Dagger Woods pays homage to horror movie posters and VHS covers from the 70s. Long gone are the days when all you needed was a skull with the movie title to freak people out. I remember seeing VHS covers for Halloween, Rosemary’s Baby and Evil Dead 2 when I was little and desperately wanted to see these crazy movies, because if the cover was enough to scare me the movie must be insane.
Dagger Woods is an actual place in rural Nova Scotia. Upon seeing the road sign for the first time I immediately thought “That sounds like the scariest place on earth.” It would make a very appropriate horror movie title.
