Don't Go in the Woods
Directed by
Vincent D'Onofrio

USA / 2010 / 83

Screening Times and Venues:
Emerson Resort MOUNT TREMPER
10/01/2010, 8:00PM
Vincent D'Onofrio's "Don't Go In The Woods" will be screened at the Emerson Resort and Spa's outdoor Catamount Pavilion on the 'edge of the woods.' A Q&A will follow the screening and admittance to the after party featuring the "Don't Go in the Woods" band. Only ticket holders are admitted to the after party.

When a young band goes into the woods to write songs they hope will give them their break, the quiet getaway turns into a nightmare beyond their wildest imaginings. “Don’t Go In The Woods,” the feature-length directorial debut of Vincent D’Onofrio, is a twisted and bizarre musical/horror tale that explores love, greed and ruthlessness, showing the lengths that people will go to in order to make their dreams come true.

Described as “Glee” meets “The Blair Witch Project,” the film cleverly walks an unusual line, always maintaining a sinister and creeping sense of dread as well as a feeling of genuine suspense which haunts the characters from the very beginning. The film displays the musical talents of a gifted ensemble cast, including Matt Sbeglia as Nick, the band’s lead singer, performing songs written by Sam Bisbee, who also stars. Blending music and horror in a highly original way, “Don’t Go in the Woods” ensures that it will captivate and terrify in equal measure. (Jacob Brades)

Vincent D'Onofrio is known as an "actor's actor." The wide variety of roles he has played and the quality of his work have earned him a reputation as a versatile talent. He studied at the Actors Studio and the American Stanislavski Theatre. His debut on stage was in 1984 in the Broadway play "Open Admissions," followed by work in numerous other stage plays. As a film actor, D'Onofrio's career break came when he played a mentally unbalanced recruit in "Full Metal Jacket," directed by the renowned Stanley Kubrick.

In 1996 D'Onofrio garnered critical acclaim along with co-star Renee Zellweger for "The Whole Wide World," which he helped produce.

In 2001 D'Onofrio took the role which has likely given him his greatest public recognition: Det. Robert Goren, the lead character in the TV series "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." Most recently, D"Onofrio acted in the Academy Award winning live action short film "The New Tenants," which will be showing at the 2010 Woodstock FIlm Festival as part of the "Shorts: Twist, Shout" program.
