Striking a blow against those who claim nothing much happens in indie flicks is upcoming horror, The Taking. Now we've got a scream-filled, blood drenched trailer for the art-house horror flick!

It's been helmed by a filmmaking duo known as The BAPartists (Cezil Reed and Lydelle Jackson), and has a suitably artsy sounding synopsis (that discloses a significant twist - spoiler haters beware!):

The Taking is a cinematic experience of light and sound. It's a film made with balls and intellectual muscle. In this film you will discover horrific art told via grisly images and two tales of woe...The experience begins with Carl who seeks to murder his best friend and adulterous fiancé.

Unexpectedly, he awakens in a wooded wasteland. He has no idea as to where he is or how he got there. A sinister family now holds him captive along with another victim named Jade. They're subjected to arcane rituals and are left tied to a tree for several days. When Carl looks back on their grisly experience in the forest, he comes to the realization that they're not just in the woods; rather, they are in a place where people go to fight the vices living inside of them. The losing of this fight is something far worse than death; it's the utter damnation of one's very soul.

Check out the very atmospheric, creepy international trailer below... [[yt:3xpBojAvsLM]]

It's currently doing the festival circuit and will be screened at the Sitges Film Festival next month. Does this look like your sort of horror flick? Or not your cup of tea at all? Let me know below...
