TIFF 2011: Trailer and One-Sheet Debut - 388 Arletta Avenue
In celebration of the film's premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival in September, a new trailer and one-sheet for 388 Arletta Avenue : ) have debuted online; and we have every pixel of them for you right here!
Director Randall Cole (Real Time, 19 Months) is at the helm of 388 Arletta Avenue : ). Nick Stahl (Sin City, "Carnivale", Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Mirrors 2), Mia Kirshner ("The Vampire Diaries," "The L Word," The Black Dahlia), and Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Idle Hands) star; and Steve Hoban (Splice, Ginger Snaps) and Mark Smith (The Spine) are producing.
Shot from the point of view of hidden cameras, the film follows a thirty-something couple, James and Amy Deakin, as they are secretly videotaped 24/7 by a mysterious stalker in their home, on the streets, and at their workplace. The stalker uses information gleaned from the footage to subtly manipulate the unsuspecting couple, and cracks in their relationship surface. When Amy suddenly vanishes, James is not sure whether she has been abducted or has simply left him. As the acts of the tormentor become more twisted and violent, James desperately tries to figure out who is behind the terror in order to save his wife. But it seems the stalker is always one move ahead...
"388 Arletta Avenue : ) is a wickedly smart mystery-thriller," says executive producer Vincenzo Natali. "And it's a story that could not have existed until recently, thanks to the astonishing and invasive technology that is now widely available. The fact that it is possible makes it truly terrifying."
"388 Arletta Avenue : ) plays with the notion that if you could scratch to beneath the surface of what most supposedly ordinary people present to the world, and even to themselves, you would find very interesting and possibly very dark things," says Randall Cole. "If exploited, some of those things could even result in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, as it does for our lead character.
