Trailer: Adam Wingard’s “The Woods”

Having quickly become filmmakers to watch with both the home invasion film “You’re Next” and the delightfully throwback genre thriller “The Guest,” the team of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett turn their attention towards both the found-footage genre and the supernatural creature feature with “The Woods”.

Set to a downbeat cover of The Police’s “Every Breath You Take,” the film covers a premise well explored but adopts are very sinister and very dark tone more akin to a Richard Laymon novel. The film has also released a poster and set a September 16th U.S. release date.
