There was a time when the cover art or one-sheet alone for a movie was enough to make me see it. This is one of those times. In fact, this is one of the few times said artwork makes us a bit squirmy. Dig it!
Below you’ll find a trailer, plot crunch, and the DVD artwork from the upcoming Aussie horror flick The Clinic from director James Rabbitt.
Look for the flick in stores on August 9th from the delightfully maniacal loonies over at Image Entertainment.
On Christmas Eve, 1979, Cameron (Andy Whitfield, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”) and his pregnant wife Beth (Tabrett Bethell, “Legend of the Seeker”) have decided to take a break from their road trip through the Australian Outback, stopping for the night at a desolate motel. But something diabolical is about to happen: in the dead of night Beth is abducted from their room to wake up in an ice-filled bathtub…with her baby gone! She finds herself held captive in a clinic of the cruelest kind: where mothers that are near birth are given C-sections…and not by choice.
As Cameron frantically searches for his wife, some of the women imprisoned at the clinic stay to search for their stolen children…while others try to escape by any means possible.
Inspired by true events, The Clinic explores a new mother’s unspeakable fear and a father’s desperation. In the tradition of Wolf Creek, this is a thriller that preys on the mind as it asks terrible questions: why were the mothers kept alive – why were their babies taken? What are they being kept for?
