Trailer Unveiled for They Remain as It Heads to the H.P. Lovecraft Film Fest

Philip Gelatt’s They Remain is having its World Premiere at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival this week in Portland, Oregon, which means now is the perfect time to debut the film’s trailer! Later this fall it’s heading out on a theatrical run via Paladin so stay tuned for updates.

Written and directed by Philip Gelatt (The Bleeding House), They Remain stars William Jackson Harper and Rebecca Henderson. The film’s third “star” is cinematographer Sean Kirby, whose hallucinatory images contribute immeasurably to its disorienting, disturbing mood.

The Lovecraft Fest screening is October 7th – click here for more info and tickets.

Based on the 2010 short story “-30-” by award-winning author Laird Barron, They Remain explores the evolving relationship between Keith and Jessica (Harper and Henderson), two scientists who are employed by a vast, impersonal corporation to investigate an unspeakable horror that took place at the remote encampment of a mysterious cult. Working and living in a state-of-the-art, high-tech environment that is completely at odds with their surroundings, they spend their days gathering physical evidence, analyzing it, and reporting on their findings.

The intensity of their work, and their extreme isolation, bring the pair closer. But when Jessica discovers a mysterious artifact of unknown origin, the dynamic between them changes: Secrets are kept, sexual tensions arise, and paranoia sets in. Keith begins to have visions and is unable to distinguish whether they are nightmares or hauntings. Having lost all sense of what is real and what is imagined, all he knows is that the horror he and Jessica have been sent to uncover—a horror that could be biological, psychological, or supernatural— now threatens his very survival.
