Bayview Entertainment announced this past week that the latest addition to its popular “HNN Presents” line of domestic and international horror films — in association with Horrornews.net — will be heading to the DVD marketplace on Nov. 17.
From Chile, we have writer/director Lucio A. Rojas’ atmospheric chiller, HNN Presents: The Wicked Woods.
Lovers, Ruben (Iñigo Urrutia — El Derechazo, Invierno, Dios Me Libre) and Laura (Catherine Mazoyer — Apio Verde, Marcelo: La Mafia y La Estafa, Rojo: La Película) arrive at an idyllic cabin in a forested area of Chile. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city … a chance for some peace and quiet; time together.
It is, however, not as it seems. Ruben is married and has children. He may love and care for Laura, but, well, it’s complicated. Laura, on the other hand, no longer wants to remain at home (for reasons that will become clear).
Soon, and this is where filmmaker Lucio A. Rojas (Zombie Dawn, Trauma) toys with us, we see things moving in the woods. The music takes on an ominous tone … the troubles between Laura and Ruben intensify, and so the music.
The images increase … are they real? Is the man in what appears to be hunter’s gear, real? Are the children that appear, real? They come … they disappear.
Rojas continues to ratch-things up … the music, being a useful participant in the ever-building terror that has descended upon these otherwise peaceful and tranquil woods.
HNN Presents: The Wicked Woods is in Spanish with English subtitles.
