Exclusive Trailer Premiere: Vincent D'Onofrio's Don't Go In The Woods

You know Vincent D'Onofrio as an actor from Law & Order: Criminal Intent, or maybe going back to Men in Black or Full Metal Jacket, but now it's time to meet him as a director. With Don't Go In The Woods, a movie described as a musical/horror hybrid, D'Onofrio steps behind the camera for the first time as a feature director. For your first look at the film, which premieres on video on demand on December 26 and in theaters in New York and Los Angeles in January, check out the film's exclusive trailer below.

As you can tell, this isn't really your average story of dumb kids getting chopped up in the woods, with a lot more music-- and a lot more of a meta attitude-- to go along with the usual spooky visuals and high-pitched screams. Here's the film's official synopsis if you want to know more.

Don't Go in the Woods is sound advice, especially when there's a killer on the loose. First-time director Vincent D'Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent") explores love, greed and ruthlessness in this twisted musical/horror hybrid, telling the story of a young band who heads to the woods to get away from their everyday lives in order to focus on writing new songs. Hoping to walk away from the trip with new tunes that will score them their big break, they instead find themselves in the middle of a nightmare beyond comprehension.

If you're in the mood for something a little more along the lines of Halloween scares in the middle of the holiday season, Don't Go In The Woods will show up on your video on-demand program just as the Christmas hangover starts to kick in. It'll probably beat the latest re-run of A Christmas Story, that's for sure.
