Actor Vincent D’Onofrio screened his directorial debut movie, a slasher musical called Don’t Go in the Woods during the closing weekend of the 2010 Sarasota Film Festival April 16 and 17 in Sarasota, Fla. Following each screening, D’Onofrio answered audience questions regarding the horror film.

Synopsis of Don’t Go in the Woods

An indie rock band of five young men heads into the woods for a weekend of creative inspiration away from modern distractions. New songs are sung and written but female groupies crash the creative jam session causing distraction. In traditional slasher movie style, characters begin disappearing and are violently killed by a crazed murderer. Unlike a traditional horror film, Don't Go in the Woods is a musical with scenes of characters singing while being murdered. The film oozes with thrills and a dark sense of humor complemented by a solid rock soundtrack. The end's twist left filmgoers asking, "Who was the murderer?"

What’s Next for Don’t Go in the Woods

Vincent D’Onofrio is confident the horror flick will be distributed in movie theaters. He told the audience following Saturday's screening, he has "Made a deal with Jason Blum who put out Paranormal Activity…he really liked it and thinks he can get it out there."
