‘Hidden in the Woods’ to Artsploitation

Distrib plans 2013 release for Chilean horror film

Artsploitation Films has U.S. rights to Chilean horror film “Hidden in the Woods” for a 2013 release.

Deal was closed at the recently concluded Ventana Sur Film Market in Buenos Aires. The film had its world premiere at Fantasia Fest in Montreal earlier this year and also screened at FrightFest.

Patricio Valladares directed from a script he co-wrote with Andrea Calvaletto. Story is set in the woods of an Appalachian-like area of Chile and follows two sisters, portrayed by Siboney Lo and Carolina Escobar, who escape from their sexually abusive father and find existence on the run just as perilous. Deal was negotiated by Patrick Ewald of Epic Pictures and Jennifer Arndt-Johns on behalf of Artsploitation.
