This coming September,Lionsgate returns to its horror releasing roots when it releases Adam Wingard’s latest film THE WOODS(no relations to Lucky McKee’s film of the same name[which forced M. Night Shyamalan to change the name of his similarly titled film to THE VILLAGE]). Needless to say,it has fallen under the spell the on-line media overhype machine that started with both THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES and has continued onward since upon film after film after film.
It’s apparently the same exact road for fans and critics to slowly walk upon once again without no end in sight,as the overhype machine syndrome has created a burn effect(something that has been popular for the last 56 years) where a certain film,song,or celebrity is mightily overhyped to the moon and back repeatedly until a month or a year later when they’re tossed aside for The Next Big Thing to come along. This publicity strategy has both helped and hurt films(as well as music and celebrities) in overexposing something(or someone) to the point that people eventually grow tired of it,and when it’s tossed aside everyone has forgotten about it by then(after all of the money has been made from it). As much as myself and other people may complain about it,t is as strategy that won’t end anytime soon.
Otherwise,as far as Adam Wingard’s THE WOODS goes,I’ll just wise keep an open mind and just stay fully silent about it until I get to actually the film once it is released,whether or not it actually is “A New Direction In Horror Films !!!”(the quote from Bloody Disgusting’s Brad Miska); isn’t that the same similar thing that the overhype publicity machine also said about THE GALLOW(another film that also quickly came and went[just like every other film]) ?
