A teaser trailer has been released for horror movie Safe Place, the upcoming debut feature from director Nick Hunt.
The film’s synopsis reads thus:
‘When art student Lori Hughes sells a piece at her first show, it seems to be the beginning of a promising career. Better still, the purchaser, Chris Craven, is a wealthy eccentric who invites Lori and her friends back to his rustic lodge for a night of celebration and planning for the future. Unbeknownst to the friends, Chris’ homey façade hides an inner torment – a rage against the world following a senseless tragedy that forever altered him. As the evening wears on and memories of the past begin to consume him, Chris resolves to spare Lori and her friends the same suffering that he’s endured in his life – by ending theirs!’
The trailer, seemingly a snapshot of events midway through the film, sees Lori (Ashley Mary Nunes) putting out a desperate plea for help while the muted screams of unseen suffering echo from off screen. It was shot with cinematography and editing by intrepid genre duo Sophia Cacciola and Michael Epstein (who you may remember from the inaugural STARBURST International Film Festival where their third feature Blood of the Tribades screened), and if the resulting film is as pervasively sinister as the two minutes below, then Safe Place will be something to truly behold.
