Exclusive photos, director’s comments, new poster/trailer: psychochiller “GIRL IN WOODS”Movies/TV,News Michael Gingold No Comment
Disturbing images plague the title character’s mind in GIRL IN WOODS, a psychological horror film from writer/director Jeremy Benson. We’ve got a batch of exclusive pics to share, plus the latest poster and trailer and words from the filmmaker.
GIRL IN WOODS stars Juliet Reeves, ANGEL’s Charisma Carpenter, Jeremy London, Lee Perkins and John Still. Here’s the synopsis: “The death of her fiancé [London] leaves Grace [Reeves] abandoned in a harsh mountain wilderness. Struggling against the elements and fighting off starvation, the fragile shell of her sanity begins to crack. Soon her struggle worsens when she notices a dark figure stalking her, watching her every step. Through memories of her mother [Carpenter] and father [Perkins], Grace finds a long-forgotten truth about herself. It is this, long hidden away, that might lead her to safety, or down a path of horror beyond anything she could comprehend.”
“GIRL IN WOODS was a passion project for us,” Benson says. “The idea of doing an origin story to what would be a slasher film interested me, and being able to wrap that inside of a psychological thriller seemed to add a level of storytelling that, as a horror fan, I felt would be welcomed. This film is the birth of an urban legend—one of a mysterious savage that is believed to be killing people in the mountains. I want audiences to be disturbed by what is happening to Grace, and at the end understand the legacy these events leave behind.”
