GIRL IN WOODS stars Juliet Reeves, ANGEL’s Charisma Carpenter, Jeremy London, Lee Perkins and John Still. Here’s the synopsis: “The death of her fiancé [London] leaves Grace [Reeves] abandoned in a harsh mountain wilderness. Struggling against the elements and fighting off starvation, the fragile shell of her sanity begins to crack. Soon her struggle worsens when she notices a dark figure stalking her, watching her every step. Through memories of her mother [Carpenter] and father [Perkins], Grace finds a long-forgotten truth about herself. It is this, long hidden away, that might lead her to safety, or down a path of horror beyond anything she could comprehend.”

“GIRL IN WOODS was a passion project for us,” Benson says. “The idea of doing an origin story to what would be a slasher film interested me, and being able to wrap that inside of a psychological thriller seemed to add a level of storytelling that, as a horror fan, I felt would be welcomed. This film is the birth of an urban legend—one of a mysterious savage that is believed to be killing people in the mountains. I want audiences to be disturbed by what is happening to Grace, and at the end understand the legacy these events leave behind.” By Michael Gingold- Fangoria
