ARTWORK AND TEASER FROM WE ARE STILL HERE
Ever since its trailer debut at SXSW, I've been hearing some postive things from Ted Geoghegan's debut horror film We Are Still Here.
I normally don't get too excited from trailers much anymore, but I have to admit, this first teaser got my attention. It really feels like one of those throwback horrors that take the slowburn route, the type of film I really love.
After the death of their college age son, Anne and Paul Sacchetti (Barbara Crampton and Andrew Sensenig) relocate to the snowswept New England hamlet of Aylesbury, a sleepy village where all is most certainly not as it seems. When strange sounds and eerie feelings convince Anne that her son's spirit is still with them, they invite an eccentric, New Age couple (Larry Fessenden and Lisa Marie) to help them get to the bottom of the mystery.
They discover that not only are the house's first residents, the vengeful Dagmar family, still there - but so is an ancient power. A primal darkness slumbers under the old home, waking up every thirty years and demanding the fresh blood of a new family.
An altogether new take on the haunted house genre that deftly mixes human drama and comedy, We Are Still Here is a couple's terrifying journey through darkness and loss set against the freezing New England winter.
I'm trying to keep my expectations in check, but this one looks like it could be a creepfest. What do you think?
