Back in 2013, an indie film called Nothing Bad Can Happen made the festival rounds, winning awards at Cannes, AFI and Fantastic Fest, is now winding up for a limited official release in Los Angeles and New York on June 27th with nationwide release dates to follow.
Inspired by horrifying true events, Nothing Bad Can Happen follows Tore, a young lost soul involved with an underground Christian punk movement who falls in with a dysfunctional family who test his seemingly unwavering faith. After a chance encounter helping stranded driver Benno, where Tore manages to start his car with an apparent miracle, he is invited back to Benno's home and becomes friendly with him, his wife, and two children. Before long Tore moves into a tent in the garden and gradually becomes part of the family. However, Benno can’t resist playing a cruel game designed to challenge Tore’s beliefs. As his trials become more and more extreme, Tore finds his capacity for love and resilience pushed to its limits and beyond.
While I can honestly say that the film description doesn't inspire much interest...the trailer is a different story altogether. Violent, unhesitating, and completely unexpected.
