[Fantasia '12] More Dirty Horror ‘Hidden in the Woods’

HIDDEN IN THE WOODS 2

The 16th annual Fantasia International Film Festival is gearing up to take Montreal by storm with three weeks of inspiration and thrills starting July 19 and running all the way through August 7. Yesterday we revealed the full Second Wave announement that included gems such as Sleep Tight and A Fantastic Fear of Everything. Now we’re revealing new imagery from a handful of titles…

Patricio Valladares’s Chilean Hidden in the Woods, which also screens at Frightfest in the UK, looks absolutely insane. While we’ve already shared a poster and image, we now have several new looks at the film that are rustic, dirty and bloody. I’m IN.

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.
