These days, by the time we watch most movies, we’ve likely seen so much footage from preview trailers we’ve already worked them out in our heads. Especially with blockbusters like Marvel films, or even something like Chappie, there are few secrets left to play out in the darkness of a theater. So, it’s especially cool when we get an intriguing trailer like Nina Forever, all expressive faces and horrifyingly creepy sound effects. Unlike the usual overdone, jam-packed fare, this trailer’s sparseness only entices more.
A word of caution: You’re better off not searching up further descriptions for Ben and Chris Blaine’s feature directorial debut, set to premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival. The horror/comedy stars Utopia’s Fiona O’Shaughnessy, Abigail Hardinham (Broadchurch, The Sparticle Mystery, Freak), Cian Barry (Titanic, Doctors, Shameless). and David Troughton (The Cafe, Jericho, Foyle’s War).
