A Night in the Woods (2011)
Sunday 9th September 2012
From the award-winning director of acclaimed indie Brit-flick South West 9, A Night in the Woods, released on DVD on 10th September 2012 from Momentum Pictures Home Entertainment, is an impressive horror/psychological thriller hybrid that pushes all the right fright buttons.
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.
A Night in the Woodd is directed by Richard Parry (South West 9), starring US indie star Scoot McNairy (Monsters; In Search Of A Midnight Kiss), promising Australian actress Anna Skellern (Siren; The Descent: Part 2) and rising British actor Andrew Hawley (Snow White And The Huntsman; Wuthering Heights) and featuring impressive camera work by cinematographer Simon Dennis (who recently completed shooting the forthcoming big-screen adaptation of The Sweeney for director Nick Love).
