For my money Billy Burke as Bella’s dad was the best thing in all of Twilight. Burke, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”‘s Emma Caulfield, busty model/actress Kelly Brook (soon to be eaten alive in Piranha 3D), and film veteran Elliot Gould co-star in Shadow Play, a new thriller in the vein of Hitchcock and The Shining about a cleaning man whose sanity begins to unravel as he works to clean up a sprawling mansion.
“Shadow Play depicts the story of Cole Hindin, an over-worked and over-medicated cleaning service employee. He finds himself faced with the daunting task of single-handedly servicing a sprawling mansion over the course of a single night. He is plagued by horrific hallucinations, a culmination of many events. He witnessed a gruesome murder-suicide a year earlier, is badly bruised by memories of a failed marriage, and is strung out on a cocktail of prescription medication. With not nearly enough sleep, Cole struggles to maintain his sanity throughout the night while dealing with Henry, the deranged homeowner.”
Directed by “Project Greenlight” finalist Nick Simon and starring Mark Kelly, who recently appeared on a couple episodes of “Mad Men” and co-stars in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Prototype I wrote about a week or so ago, Shadow Play is one of the many films playing at the American Film Market this weekend. A somewhat vague teaser trailer can be viewed below.
