I’d very much like for this movie to be good. It’s got a pretty good cast — Rose Byrne, Patrick Wilson, and Barbara Hershey (fresh off of blowing our minds in Black Swan). It’s directed by James Wan, who directed the only decent Saw movie (the first one), but since hasn’t really hit the mark. And the plot is interesting, if fairly routine: A family looks to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further.
The trailer, though… is mixed. It’s very effective in some ways, but it’s so hyperactively edited that it detracts away from the overall impact. Would it kill them to have a shot that lasts more than five seconds?
Anyway, take a gander:
(although… the picture in the header is a little Beetlejuice-ishly silly)
