Corin Hardy‘s feature directorial debut for Occupant, The Woods, is currently shooting in Ireland but has released a poster for the Cannes Film Market. It features a malevolent face in the sky above an unassuming house. I think the first time I saw this was in Fright Night in 1985 – does it date back to earlier?
Co-written and directed by award-winning music video director Corin Hardy, “The Woods follows a London-based conservationist who is sent to Ireland to investigate an ancient forest. During his survey, he accidentally disturbs the hallowed grounds and finds himself in a fight for survival to protect his family from an ancient brood of creatures.”
Written by Hardy and Olga Barreneche, The Woods stars Joseph Mawle (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, “Game of Thrones”) and Bojana Novakovic (Devil, Edge of Darkness).
