‘The Woods’ Trailer Promises a Scary Experience

The Woods - movie

The first teaser trailer has dropped for The Woods, the upcoming horror film from the directing-writing duo behind You’re Next and The Guest.

The trailer doesn’t offer up too much information as to what we’re expect here, other than an appropriately unsettling, scary time at the movies. A group of friend head into the woods, passing a sign that warns against being in the area after dark, and creepy stuff ensues.

Director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett have proven to be a successful team, with both You’re Next and The Guest going on to enjoy healthy followings. The duo know how to craft slick outings that belie their low-budgets, and this one looks to be tackling tone and atmosphere. At least from the early reviews shown off in the trailer, The Woods could be a horror flick to look out for.

The Woods, starring newcomers Callie Hernandez, James Allen McCune, and Brandon Scott, will open in the U.S. on September 16.
