Egads! It's been nearly a full year since our last Trailer Round-Up post! There's just been so much news pouring in daily that we haven't been able to keep up with previews for the latest genre films! So to (hopefully) get back on track, here are four new trailers for upcoming releases about kinky games gone wrong, demonic possession, psychic powers, and hunting the "most dangerous game!" Scroll down and peep 'em out Vault Dwellers!
TRAILER #1: GERALD'S GAME
Release Date: September 29, 2017 (Premiering on NetFlix!)
Carla Gugino stars in this adaptation of a Stephen King novel. A married couple goes to a secluded getaway to spice up their love life. But mere moments after being handcuffed to the bed, Gugino's hubby has a heart attack, leaving her trapped, and alone, with no way to escape. (To be honest, if I was about to do the deed with Carlo Gugino, I'd probably have a heart attack too!) Will she die of dehydration, starvation, or will she be killed and devoured by a stray dog? Find out in three more weeks!
TRAILER #2: HAPPY HUNTING
Release Date: September 22, 2017
Warren Novak (Martin Dingle Wall) is a chronic drunk that is suffering from alcohol withdrawal. When he drifts into the town of Bedford Flats, he ends up getting hunted for sport by the twisted townsfolk! As he fights to stay alive, Warren also has to keep the DTs away by ingesting any booze he can find, as the film "builds to a blood-soaked, live-or-die showdown deep in the desert!" I'm definitely keeping my eye out for this one! Scope out the trailer below and get excited gang!
TRAILER #3: INSIDIOUS 4 - THE LAST KEY
Release Date: January 5, 2018
Truth be told, I haven't watched any of the INSIDIOUS sequels, but I'm happy to see that Lin Shaye has become a central character after her appearance in the original film. The fourth installment in the franchise pits Shaye's parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier, against a presence that is haunting her family's home! To save everyone, she'll have to cross over into the spiritual realm to deal with the key-fingered tormentor once and for all. If you're a fan of the series, watch the trailer below and get excited!
TRAILER #4: THELMA
Release Date: September 17, 2017 (In Norway. U.S. release TBA.)
This artsy, romantic sci-fi tale from Norway focuses upon the titular character, who discovers that she has special powers. I'm not sure what her abilities are, or if they are supernatural in origin, but I'm pretty sure they kick in because she's experiencing a sexual awakening (puberty) and feels guilty that she is falling in love with a member of the same sex. Regardless of what the actual plot is, the movie looks interesting, and seems worth a look. Watch the trailer below to make up your own mind, then wait for it to come out... later this year perhaps?
That's it for this installment Vault Dwellers! Be sure to check back soon for more trailers, as well as updates on other upcoming genre films and Blu-ray releases!
