Comic-Con: The Woods to screen in San Diego

Wingard and Barrett’s previous collaborations include 2011’s terrific home invasion horror-comedyYou’re Next, the segment “Tape 56” of 2012’s V/H/S, and 2014’s similarly entertaining, Dan Stevens-starring The Guest. Wingard will direct Death Note, which is in development at Netflix.
