Look, we love Adam Wingard. Whenever there’s an opportunity to gush about the genre director, we’ll jump on it. Between 2013’s You’re Next and 2014’s The Guest, the Tennessee filmmaker has our complete and full attention.
Which is why we’re over the moon with his strange and mysterious follow-up, The Woods. Today, Wingard just up and dropped the teaser trailer, which doesn’t show much but promises a strangling, claustrophobic experience.
Soundtracked by a cover of The Police’s “Every Breath You Take”, it would appear as if a new batch of campers are going to quickly discover that, much like Evil Dead or Cabin Fever or Wrong Turn, the forest isn’t a nice place.
James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson all star in the film that hits theaters September 16th. Just in time for the autumn season, which is basically the only time to live.
