Don’t Go in the Woods . . .The Musical

Vincent (Full Metal Jacket) D’Onofrio has directed a new slasher musical, Don’t Go in the Woods.  D’Onofrio co-wrote the film with Sam Bisbee and Joe Vinciguerra.  Don’t Go in the Woods was filmed in 13 days on a budget of $100,000.  The cast is mostly unknowns except for the great Eric (Special Effects, Talk Radio) Bogosian.

The central plot centers around a rock band retreating to a cabin in the woods to write new songs for an upcoming album.  All thoughts of writing stop when a bunch of groupies show up looking for a party.  During the party, band members and groupies begin to vanish one-by-one after a mad slasher crashes the festivities.  Don’t Go in the Woods sounds like a throw back to the rock slashers of the 80’s, but this one will be a full musical and not just concert footage inserted between kills.

As far as I can tell, Don’t Go in the Woods has yet to find a distributor but it has played in some small film festivals.  A soundtrack will be released when the film gets an official release.  D’Onofrio has taken the film on a tour of pubs and coffee houses in New York City.  Under the name George Geronimo Gerkie, D’Onofrio shows up as a fictional singer, plays some country tunes, and then screens footage from Don’t Go in the Woods for the audience.
