The latest film from director William Sikora III takes audiences into the mind of a young boy who steps into the woods.
“I set out to bring a short story about a boy’s imagination and how fear can be so controlling that it stops you in your tracks, but at the same time I want audiences to question what is real and what is not.” Sikora said.
The film stars Sikora’s nephew and niece and it was filmed during Christmas vacation on the only snow day.
“Many of the days during my trip home to New Jersey were very cold and windy but the day we filmed was also the only day it snowed and it was not too cold. We were outside for a couple of hours and were finished just as the camera battery died.”
The Woods is inspired from Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things as well as Hitchcocks’s The Birds.
