You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to produce a great horror movie. Case in point: The trailer for Trespassers looks like a spiritual sequel to The Strangers. Still, this tale of masked intruders imposing on a group of vacationing 20-somethings looks fantastic! It also features Fairuza Balk, the actress who played Nancy in The Craft!
Check out the trailer embedded at the top of the article; read the synopsis below.
Two couples, each working through relationship issues, rent a gorgeous house in the desert for a sex- and drug-fueled escape from reality. Sarah (Angela Trimbur) and Estelle (Janel Parrish) are longtime best friends looking forward to reconnecting after a period apart; their boyfriends, Joseph (Zach Avery) and Victor (Jonathan Howard), however, are immediately wary of one another. As tensions escalate over the course of a debaucherous night, things take an unexpected turn when a woman (Fairuza Balk) claiming to be a neighbor with car trouble shows up at the door. She seems harmless enough…or so they think. As the twists and turns pile up so does the body count in this stylish, blood- and neon-soaked thriller which hits with the furious force of a machete to the skull.
Trespassers is directed by Orson Oblowitz from a screenplay penned by Corey Deshon. The film will scream in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles beginning July 12th; it’ll also be available On Demand the same date.
