Writer/director Tom Paton's feature debut PANDORICA just hit VOD and DVD a week ago, and now we already have the trailer for his second feature, the wilderness monster movie REDWOOD. This trailer surprised me by revealing a threat that I was not expecting at all.

The synopsis goes like this: 

After some bad news back at home, musician Josh and his girlfriend Beth head out to a secluded national park in search of some clarity on the situation they’ll face when they return. But the couple get more than they bargained for when they ignore the advice of Park Rangers and venture off the trail, coming face to face with The Redwood’s legendary wildlife. REDWOOD brings a fresh spin to a well worn mythology to create an edge of your seat horror movie that will shred your nerves and have you thinking twice about going camping again. “Find yourself, before they find you…”

So the characters run into "legendary wildlife" that is a version of some kind of creature we've seen before. I was thinking werewolves or sasquatch, but the trailer quickly reveals that Josh and Beth are actually dealing with forest-dwelling vampires.

At least it appears that they'll have help from someone who's familiar with things like this – a character played by Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Nicholas Brendon.

Brendon's REDWOOD co-stars include Mike Beckingham, Tatjana Nardone, Muzz Khan, Jessica Jane Stafford, and Luke D'Silva.

REDWOOD is expected to be released sometime in 2017.
