Amenábar returns to the genre stomping grounds of “Abre Los Ojos” (remade into “Vanilla Sky”) and “The Others” in this thriller about a detective (Hawke) whose investigation of a young girl’s (Watson) gravely serious accusations against her father (David Dencik) unearths a powerfully scary conspiracy. It’s set in Minnesota, 1990.
Hawke’s Detective Bruce Kenner is aided by a psychologist (David Thewlis) who performs regression therapy on the father, also uncovering more unhappy memories.
On board the creative team are “Pacific Rim” production designer Carol Spier, “The Last Days” DP Daniel Aranyo and VFX supervisor Felix Berges (“The Impossible”).
“Regression” doesn’t hit US theaters until August 28th, 2015 via TWC-Dimension.
