The Woods Trailer

"A nightmare of classic proportions." Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett's new horror thriller The Woods, with a quote from Brad Miska saying its one of the "scariest movies ever made". The film is about a group of college students on a camping trip that discover they are not alone. This is supposed to introduce a new creepy horror character, which you'll barely get a glimpse of in this footage if you look close. The cast includes James Allen McCune, Callie Hernandez, Brandon Scott, Valorie Curry, Corbin Reid, and Wes Robinson. This could actually be pretty good, as these two filmmakers are fantastic and always deliver. I do want to see more from this, but I'm intrigued already.

Here's the first official trailer for Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett's The Woods, direct from YouTube:

  • "group of college students on a camping trip who discover they are not alone in the woods" this is as original as a Transformers movie.

      It's a horror movie dude. It's more about how they are executed than it is about originality.
      • Nash
        Agreed, but starting off with an original premise could make it even better, even in this genre. I thought that, for example, the original premise of The Cabin in the Woods very much contributed to it being an interesting and enjoyable horror movie.
        • Jon Odishaw
          Cabin in the woods is the modern staple for originality in horror. It follows was pretty original, too. But films like The Conjuring, Insidious and Babadook were fantastic(imo) even though they were unoriginal. So while I agree originality would be nice, I have enjoyed just as many unoriginal scripts with talented directors at the helm.
          • I thought the Babadook was very original. Could you come up with a movie that has dealt with a similar concept ?
          • Jon Odishaw
            Well it was a great spin but you could argue that a quick description would be "a mother and son deal with a melevolant force in their home". Whereas films like insidious and conjuring would be something like "a family seeks paranormal help after a melevolant force haunts their home." My point is it doesn't matter to me how sumple a description of a film is as long as there is talent behind the camera.
          • DAVIDPD
            Yeah. Agreed, essentially it was a boogeyman type film.
          • David Diaz
            I loved the Babadook. Creeped me out. I'll check out the Canal though.
          • The badadook sucked Jon. Watch the canal. Same theme, way scarier...
        • shiboleth
          Thank you sir for praising The Cabin in the Woods. Fine movie that was and is ...
        • Charles Knowlton
          Cabin In The Woods was embarrassingly bad. I don't get the praise for that film at all. It turned into such a ridiculous joke.
      • How will it be executed that could make a difference? A bunch of young adults doing the sex drugs and alcohol thing as usual and then interrupted by a stalker who will chase half naked girls who will scream every 10 mn.
        • Jon Odishaw
          well first off I would put money on the movie NOT going down the way you just described.
          • You will loose your money.
          • steve
            Ignorant lol. That formula is from the early 2000's. I take it you haven't seen many horror movies past that or you don't know much about movies in general. A ton of movies go by the same general plot outline but it's executed in different fashions. There could be two kidnapping stories and yeah, there's a bad guy. But what are his motives, is there character development, how does the protagonist stop the kidnaper? There's different ways to go about the same formula and it looks like this one does it right.
          • Well, to be fair, Teen horror genre isn't my cup of tea. I take it you're fan of the Paranormal BS Activity franchise and consider Blair witch as a masterpiece. ( this is for the change) I wouldn't want to sound pretentious, but I've probably watched more movies than you could watch for the rest of your life. Listen, neither what I've seen in this trailer ( Lame found footage style, Overdone cliché scenes we've seen 1000 times in cheap Teen-movies, etc.) nor the generic synopsis are interesting enough to be worth of my time.
  • Jon Odishaw
    The Guest and You're next are two of my favourites of the last five years.
    • don't you forget sinister and the canal? By the way look for the survivalist. You will like that...
  • Damn you trees! They should have stayed home and played Xbox.
  • shiboleth
    This scares me in a way which reminds on Blair Witch Project. Version 2016. I truly don't want that experience again ...

    I can't believe how many times I've read those same quotes in other trailers that just turned out to be big letdowns. I'll remain optimistic about it but my hopes aren't very high.
  • Jonathan
    It's a nice change of pace to finally hear an intense, slow cover of an 80s song during a horror movie trailer. But, cliches aside, Adam Wingard hasn't let me down yet. I can't wait to see this.
    Tasty as fuqqqqq.
  • cuckoozey
    Hyperbolic quotes aside - this might be passable, but this trailer is pretty bad. I thought trailers were going to stop doing that overused thing where a girl sings a popular song slowly?
    • And I thought that this awful found footage style was dead.
      • David Diaz
        This isn't a found footage film at all. None of the characters were filming any of it.
        • But it shares a lot with its awful style. A super shaky camera.
  • great trailer, on my list. Like these kind of movies. Yup, all dead and the endshot leaves you in doubt...
  • Payne by name
    I thoroughly enjoyed The Guest, and I like a horror, so I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for this one.
  • Brandon
    I'm interested but they gotta chill out with all these damn quotes!
  • Terry Craig
    Lol this trailer didn't reveal anything at all. Basically just summed up critical praise for hype. I likedWingard/Barrett's You're Next quite a bit, though, so I'm looking forward on some actual info on the film.
