The retro-slasher Backwoods hits VOD platforms on December 1st from Gravitas Ventures and Kamikaze Dogfight. The film introduces The Hangman, a hulking supernatural beast who aims to be the next great slasher icon! Check out the trailer and read more about Backwoods below.
High school cheerleader Molly woke bound and gagged in the trunk of her boyfriend’s car. That was the high point of her night. After escaping her abductor and fleeing into the nearby forest, she comes face-to-face with the town urban legend: The Hangman, a deformed zealot said to hang male trespassers and keep the women as “brides”. Now, Molly, along with her best friend and would-be rescuer Noah must work together to avoid becoming his latest victims.
Backwoods is directed by Thomas Smith from a screenplay he co-scribed with Erin Lilley. The film stars Jeremy Sande, Isabella Alberti, and Tahj Vaughans.
