Sometimes it’s better to stay digital. The new horror movie #Polaroid is looking to take the teenage horror genre to a fascinating new place, telling the story of a haunted camera that kills whomever it photographs. The new trailer looks promising — check it out below:
Polaroid is directed by #LarsKlevberg and inspired by his award-winning short of the same name. Comic book and video game enthusiast #BlairButler is the screenwriter behind the horror film. She is best known for working on the beloved program Attack of the Show on G4.
The film stars Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale), Kathryn Prescott (24: Legacy) and Javier Botet (The Revenant) along with with veterans #GraceZabriskie (Twin Peaks) and Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files).
Will The Director Find Himself In The Conjuring Universe If Polaroid Is A Success?
Horror short film directors have found themselves in the limelight lately. Popular short films have been made into full-length features with reasonable budgets. David F. Sandberg’s Lights Out got the full-length treatment last year; his success found him in the Conjuring Universe, directing the prequel spinoff Annabelle: Creation.
If Polaroid finds success for Lars Klevberg, director and #TheConjuringUniverse creator James Wan could snatch him up for another spinoff in the franchise. Although the end of August and early September marks the movie dry season, let’s hope Polaroid can end the summer with a good scare.
Polaroid will be released on August 25, 2017.
