A Night in the Woods
Director: Richard Parry
Producers: Allan Niblo, James Richardson, Nick Love
Drama, 85 mins
This British ‘found footage’ horror, set in the depths of Dartmoor, is full of paranoia and sexual tension, as three young hikers discover a dark force at work in the woods.
With its combination of chillingly eerie atmosphere and jump-off-your-seat scares, carefully crafted sound design was central to this film.
We provided all sound post-production services for the feature, which premiered at Fright Fest in 2011, and an M&E version for its international release in 2013.
Brody, his girlfriend Kerry and their friend Leo go hiking in Wistman’s Woods on Dartmoor. When they lose their way, jealousies, sexual tensions and strained relationships come to a head, but as collective paranoia reaches fever pitch it becomes clear that there is a much darker force at work in the ancient eerie surroundings. Who or what is after them? And can any one of them survive a night in the woods?
