Official Trailer: Nightmarish Hollywood Horror, “STARRY EYES”News Samuel Zimmerman
The strobing, throbbing, nightmarish STARRY EYES has garnered an evocative, befitting trailer ahead of its mid-November release.
The excellent STARRY EYES World Premiered this past spring at Austin’s SXSW, where it engulfed its audience in a tale of one woman’s brutal sacrifice, body horror and surreal descent, all in the name of stardom. Directed by Kevin Kölsch & Dennis Widmyer, the film stars a captivating Alex Essoe as Sarah Walker, who “spends her days working a dead-end job, enduring petty friendships and going on countless casting calls in hopes of catching her big break. After a series of strange auditions, Sarah lands the leading role in a new film from a mysterious production company. But with this opportunity comes bizarre ramifications that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful… and altogether terrifying.”
The clip really captures the atmosphere of STARRY EYES, one that’s grotesque and seductive. If you’re in NYC, the film plays Lincoln Center’s Scary Movies 8 this Sunday night. It’s on iTunes and VOD from Dark Sky Films this November 14.
