Writer-director Raine McCormack (I Shall Visit, He’s Gone) is taking viewers into an isolated town filled with dark secrets this January to witness two people who will have to fight to survive in The Village in the Woods.
In the film, “Deep in the forgotten woods, lies a village, at the center of which stands the old Harbour Inn. This rotten pub is the target of an inheritance fraud by young couple Jason and Nicky. Tempted by promises of easy money, Nicky pretends to be the Inn’s sole heiress. On arrival, they find the villagers welcoming and friendly… perhaps a little too much so. Always there. Always smiling. Always watching. The couple does their best to continue the scam but things start to go very wrong. Their paranoia slowly builds to terror as unsettling and grim events unfold. The Village in the Woods is not all it seems.”
Director Raine McCormack co-wrote the film with John Hoerschmever. Beth Park (Killing All The Flies), Therese Bradley (“Peaky Blinders”), Richard Hope (Poldark (PBS), Broadchurch), Robert Vernon (Final Fantasy Game Franchise), Rebecca Johnson (The Trip), Sidney Kean (Silent Witness, The Fear), Timothy Harker (“Peaky Blinders”), Katie Alexander-Thom (“Game of Thrones”), and Phill Martin (Prometheus, Jack The Giant Slayer) star. McCormack, Justine Dowsing (I Shall Visit), and Brake 3 produce.
The Village in the Woods arrives on VOD, Digital HD, and DVD on January 19, 2021, from 4Digital Media.
