High Octane Pictures has announced their latest suspense horror film, Rootwood, will be arriving on DVD and digital platforms next month.
Two college students are hosts of a popular podcast devoted to creepy urban legends and scary stories. They attract the attention of a Hollywood producer, who wants their assistance in filming a new documentary based on the legend of a figure called The Wooden Devil. So they and the film crew head into the woods where the monster is rumored to dwell….and nothing happens.
Okay, a lot happens. It soon becomes clear the Wooden Devil is real and he’s after his latest victims. With this kind of premise, you might assume this is a found footage movie in the Blair Witch vein, but it has a bit of a higher budget than that.
Rootwood stars Tyler Gallant (Alpha Wolf), Elissa Dowling (Death House), Sarah French (The Amityville Murders), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Tiffani Fest (Circus of the Dead) and Brandon Rhea (Fearless). It was directed by Marcel Walz based on a script by Mario von Czapiewski.
Check out Rootwood when it releases April 7, from High Octane Pictures.
ROOTWOOD follows two students who host ‘The Spooky Hour’, a podcast about paranormal phenomena and urban legends. When they are hired by a Hollywood film producer to shoot a horror documentary about the curse of The Wooden Devil, they smell their chance to become famous. Together, with their friend, they enter Rootwood Forest and investigate the area to find out the truth about The Wooden Devil and his victims.
