The World International Film Festival Montreal), Seán Breathnach’s directorial debut Beyond the Woods is making its way to UK and North American DVD and VOD courtesy of Left Films.
The Irish production is said to echo the atmosphere and chills of other recent Irish horrors The Hallow and The Canal.
Seven friends meet up in the Irish countryside for a secluded weekend getaway but unfortunately for them, a fiery sinkhole has opened up in the mountains nearby. It’s burning hot, spewing out sulphur and casting a hellish stench over the local area. Determined to make the most of the weekend, the group decide not to let the noxious atmosphere get to them…but it’s getting worse. Soon the troubling hallucinations begin as an ancient evil starts to take hold. What malevolent force has crawled from the sinkhole and will any of them survive the weekend?
Beyond the Woods stars John Ryan Howard, Claire J. Loy, Ross Mac Mahon and Mark Lawrence. It lands on Digital on February 5th, and DVD February 19th.
