Director Romain Basset is chomping at the bit to get the word out on his debut feature film, Fever. And we were lucky enough to get you a look at the teaser poster and a thorough synopsis of what seems like a pretty trippy film. Morphing in and out of dream states, Fever definitely sounds like a psychological mind-fuck so we’ll certainly be listening for any additional info in the future.
As for right now, take a look at the teaser poster below. It’s got a nice reminiscent feel of The Frighteners to it. It gives eager viewers just enough of a tickle to keep them interested and waiting for the next still or clip the filmmakers drop.
Fever currently stars Catriona MacColl with more cast members to be announced as work progresses. The script was written by Romain Basset and Karim Cheriguene (who’s also currently working on a script for one of Xavier Gens’ new projects – nice!).
Read on for a little info about what you can expect from the surely surreal film Fever.
Jessica has never dreamed in her life but has had regular nightmares of which the meaning has escaped her. This peculiarity has led her to conduct studies which specialized in psychophysiology of dreams and to follow a therapy with Sean, her mentor and boyfriend, to try and understand the origins of her nightmares.
Following the death of her maternal grandmother whom she scarcely knew, Jessica must return reluctantly to the family home. Upon her arrival, she discovers that her late grandmother is resting in the adjoining room to her own during the wake…
After a rough first night made restless by a strange nightmare in which she meets her dead grandmother, Jessica suddenly becomes ill. Stuck in her bed with a high fever, the young woman decides to use her lethargic state to experience lucid dreams and thus try to take control of her nightmares. Henceforth, on the advice of Sean, Jessica needs to breathe a little bit of ether when a crisis arises to sink deeper into the other world.
Jessica will begin to evolve in a nightmarish world, and gradually developing capabilities as a lucid dreamer, she will investigate to discover the evil that gnaws her and haunts the family house…
