HIDDEN IN THE WOODS is being described everywhere as one of the most brutal exploitation films to come along in some time. Facing incredible controversy, the film includes such gems as extreme violence, sexual abuse, and cannibalism to name just a few. And now, thanks to Artsploitation Films, this Latin American grindhouse flick is going to finally see VOD & DVD release here in the US on September 17th. The disc will include a behind-the-scenes featurette, an interview with director Patricio Valladares, and an eight page collector’s booklet.
Deep in the Chilean countryside, Ana and Anny live with their deformed brother and are subject to their father’s perverse and sadistic whims. After a dispute with the police leaves a wake of death and mutilation, they flee and find refuge in a remote cabin hidden from society. Meanwhile, a crime lord, convinced they have stolen the massive stash of drugs their father was hiding, sends a violent pack of thugs to find them. Based on a bizarre true story and not for the faint of heart, Hidden in the Woods (currently being remade in the U.S.) features extreme violence, prostitution, sexual assault, buckets of blood and even cannibalism.
