New Photos: Intense German Psychodrama “NOTHING BAD CAN HAPPEN”News Samuel Zimmerman
NOTHING BAD CAN HAPPEN is a very intense, really good film that I think you should see. So, check out these photos and find out when you can.
This month, Drafthouse Films is releasing two unique, notable horror films. One, BORGMAN, is already in the process of rolling out. That film is a Dutch home invasion fable that’s equal parts blackly comedic, horrifying and outright strange. Its worldview is dark and its oft-used description of Haneke-meets-DOGTOOTH is really kind of spot-on. I hope you let it alter your day.
Out this June 27th in LA and July 3rd in NY is NOTHING BAD CAN HAPPEN, the German psychodrama that won’t just alter your day, but possibly ruin it. That’s in a good way, of course. It follows “Tore, a young lost soul involved with an underground Christian punk movement who falls in with a deeply dysfunctional family, lorded over by a father who cannot resist playing cruel games designed to challenge Tore’s beliefs. As his trials become more and more extreme, the young man finds his capacity for love and resilience pushed to its limits, and beyond.”
This is visceral, affecting filmmaking from director Katrin Gebbe. It’s hard-hitting and upsetting and certainly ends up, as Kier-La Janisse wrote in our review, as a work of transcendent genre. Admirers of MARTYRS and SNOWTOWN should line up now.
