You’ve been hearing a lot of Hammer Films’ latest production, Wake Wood, and now the first official clip has made its way online over at Empire and is in desperate need of living blood. Watch it inside. What the hell did they just bring into the world?
The previously released UK trailer reminds me of Texas Chainsaw Massacre had there been an entire town of redneck psychos, with a hint of Wicker Man. Dark Sky Films will release here in the States later this year.
“Still grieving the death of nine-year-old Alice – their only child – at the jaws of a crazed dog, vet Patrick and pharmacist Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood where they learn of a pagan ritual that will allow them three more days with Alice. The couple find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once they agree terms with Arthur, the village’s leader, a far bigger question looms – what will they do when it’s time for Alice to go back?”
