A friend of mine has a running joke whenever I recommend a horror movie to her: Is it about a group of stupid 20-somethings who take a vacation in the woods? Because I'll pass. Seriously though, how does anyone go to the woods anymore, like, for fun? Horror movies should have killed any desire to ever do that again.
But alas, here we are again--back in the woods with a group of nobodies. They're simply calling this movie THE WOODS, to avoid any confusion about the IQ level. Word on the street is (i.e. other critics have said) it's actually really good and "the best horror movie ever made." I admit, the teaser trailer below is pretty aces. But years of watching movies like this have left me jaded. I just hope it lives up to the hype...
Check it out:
THE WOODS is in theaters September 16.
