Exclusive poster: Screamfest premiere film “NACIYE”Movies/TV,News Michael Gingold
Making its world premiere this week at LA’s Screamfest is the Turkish horror film NACIYE, and we’ve got an exclusive first look at the poster past the jump.
NACIYE, which screens this Thursday, October 15 at 7:30 p.m. at TCL Chinese 6 Theatres (6801 Hollywood Boulevard), is the feature debut of writer/director Lutfu Emre Cicek, who has won notice for his scary short films. The synopsis: “A pregnant couple [Esin Harvey and Gorkem Mertsoz) travels for the weekend to check out the house they rented on a whim for the remainder of the pregnancy. On their first night in the secluded home, they encounter a dangerous woman [award-winning Turkish actress Derya Alabora] who claims to be its rightful owner.”
“With this movie, I wanted to make something that would be familiar to horror fans in its homages to horror-movie tropes but maintain its Turkish touches, like the island setting, the soap opera-esque hysteria of the leads, Naciye’s style of clothing and the music,” Cicek says. “To have the world premiere in the heart of Hollywood and to launch our film at this prestigious horror-film festival and for audiences to discover it is a dream come true.”
Cicek, Harvey and Mertsoz will attend the premiere; for more info on the Screamfest showing and to get tickets, click here; check out NACIYE’s trailer below the poster and visit its official website and Facebook page.
