Any film starring Danny Trejo is always worth a look and the slasher looking Murder In the Woods is winning rave reviews from critics and now us horror fans have our first glimpse of what’s in store thanks to the recently released trailer.
Here is the official synopsis and trailer.
MURDER IN THE WOODS is centered on a group of college friends who plan a getaway to celebrate a birthday party at a desolate cabin in the woods. Against his grandmother’s (Soledad St. Hilaire) demands, Jesse (José Julián), a loner-type decides to go on a trip with his friends. He is immediately smitten with Fernanda (Jeanette Samano), a sweet girl from Chicago whom he hasn’t seen in years. She is in town visiting her loudmouth cousin, Chelsea (Chelsea Rendon), who is ready to celebrate her birthday and plans to let loose with her boyfriend Gabe (Jordan Diambrini). Tagging along at the last second are Jule (Kade Wise), the class clown pothead, and the very out-of-his-league Celeste (Catherine Toribio). Soon after arriving to the mysterious cabin in the woods, the group of teens discover the dark secret it holds, which forces them to fight for their lives.
MURDER IN THE WOODS – directed by Luis Iga Garza and starring Danny Trejo, José Julián, Jeanette Samano, and Chelsea Rendon – will stalk drive-in and theaters August 14th, and then digital and VOD September 18th!
