She Came from the Woods trailer: 80s-set summer camp horror film is coming to theatres

The horror film She Came from the Woods, set a summer camp in the 1980s, is coming to theatres next month. Cara Buono stars

Director Erik Bloomquist’s horror film She Came from the Woods is set to reach theatres on February 10th – tickets are already available for purchase at RegalAMC, and Harkins – and to help you decide whether or not this is a movie you’d like to check out on the big screen, we have the trailer embedded above. The film stars Cara Buono of Stranger Things – and just like Stranger Things, She Came from the Woods is set in the 1980s. Buono also had a role in the Let the Right One In remake Let Me In, which was set in the ’80s as well. Genre projects keep taking her back to that decade.

Written by Erik Bloomquist and Carson Bloomquist, She Came from the Woods follows the staff of an overnight camp as they conjure an old legend on the last day of the summer of 1987.

Buono is joined in the cast by Clare Foley (Sinister), Spencer List (Bereavement), William Sadler (Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey), Michael Park (who has also been on multiple episodes of Stranger Things), and Tyler Elliot Burke (The Penny Dreadful Picture Show).

The Bloomquists produced She Came from the Woods through their company Mainframe Pictures. The feature is based on a 12 minute short the brothers made in 2017, and you can watch that short at the bottom of this article.

The Bloomquist Brothers released the following statement: “After planting the seed with our short film, we are elated to finally bring this story to full and vivid life. She Came from the Woods is a coming-of-age horror movie rooted in themes of familial legacy, the dangers of groupthink, and the motives behind the stories we tell and the secrets we keep.

I have a soft spot for ’80s horror movies, especially ones that take place at or near a summer camp (Friday the 13th is my favorite franchise, after all), so She Came from the Woods looks like a good time to me. What did you think of the trailer? Will you be watching this movie? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
