Trailers: "Watched", "Dashcam"

 

Two horror films have released their official trailers, both covering their narratives in the classic "single room" setting meant to help add atmosphere. However, I will leave the success of that up to you. Check them out below:

 

Watcher


Following rave reviews at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Watcher is set to make its theatrical debut on June 3rd, followed by its VOD release on Shudder on June 21th. Directed by Chloe Okuno and written by Zack Ford, Maika Monroe (who has received praise for her performance) stars as Julia who moves to Bucharest with her boyfriend Francis (Karl Glusman). Isolated while Francis works and unable to speak the language, Julie grows in fear of a local serial killer, made worse by the fact she begins to perceive that she is being constantly watched and followed by a sinister neighbor named Daniel Weber (Burn Gorman). A simple concept epitomized in the new poster for the film:

But the slow-burn film shows it's effectiveness far more in the official trailer. Check it out below:

 

Dashcam


Though not as well-received when it premiered at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival, the upcoming film Dashcam is the next project by Rob Savage who previously earned acclaim for his Zoom-based horror film Host (2020). Procuced by Blumhouse, Savage also co-wrote the script with Gemma Hurley and Jed Shepherd.


Trading Zoom calls for streaming, the story follows Annie (Annie Hardy) who decides to embark on a journey across the UK as she attempts to escape COVID-19 restrictions in the US. As she live-streams her adventure, Annie’s plans take a sudden and sinister turn after she agrees to help an elderly woman named Angela (Angela Enahoro) and troubling supernatural events begin to occur all around her. With her friend Stretch (Amer Chadha-Patel) in tow, the pair attempt to flee from the mysterious force that pursues them, growing increasingly violent as the night wears on.


Also set to land in theaters on June 3rd, you can check out the official trailer for the film below, a film that is the latest to be filmed entirely on an iPhone:

 

Stay tuned!
