The Los Angeles Film Festival is nearly upon us and the big name films tend to generate the buzz and hog the spotlight, it's the lower key films that end up getting audience talking afterwards and of those may be the indie horror film "Entrance."
Co-directed by Dallas Hallam and Patrick Horvath (they previously worked together on the horror comedy "Die-ner"), we're pleased to unveil the trailer for their latest effort and it definitely caught our attention. Comprised of a series of beautiful lensed static shots (the cinematography looks great) and some well built sound design, the minute and half long teaser is a chiller, suggesting unspeakable things happening off screen as we watch the seemingly innocuous frames roll by. Starring Suziey Block who leads a large cast, the film centers on a young woman whose anxiety of living in Los Angeles turns sinister.
The film will premiere at the festival in the Beyond section with the first screening taking place on Friday, June 24th. The festival runs from June 16th-26th. Check out the trailer, synopsis, poster and pic from the film below.
When Suzy, a beautiful Silverlake hipster, mysteriously loses her beloved dog, a creeping anxiety begins to set in and she decides she’s had enough of L.A.. But on the night of her going-away party, Suziey finds out that leaving might not be so easy.
A remarkably deft blending of genres, this character-study-meets-horror-flick is a true East Side collaboration. Suzy the Silverlake barista really is Suzy the Silverlake barista (and a gifted actress) and the rambling hillside home she inhabits onscreen was director Dallas Hallam’s rental during shooting. But what’s most remarkable about Hallam and Patrick Horvath’s directorial debut is the unshakable sense of dread it evokes. Be warned–you may not sleep so well once you’ve experienced Entrance.
