One film being shown at this year’s Film 4 FrightFest that caught our attention is Rupert Glasson’s debut feature, Coffin Rock, described as “a skillfully woven tale of palpable unease and gripping suspense.” And if the teaser trailer is any indication, that does indeed seem to be an apt description.
Here’s the full synopsis: In the small coastal town of Coffin Rock, Rob and Jess live an almost idyllic life, their relationship marred only by their inability to have children. In a weak moment Jess sleeps with a stranger and later learns she’s pregnant. But the shocking truth is Evan targeted her the moment she walked into the fertility clinic where he worked. Now Jess’ guilt turns to full-blown horror as Evan begins a petrifying transformation from menacing stalker to unhinged psychopath.
The Aussie film shares a producer with Wolf Creek (review here) and Rogue (review here), David Lightfoot, and Robert Taylor, who plays husband Rob, appeared in Rogue as well. Check it out below, keep an eye on Coffin Rock‘s official site (which we were led to by our reader Nick) as it gets closer to the Fest, and we’ll keep you posted on future updates from Bankside Films, the international distributor.
