I've never heard of Dan Berk or Robert Olsen, and before today, I hadn't heard anything about Body, the film they co-wrote and directed together. So when the film's official trailer showed up on my doorstep, I wasn't terribly excited (fun fact: when you're a film blogger, you will receive upwards of 5,000 new movie trailers in your inbox every day!). Then I watched said trailer, and...well, see if you have the same response I did:
This looks like it could be great, right? I'm really digging the film's vibe, I like that ya boi Larry Fessenden's involved, and I'm definitely intrigued by the premise, which is summed up nicely in the email we received along with the trailer:
A darkly funny and twisted journey taking place entirely on one unforgettable Christmas Eve, BODY revolves around a trio of college co-eds whose dalliance with breaking-and-entering goes horribly awry. Sneaking off to a secluded mansion to party, the young girls are faced with dire choices after they unexpectedly encounter the property’s groundskeeper.
Following a freak accident, the girls find themselves entangled in a Hitchcockian nightmare steeped in tension, suspicion, double-crossing, and murder, where no one is to be trusted and a new twist lies around every corner.
Despite the bloody poster, Body looks to be more psychological thriller than horror film, and I'm alright with that, too. I'll be seeking this one out when it arrives in December (it'll hit select theaters on December 11th before arriving VOD on the 29th); this looks like perfect Christmastime viewing material.
What do you guys think? Into it?
