Over the past couple of weeks or more Cinemart has been truffling around the Internet like wild boars looking for clips and trailers for flicks playing at this year’s Film4 FrightFest. So far we’ve had dancing girls in Dead Sushi, a trailer for neo-giallo, Berberian Sound Studio, and the teaser for the Soska sisters’ American Mary. Today we bring you the trailer for Jennifer “Daughter of David” Lynch’s Chained.
Lynch fils got off to a terrible start with the notorious Boxing Helena but her 2008 effort, Surveillance, although hardly a classic impressed some critics. Now she’s back with Chained, which plays at FrightFest on Monday 27th at 15.15 p.m.
Chained stars Jake Weber, Julia Ormond, Vincent D’Onofrio and Gina Philips. It is getting a 2nd October home release (Blu-ray and DVD) from Anchor Bay. There’s no news yet on a UK release, so head to FrightFest next month for your chance to see it. Chained was slapped with the dreaded NC-17 in the USA. So definitely worth checking out then!
Coming home from a routine trip to the movies, eight-year-old Tim (Bird) and his mother, Sarah (Ormond), are picked up by a psychopathic cab driver named Bob (D’Onofrio). It ends up being their last ride together. Bob murders the young boy’s mother and keeps Tim as his unwilling protégé, making him clean up the mess following each murder he commits. After a couple of aborted escape attempts, Bob chains Tim – now renamed Rabbit – allowing just enough length to move freely within the house. As the years pass, Bob starts instructing Rabbit, teaching him anatomy and human behavior. Now a teenager, Rabbit (Eamon Farren, X: Night of Vengeance) is slowly being pressed by Bob to start his own homicidal spree. Slowly but surely, he must soon choose whether to follow in Bob’s serial killer footsteps or make one final, desperate attempt to break free…
