Here is a trailer you will appreciate. It is for the upcoming independent film “Blessid.” It won’t flash dozens-of-scenes-per-second from the movie, and it won’t ruin any important plot points. Instead, it is a clip for a distinctive scene from the movie.
“Blessid” is described as a psychological thriller that tip-toes on the edge of horror and after you watch the teaser trailer below, you will agree. Personally, I am loving the feel and style of the film. It’s got the color down just right — a color that gives a nightmarish sense, and a suspenseful feel, that I quite love getting drawn into.
This amazing visual is in part due to them using the startling Red Epic camera, a digital camera that features a 5K sensor capable of capturing 1 to 120 frames per second at full resolution.
Directed by Rob Fitz (who has worked on “Labor Day,” R.I.P.D.” and “Crooked Arrow”), I have a feeling we are going to be in for an enthralling ride.
Here is the official movie synopsis:
- A violent, dark, funny and − ultimately − inspirational story, “Blessid” is about a pregnant woman with a cursed past who forms a bond with a man who is immortal. Why does he appear at her most desperate hour? And what can she − a person who struggles to emotionally survive each day − learn from a man who has overcome life’s greatest obstacle … time itself?”
“Blessid” was directed by Rob Fitz, produced and written by Robert Heske, and stars David Fine (“The Pursuit of Happyness”), Rachel Kerbs (“Splinter”) Gene Silvers, and Chris DiVecchio (“Foul Shot”)
The film does not have a release date yet, but keep it here for updates on this unique movie we are closely following with great interest.
Also, in case you are interested in a more in-depth movie description, Robert Heske —writer of “Blessid” — has written the following plot summary over at the IMDB web site.
- Sarah Duncliffe is pregnant and suicidal. She is married to a man she does not love, stalked by an abusive ex boyfriend, and haunted by a dead girl who stares at her with a bloated bluish face and sad, questioning eyes. After a mishap, Sarah is instructed by her doctor to stay in bed. Begrudgingly she does. That is, until a strange older man moves in next door. A man with black teeth and an odd habit of sneaking into Sarah’s yard to steal weeds. Emboldened by curiosity, Sarah sneaks into her neighbor’s yard – only to be locked inside a greenhouse. After she breaks a glass pane to escape, she cuts herself and faints. Sarah wakes and learns the neighbor had treated her wound with a strange herbal ointment and brought her to the hospital. Eventually Sarah gets up the nerve to introduce herself to her next door neighbor. They form a fast friendship and, when Sarah sneaks a look into his picture scrapbook…
