Now in post-production is director Corin Hardy's upcoming Irish horror 'The Woods'. The new rather familiar looking artwork from the project gives it an instant 'cabin in the woods' supernatural feel. With the red stained poster in particular treading somewhere between 'The Blair Witch Project' and 'Evil Dead'. However, 'The Woods' may not revolve around ghosts, witches or blood-thirsty trees at all according to its newly released extended plot synopsis. It reads very much initially like a home invasion flick set in the woods but we all know these "vicious beings" mentioned are demonic creatures intent on harming those trapped inside. Bojana Novakovic ('Drag Me to Hell'), Joseph Mawle ('Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'), Michael McElhatton, Michael Smiley ('Kill List') and Charlotte Williams all star. Check out the goods below.
"Fraught economic pressures force Adam Hitchens, a London based conservationist, to take a job surveying an Irish forest. He hopes the move to a mill house deep in the idyllic countryside will be a breath of fresh air for his wife Clare, their young baby son Finn and dog Iggy.
Not everyone approves of their arrival however. A farmer with strong beliefs in local tradition and folklore warns of danger if Adam does not stop unsettling the ancient, sacred forests with his tests and assessments. When someone or something breaks into the house at night with the apparent intention of harming their child, the worried couple believes the locals are taking it a step further, intent on driving them away.
But after the police aren't able to catch the elusive intruders, events take a turn for the unexplainable and terrifying when the millhouse comes under attack. Stranded in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by darkness, Adam and Clare must fight to protect their child and themselves and survive the invasion of horrific, vicious beings that emerge from deep within the sacred woods surrounding their smallholding."
