The first teaser trailer for the intense looking Applecart has arrived and on top of looking absolutely gorgeous, it also features a truly stellar cast! The film will be making its world premiere this Friday at Austin’s Fantastic Fest.
You can see the trailer along with the poster and several official stills and behind-the-scenes photos below.
Applecart stars Brea Grant (Beyond the Gates, Rob Zombie’s Halloween II), Sophie Dalah (Satanic), Elise Luthman (Henry Danger), Joshua Hoffman (“Shameless”), and Daniel Roebuck (“The Man in the High Castle”) as well as Barbara Crampton (We Are Still Here, You’re Next) and AJ Bowen (You’re Next). It was directed by Bradford Baruh, who co-wrote the story with Irving Walker.
After James Pollack’s terminal cancer diagnosis leaves the family reeling, his adoring wife Casey is willing to try anything in the search for a cure. Loading up their two teenage kids Jason and Jessica, and Jessica’s best friend Becky Lane, the family treks to a remote cabin in Oregon for some recuperation. The cabin is built on iron-oxide, with alleged healing properties, and Casey is anxious for this alternative treatment to work.
As the family settles into the rustic cabin, a shroud of snow beings to fall, beckoning James outside in the search for firewood. Instead of kindling, James encounters an enigmatic woman passed out in the snow. Bringing her to the cabin for help, the family has no way of knowing that the woman’s presence is the catalyst for a series of events that will change their lives forever.
