The UK trailer for Richard Parry’s horror flick, A Night in the Woods, has been sent over to us and you can watch the thing below. The film stars Monsters’ Scoot McNairy and takes place in a spooky-ass woodland on Dartmoor. One imagines unpleasant things occur. What with it being a horror movie. The found-footage setup is a bit dull but Dartmoor will offer some good production value. The trailer looks a wee bit Blair Witch Project but given the Devon/Cornish setting, I’d blame this one on evil pixies and their pixie dust. A Night in the Woods is released 7th September.
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 between 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.
UK Release Date: 7th September
