So, here’s the trailer for Fading of the Cries, a movie I’d never even heard of until about five minutes ago, even though the trailer’s been floating around for a bit now. The plot synopsis:
In “Fading of the Cries,” a young man armed with a deadly sword saves a teenage girl named Sarah from a malevolent evil that has begun plaguing a small farmland town, while in search of an ancient necklace that had belonged to Sarah’s uncle. The two set out to get to Sarah’s home safely, running through streets, fields, churches and underground tunnels, while being pursued by hordes of demonic creatures.
The young man is played by newcomer Jordan Matthews, and Sarah is played by Hallee Hirsh, who’s done a bunch of TV guest stints and not much else. Thomas Ian Nicholas (best known as Kevin Myers in the American Pie series) plays the uncle, and Brad Dourif, in full-on Grima Wormtongue mode, plays Mathias, the big bad. It’s written and directed by Brian Metcalf, in his full-length feature debut. I don’t know what it’s going to be rated, but from the looks of the trailer, lots of people get cut up by that sword. Lots of people. And I likes me some cuttin’. There are also some decently creepy creature effects that are rather Guillermo Del Toro-esque, which I approve of.
It may end up being crap, but I have to admit that the trailer kind of works for me, and the picture in the header? Freaks me the fuck out. Your thoughts?
