Artsploitation Acquires Gory ‘Wither’ and ‘Hidden in the Woods’

HIDDEN IN THE WOODS 7

Artsploitation Films has U.S. rights to Chilean horror film Hidden in the Woods, pictured above, for a 2013 release, reports Variety. The deal was closed at the recently concluded Ventana Sur Film Market in Buenos Aires. The film had its world premiere at Fantasia Fest in Montreal earlier this year and also screened at FrightFest.

Patricio Valladares directed from a script he co-wrote with Andrea Calvaletto. “The story is set in the woods of an Appalachian-like area of Chile and follows two sisters, portrayed by Siboney Lo and Carolina Escobar, who escape from their sexually abusive father and find existence on the run just as perilous.

We can also add that Artsploitation acquired the awesome Wither from the Blood Runs Cold directors Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund.

In the Evil Dead-ish gorefest, “Ida and Albin are a happy couple. They set off to a cabin in the vast Swedish woodlands to have a fun holiday with their friends. But under the floorboards waits an evil from Sweden’s dark past.” Check out some new art inside.
