There are always a few gems hidden amongst the countless independent genre offerings. Some of which lead the cast and crew onto a major mainstream breakthrough. Most recently the trailer for unsettling pregnancy shocker PROXY caught my eye and looks and genuine demented classic. Today another thriller, Nate Taylor’s FORGETTING THE GIRL, has released a dark and tense trailer for a film that looks eerily in keeping with the likes of PEEPING TOM, MANIAC and BLOW-UP.
Check out that trailer, artwork and plot synopsis below. The film stars Christopher Denham, Lindsay Beamish, Elizabeth Rice, Paul Sparks and Anna Camp.
Haunted by a traumatic history, photographer Kevin Wolfe struggles to systematically forget all his bad memories, seeking a girl who can help him with the endeavor. Unfortunately, all his encounters with the opposite sex inevitably go afoul, creating more awkward experiences than he can cope with. As the rejections mount, the tense narrative slowly boils under the surface, until it unleashes in an unsettling climax that will not be easily forgotten.
FORGETTING THE GIRL will be playing theatrically in LA at the Downtown Independent, starting October 11th. No general release dates for the UK as yet.
