Chances are pretty good that unless you’re a geek (or dating a geek), you’ve never heard of The Woods – except maybe that it is the film that forced M. Night to rename The Village as it had attempted to steal the title. Lucky McKee’s followup to his very respectable directorial debut, May, has been stuck in studio release purgatory since its completion over two years ago. Sony now owns the rights to this eagerly awaited spookfest, but is, like its previous studio owners, letting it collect dust on the shelves. Jerks.
No one had seen much of it, save for the same cycle of production stills, but Twitch posted a reader-ripped trailer from the latest Amityville Horror DVD release and it definitely looks exciting. I love a ton of shots in the movie (though isn’t that pencil deal a lift from the Craft?) and a cameo by Bruce Campbell is never a bad thing.
