The Woods

Type: New Blu-Ray

Gothic chills abound in the thriller The Woods directed by Lucky McKee (May) from a screenplay written by David Ross (The Babysitters). Amidst the splendor of rural New England sits Falburn Academy, a boarding school for young, impressionable and in some cases, troubled girls. Isolated from the outside world, Falburn sits near the woods - a sinister cluster of trees that appears to act as a protective wall. Heather Fasulo (Agnes Brucker, The Aviator) is the school's newest student. After setting fire to a forest, rebellious Heather is sent to Falburn to provide her with a sense of stability. Heather's increasing nightmares prove to be more than homesickness when she discovers that the woods hold a chilling and terrifying secret. The Woods co-stars Academy Award-nominee Patricia Clarkson (Pieces of April) as Falburn's dean, Ms. Traverse; Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) as Heather's father; Lauren Birkell (The Babysitters) as friend and schoolmate Marcy; and Rachel Nichols (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) as the bullying student, Samantha Wise.
