A new film from Adam Wingard - helmer of You're Next and The Guest - is always likely to get our attention. And when it's pitched as the scariest horror ever made that's doubly true.
Here's the first trailer for The Woods.
It's certainly a creepy and intense trailer, and the early buzz in the quotes couldn't be more positive about the film. The plot is about a group of college students who head into the woods and find out they are not alone.
It couldn't sound more generic but Wingard has proven himself time and again with material that would be bland in another director's hands and this time he's suggesting that The Woods will be a full on horror experience, without the blackly comic elements of his most recent efforts.
That said, suggesting a new film is going to be the pinnacle of the horror genre is always a dangerous game, putting a lot more pressure on the film when it does finally release. True horror fans will be ready and willing to criticise if it doesn't manage to deliver.
The Woods will be arriving in cinemas in the States in September 2016. There's no Irish release date yet.
