Hidden In The Woods Remake Trailer Online
Michael Biehn gets his grindhouse on

05 November 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Patricio Valladares

Michael Biehn and his Blanc Biehn production company have been working on their remake of the Chilean horror Hidden In The Woods for some time now, and here, on its way to the American Film Market, is the first trailer. Biehn himself stars, and he's joined by William Forsythe, Electra Avellan, Jeannine Kaspar, MMA fighter Krxysztof Soszynski and Jennifer "Mrs Biehn" Blanc.

The original Hidden In The Woods (which got a poisonous response at last year's FrightFest) is a slice of reprehensible gonzo sleaze, involving two sisters, their monstrous inbred brother, and their brutally abusive father. From the trailer, that set-up looks to have been toned-down, with the brother at least a normal kid who hasn't been sired by his own grandfather. First time around, the youngsters turned to cannibalism when left to fend for themselves following Dad's arrest, but that aspect would also appear to have been dropped.

What remains, however, is the basic premise of the girls' uncle and his drug cartel buddies turning up looking for their missing gear in Dad's absence, followed by the spanner in the works of Dad's jailbreak and violent return. So we seem to have a reined-in version of the original, but what remains still looks like something of an ordeal...

Original director Patricio Valladares has returned to do it all again, and if you're wondering why Biehn would want to play a role as revolting as he does here, it seems to be part of his re-styling himself post-Planet Terror as something of a grindhouse auteur. He partnered with his Divide director Xavier Gens on a proposed three-film deal beginning with The Farm, and currently has around half a dozen other Blanc Biehn horror joints in the works.

Release dates, presumably, will start emerging after the AFM.
