SUSU Trailer Exudes Both British and J-Horror Vibes

Published

on

A trailer has been released for Susu, a psychological thriller set in England that follows two Chinese friends who are invited to a countryside house to transcribe some Chinese films. Judging by the trailer, it really looks like this film will mix classic British horror with a subtle J-horror atmosphere that melds two different styles of the genre into one fascinating example.

The film will be making its US premiere at the AMC Pacific Place in Seattle, WA on Tuesday, June 5.

Qi’an and Aimo are close friends and students living in London. Having been offered a weekend job as Chinese language translators, they travel to an old English family mansion in the countryside to transcribe the films of a Chinese Kunqu Opera star Susu, who married into the English family. Though the two girls are intrigued by the mansion’s enormous collection of items from the golden age of cinema, Qi’an and Aimo quickly become unsettled by the strange environment and the mansion’s occupants, hoping to get out of there as soon as possible. Their exit is delayed, though, with the arrival of the handsome heir to the house, Benjamin; both girls develop an affection for him, leading to a growing tension between the two friends. But when Aimo goes missing, Qi’an discovers the disturbing secrets that the mansion’s occupants would rather not reveal.

Written and directed by Yixi Sun, Susu stars Zitong Wu, Frederick Szkoda, Steve Edwin, Zhu Lin, and Junjie Mao.
