Patricio Valladares’ Chilean horror flick, Hidden in the Woods, looks as raw as you like, I am expecting something truly brutal here which will hopefully keep us glued to our screens. If you are also looking forward to this one, we have just got word of some distribution news courtesy of Variety.
According to the site, Artsploitation Films has acquired the U.S. rights to Hidden in the Woods, with a release date expected some time in 2013, and that’s just about all we have for you regarding that acquisition, so hopefully they will do the film justice.
This raw slice of demented energy. Inspired by true events, is the terrifying story of two sisters raised in forest isolation and subjected to torments from their abusive drug dealer father. When they finally report him, he chainsaws the two investigating cops to death and is jailed before he can tell psychotic drug lord Costello the exact location of his remaining stash. So Costello sends violent henchmen to find the missing merchandise hidden somewhere in the woods. Reaching heights of deranged frenzy unlike anything seen before, director Patricio Valladares is yet another exciting talent to emerge from the current hotbed of South American horror.”
