11.18.11 by Ryan
Actor Vincent D'Onofrio is known for his work in movies like Full Metal Jacket and Men in Black as well as 10 seasons of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Now D'Onofrio is adding "director" to his resume with the horror movie Don't Go in the Woods, which mixes a typical horror premise but adds soulful indie music as well. The movie follows a young band who heads into the woods to help them focus on their music. Instead, they are hunted by a well-dressed man lurking in the woods.
With Tribeca Film looking to release Don't Go in the Woods on VOD December 26, a first trailer and poster has been made available online.
Before watching the trailer, check out the official synopsis below.
Don’t go in the woods is sound advice, especially when there's a killer on the loose. First-time director Vincent D'Onofrio explores love, greed and ruthlessness in this twisted musical/horror hybrid, telling the story of a young band who heads to the woods to get away from their everyday lives in order to focus on writing new songs. Hoping to walk away from the trip with new tunes that will score them their big break, they instead find themselves in the middle of a nightmare beyond comprehension.
Don't Go in the Woods will also open theatrically in Los Angeles and New York in January. The cast includes Eric Bogosian (D'Onofrio's Criminal Intent co-star), along with newcomers Bo Boddie and Gwynn Galitzer.
