Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Indiewire has debuted the first trailer and poster for the upcoming mystery, BACKGAMMON. The feature film debut of Francisco Orvañanos, the film is an adaptation of R.B. Russell's novella Bloody Baudelaire.
The story follows a group of college students who's weekend getaway in the country turns strange (and potentially threatening) when some uninvited guests show up.
Part psychological sexual thriller and part classic mystery, Backgammon explores sexual tension, danger and mind games between a group of college students during a getaway in a country mansion. When Andrew invites Lucian and his girlfriend Elizabeth for a weekend vacation, they don’t expect Andrew’s sister Miranda and her Baudelaire-obsessed boyfriend Gerald to show up as well. Overwhelmed by Gerald’s antics and the constant irritating horseplay with Miranda, Andrew and Elizabeth split. Lucian, however, decides to stay, as a simmering, sexual tension develops between him and the flighty, flirtatious Miranda. When Gerald explodes after losing everything during an alcohol-fueled poker game with Lucian, Miranda finally gives him the boot. But as she and Lucian begin to dance around each other, their surroundings show threatening signs that Gerald may never have left.
The trailer seems to throw out psychological mystery and sexual tension equally, and the film definitely has potential to be an interesting watch. It stars Brittany Allen, Noah Silver, Alex Beh, Olivia Crocicchia and Christian Alexander. It's set to hit theaters and VOD on March 11th.
