Hybrid Slasher-Musical Co-Written By Veteran Singer-Songwriter Sam Bisbee
May 14, 2012 – New York, New York – DON’T GO IN THE WOODS. Sound advice, especially when there’s a killer on the loose. Veteran film and television actor Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, Law & Order: Criminal Intent) explores love, greed and ruthlessness in his directorial debut: a twisted musical/horror hybrid film, featuring original music by acclaimed singer-songwriter Sam Bisbee.
DON’T GO IN THE WOODS is the story of an indie rock band who takes a weekend getaway from their everyday lives to focus on writing new songs. Hoping to return from their trip with tunes that will score them their first big break, the band instead finds themselves in a nightmare beyond comprehension. The film – starring a gifted ensemble cast of mostly non-actor musicians – cleverly walks an unusual line, maintaining genuine suspense alongside a sinister sense of dread as it explores the lengths to which people will go in order to make their ambitions a reality.
D’Onofrio on the film’s unusual hybrid genre: “We have grown accustomed to referring to the film as a ‘slasher-musical.’ Once meets Friday the 13th. At times, the music is directly involved in the story that’s playing out on the film. Other times, it’s there to just scream out.”
Bo Boddie stars as bandleader Carson. A Grammy Award winner for his engineering work on Norman Brown’s record, Just Chillin’, Boddie is currently working with Merge artist Imperial Teen, as well as playing with and producing Patty Schemel’s (Hole) new band, Psychic Friend. The cast also includes: Gwynn Galitzer, Jorgen Jorgensen, Tim Lajcik, Soomin Lee, Kate O’Malley, Matt Sbeglia, Casey Smith, Nick Thorp, Ali Tobia and Cassandra Walker, with a cameo appearance by Eric Bogosian.
Story by Vincent D’Onofrio; screenplay by Sam Bisbee and Joe Vinciguerra; songs by Sam Bisbee; Original score by Sam Bisbee and Bo Boddie; Michael J. Latino, cinematography; Jennifer Lee, editor; Ken Christmas and Erika Hampson, producers; Sam Bisbee and Vinciguerra, executive producers.
