Hey guys! Horrorella here...
A new trailer has hit for the latest film from Nacho Vigalondo, OPEN WINDOWS. Vigalondo, who has previously brought us such gems as TIMECRIMES and EXTRATERRESTRIAL is going the thriller route with this new film. It stars Elijah Wood as Nick, the number one of a famous actress, played by Sasha Grey. He finds himself with direct access to her computer thanks to a mysterious hacker. What starts out as being the best (yet creepiest) gift in the world quickly turns into a nightmare, as the hacker in question has his own agenda and is using Nick and his newly-granted access to help him to carry it out.
The story is shown pretty exclusively through computer screens, which gives it an interesting twist, as well as, undoubtedly, its own unique challenges. I am really excited to see how Vigalondo handles them.
This film is just the latest in a series of interesting genre projects that Elijah Wood has tackled, including 2012's MANIAC remake, and last year's GRAND PIANO.
Updated Release Dates: OPEN WINDOWS hits theaters on November 7th, following a VOD release on October 2nd. What do you guys think?
Oscar®-nominated writer-director Nacho Vigalondo (The ABCs of Death, Extraterrestrial, V/H/S Viral) creates an action-packed world of voyeurism and suspense in his thriller OPEN WINDOWS. Nick (Elijah Wood, Maniac, The Lord of the Rings) is excited to discover that he's won a dinner date with his favorite actress, Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey, Would You Rather, The Girlfriend Experience). But when Jill refuses to honor the contest, her manager Chord (Neil Maskell, Wild Bill, Pusher) makes an offer he can’t refuse: the ability to view Jill secretly via computer. Nick begins watching the unknowing star on her webcam, not realizing that this decision will put both himself and Jill at risk as they enter a terrifying world of cat-and-mouse where nothing—and no one—are as they seem
