For almost half of this trailer, Spring holds its cards tight against its chest, that it only needs the slightest tip of its hand to get me interested. This story of a romance between an American backpacker and an Italian local is hiding something deeply sinister underneath, and the trailer’s unease boils into gripping creature horror for barely a few seconds before the title card cuts away.
Directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, responsible for 2012’s Resolution, the movie’s been running the festival circuit since last year. As it stands, word of mouth is incredibly strong, and from this trailer, I can definitely see why.
Spring will be released, well, this spring. In the US, look for it 20 March.
