Is THE WOODS One Of The “Scariest Movies Ever Made?”

We’ve heard very little about the mysterious Lionsgate project titled THE WOODS, which reteams director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett, the duo responsible for THE GUEST, YOU’RE NEXT and A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE. But any movie with those two involved, consider us in. Finally, an intriguing teaser (and we do mean tease!) has been unleashed this morning. And the reviews embedded within the teaser are tremendously encouraging. Bloody-Disgusting is calling it “one of the scariest movies ever made.” Which makes us even more excited to see this thing. Check out the trailer:

Rumor had it for a while there that this might be a modern update of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and considering it’s at Lionsgate, it wasn’t much of a stretch to believe that. But getting this glimpse definitely makes it feel like it is its own thing. And again, Wingard and Barrett have delivered completely different types of genre movies every time out, so here’s hoping this one becomes this Halloween season’s perfect kick-off. THE WOODS arrives in theaters on September 16th.
