No one dares venture into the woods that surround an idyllic village. When one curious citizen plans to step beyond the boundaries of the town, his bold move threatens to change the village forever.
Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan assembles an all-star cast, including Joaquin Phoenix and Sigourney Weaver, Adrien Brody, William Hurt and Bryce Dallas Howard, to bring the thrilling tale of an isolated village confronting the astonishing truth that lies just outside its borders. At first glance, this village seems picture perfect, but this close-knit community lives with the frightening knowledge that creatures reside in the surrounding woods. The evil and foreboding force is so unnerving that none dare venture beyond the borders of the village and into the woods. But when curious, headstrong Lucious Hunt plans to step beyond the boundaries of the town and into the unknown, his bold move threatens to forever change the future of the village.
