Hidden in the Woods director to take on Dracula in new horror ‘Garip’


Patricio Valladares, the Chilean director behind Hidden in the Woods (above), it’s English language remake and the upcoming Downhill, is a director not afraid to test his audiences thresh-holds when it comes to the nasty stuff.

He has now been confirmed as director of Garip, formerly known as Foe, and Screen Daily had all the details.

Per Screen Daily:

The Chilean genre filmmaker has reunited with his Downhill co-writer Barry Keating and is moving ahead with the Turkey-set horror film.

Valladares expects to commence shooting in Istanbul at the end of the month on Garip, which until this week had been known as Foe.

The story follows a group of people who uncover a tomb at Tokat Castle that according to legend was the site of Count Dracula’s incarceration.

Gianni Capaldi, Natalie Burn of The Expendables 3, Guillermo Ivan, Katrin Assi and Larry Wade Carrell star.

Barry Keating based his screenplay on a story by Loris Curci, who produces alongside Baris Abacigil and Fikret So?anci.

Istanbul-based production and services company FBR Productions is an investor in Garip and produces.

Valladares wrapped production on Tuesday on the micro-budget survival thriller Downhill

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
