Originally titled The Good People, short film and music video prodigy Corin Hardy’s debut feature was renamed The Woods, and on tap for you today is the second piece of poster art for the film, which is currently in post-production. Dig it!
The Irish folk horror stars Joseph Mawle (“Game of Thrones”) and Bojana Novakovic (Edge of Darkness) with Michael McElhatton (Shadow Dancer) and Michael Smiley (A Field in England, “Spaced”).
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 believe 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 house 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 small holding.
