Having its UK premiere as part of the Film4 FrightFest in London, we’ve landed an excluisve new image and two festival posters for Patricio Valladares’s Chilean Hidden in the Woods.
“This raw slice of demented energy. Inspired by true events, is the terrifying story of two sisters raised in forest isolation and subjected to torments from their abusive drug dealer father. When they finally report him, he chainsaws the two investigating cops to death and is jailed before he can tell psychotic drug lord Costello the exact location of his remaining stash. So Costello sends violent henchmen to find the missing merchandise hidden somewhere in the woods. Reaching heights of deranged frenzy unlike anything seen before, director Patricio Valladares is yet another exciting talent to emerge from the current hotbed of South American horror.”
From Thursday, August 23 to Monday, August 27 the UK’s leading event for horror fantasy fans will be back at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square to present 48 films in three screens. Empire 1 will house the main event while the Discovery and the newly-created Re-Discovery strand will play in Empires 4 & 5. There are eleven countries represented, with a record-beating fifteen world premieres and twenty-three UK or European premieres.
