The trailer for this fall’s The Woods debuted today, boasting that it’s one of the “scariest movies ever,” which is an awfully big boast to live up to. Let’s take a look at the trailer to see if there’s any evidence therein to indicate that it might be as advertised.
The slow-playing cover songs are played out, but that cover of “Every Breath You Take” is sufficiently chilling. There’s nothing in the footage, however, that suggests it’s a slightly better shot Blair Witch Project.
So, should we trust it?
Probably. Why? Because it comes from director Adam Wingard, the man behind You’re Next, The Guest, and V/H/S.
As importantly, the people who have seen it have been impressed.
I have seen THE WOODS and it is, in my professional opinion, spooky af https://t.co/4JdGfsvOlZ— Sam Zimmerman (@samdzimmerman) May 10, 2016
Details about the movie have been kept under wraps, but I think we all know who the film’s real villain is: Katie Featherston, who was diagnosed as clinically insane and went on a killing spree after appearing in all those Paranormal Activity films.
