Poster and Stills Reveal the Girl in Woods


A festival premiere is expected in the coming months for Jeremy Benson’s Girl in Woods, which has been described as a psychological thriller that plays out like an origin story for a slasher film. Sound interesting? Then read on to check out the poster art, a batch of stills, and the trailer!

This film is the birth of an urban legend; one of a mysterious savage that is believed to be killing people in the mountains,” says Benson. “I want audiences to be disturbed by what is happening to Grace and at the end understand the legacy these events leave behind.”

Girl in Woods stars Juliet Reeves (Automaton Transfusion; Zombies, Zombies, Zombies!), Charisma Carpenter (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Angel”, The Expendables), Jeremy London (Mallrats, “Party of Five”), Lee Perkins (Foxcatcher, KatieBird), and John Still (Hustle and Flow, Live Animals) and introduces Shaun Elizabeth as “Little Grace.”

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 secret, long hidden away, that will either lead her to safety or down a path of horror beyond anything she could comprehend.
