Ahead of its U.S. release next week, a poster, trailer and images have arrived online for director Raine McCormack’s British folk horror The Village in the Woods, which tells the story of a remote village whose inhabitants survival relies on luring unsuspecting guests.
Deep in the forgotten woods, lies a village, at the center of which stands the old Harbour Inn. This rotten pub is the target of an inheritance fraud by young couple Jason and Nicky. Tempted by promises of easy money, Nicky pretends to be the Inn’s sole heiress. On arrival, they find the villagers welcoming and friendly… perhaps a little too much so. Always there. Always smiling. Always watching. The couple do their best to continue the scam but things start to go very wrong. Their paranoia slowly builds to terror as unsettling and grim events unfold. The Village in the Woods is not all it seems.
The Village in the Woods is set for release on January 19th in the U.S., and features a cast that includes Richard Hope, Therese Bradley, Beth Park, Robert Vernon, Rebecca Johnson, Timothy Harker, Sidney Kean, Katie Alexander-Thom and Phill Martin.
