The Monsters in the Woods Rear Their Heads
You see? This is reason #89 while I will always remain a damned city boy. No matter how you slice it there is stuff happening deep within the woods that I want absolutely no part of! From inbred mutants to well, yes, monsters, you just never know what is gonna smack you in the face (thereby tearing it off and sending it sailing through the air) next.
Such is the case with Jason Horton's latest indie effort Monsters in the Woods starring Glenn Plummer (Speed, Saw 2, The Salton Sea), Lee Perkins (Live Evil, The Red Machine, Katiebird), Kristian Bernard (Ride or Die, Sugar Valentine, Vegas Vampires) and Annemarie Pazmino (Edges of Darkness, On Bloody Sunday, Small Town Saturday Night).
"The plot is semi based in reality," says director Horton. "When I was shopping [his previous film] Trap to distributors, I actually had one say they would take the movie if I would shoot monster scenes for it and turn it into a creature feature. The idea was so ridiculous considering the plot of Trap that I thought it would make for a good next movie."
"We wrapped the "movie within a movie" last week and are shooting the rest up in Big Bear and Malibu in August." Horton continues. "The pictures [below] are of our "movie monster" from that shoot. We're keeping the real monsters under wraps."
"A low-budget film crew treks deep into the wilderness to shoot horror sequences for their unsellable indie-drama. They soon find themselves in the midst of their own horror show as they are hunted down real monsters."
