Check out the opening scene from indie slasher horror “North Woods”. The film is written and directed by Chris Moore, co-written by Jason Kasper and stars Debbie Rochon, Chris Moore, Sarah McCraw, Andrew Roach, J.K. Michaels, Alex Erin Johnson, Amanda Grussaute, Lauren Orsini, Liddy Carmichael, Andria Smith, Megan O'Bryan. “North Woods” is giallo inspired by the greats like Dario Argento, Mario Bava, and David Lynch. It focuses on the golden era of modern horror-the 70’s and early 80’s.
From within the woods, a blood spattered young man, named John Prescott, runs out in front of a car, terrified and muttering gibberish. Enter Dr. Pamela Alley, an esteemed psychologist, and Detective Morris West, her secret lover from the local police force, who have just been assigned the boy's case. As the teen begins telling his diabolical tale of a local weekend vacation gone horribly wrong, it becomes clear that nothing is ever what it seems when a very troubled substitute teacher, with a webbed past of nightmares, emerges as the center of the proceedings. What keys does she hold to the nearly phantasmic events surrounding the area for the last several years?
Perhaps some secrets are better left in...the North Woods.
There is currently a crowd funding campaign taking place over on Indiegogo for the project. You can also keep up with the deets for “North Woods” by liking them on Facebook, and following the progress on Twitter. Also check out the teaser trailer for “North Woods” below the sneak peek clip.
