This August, Alejandro Amenábar, director of Tesis and The Others returns to the thriller with Regression, a tale of seeming cultic conspiracy starring Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke. See the latest poster for the film, reminiscent of close-ups like The Strangers and Funny Games, below.
Out August 28th from Dimension, Regression is set in “Minnesota, 1990. Detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigates the case of young Angela (Emma Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable crime. When John unexpectedly and without recollection admits guilt, renowned psychologist Dr. Raines (David Thewlis) is brought in to help him relive his memories and what they discover unmasks a horrifying nationwide mystery.”
There’s still no proper U.S. trailer for the film, but a previous international clip (below) looks terrific, with a black mass to boot. [IMP]
