Director Adam Wingard is a true talent, no question about that. While ‘The Guest’ was well made it failed to impress me as much as his previous work in ‘You’re Next’ which is still one of my favorite films ever, period. While little is known about his next project we do know that it is titled ‘The Woods’ and of course was written by his long time collaborator Simon Barrett.
All we know is that the film will deal with a group of college students who head off on a camping trip and “discover they are not alone”.
Pretty much sounds like any horror film ever made but I’m thinking in Wingard and Barrett’s hands we’ll be in for more than a few surprises and it seems that this story line would lend itself to a little more horror and much less suspense and mystery.
Sounds like things will move quick as a spring shoot is anticipated.
I”ll keep an eye on it for you.
