First Poster For Irish Folk Horror The Woods Unveiled

Short film and music video prodigy Corin Hardy is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut feature The Woods at Roger Corman's old studio in Galway, so now seems like a good time to debut the film's first poster. The Irish folk horror stars Joseph Mawle (Game Of Thrones) and Bojana Novakovic (Edge Of Darkness), with Michael McElhatton (Shadow Dancer), Michael Smiley (A Field In England, Spaced), and several woodland creatures you'd probably rather not encounter on a dark night.

The film was previously known as The Good People, and that original title refers to dark fairy-folk The Hallow, feared and respected by locals, and not averse to stealing the odd child to bolster their numbers. Tree surgeon Mawle is given a gig in their woods, and moves his family from the city for a spot of slower-paced life in the fresh air. But of course, in the end they don't have so relaxing a time after all...

Still in production, The Woods will nevertheless have a presence at Cannes, so hopefully some deals and release dates are in the offing. **Empire **was on set, so keep an eye on future issues for more.
