalked and killed in the woods” formula. What do you think? Now check out the trailer and some stills below:
