The time is now for new voices in the horror/thriller genre. Across the past year, Jennifer Kent (“The Babadook“), Adam Wingard (“The Guest“), and David Robert Mitchell (“It Follows“) have unveiled distinct, acclaimed films that have proved there is still plenty of room left for original, hair-raising movies. And at the Slamdance Film Festival, co-directors Dan Berk and Robert Olsen are hoping they too will join those filmmakers with “Body.”
Starring Helen Rogers, Alexandra Turshen, Lauren Molina, and Larry Fessenden, the wintry thriller kicks off with a killing and turns the screws from there. Here’s the official synopsis: After three twenty-something girls break into a mansion and inadvertently murder the groundskeeper, they slowly self-destruct as they decide what to do with the dead body in the living room. And as you’ll see from this eerie teaser, “Body” promises a spine-tingling atmosphere and some carefully calibrated suspense.
“Body” will have its first screening at Slamdance on Sunday, January 25th at 10:30 PM at the Treasure Mountain Inn in the Ballroom. Check out the trailer below along with images from the film and the poster.
