New horror in town, watch the new POLAROID trailer


Dimension Films has released the second trailer for the upcoming horror film Polaroid.

Polaroid is the feature debut for director Lars Klevberg, adapting from his Norwegian short film of the same name, which earned critical acclaim when it made the festival rounds in 2015. The story follows a teenage girl who stumbles upon a vintage Polaroid camera in the shop where she works. The camera becomes the evil of evils as it also happens to kill everyone who gets their picture taken with it. The concept is simple and we've seen it before in The Ring, Final Destination and many more, but there must be a reason why it works so well, right?

"The bulk of the cast is made up of young, blandly pretty people you’ve probably never seen before, but there are a few casting choices that should stand out to genre aficionados. Yes, that is The X-Files alum Mitch Pileggi as the adult “voice of reason,” who seemingly exists just to tell the kids “No, that antique polaroid camera is not causing all of your suspicious deaths” (bad advice in this case). Even more interesting is the casting Javier Botet, the impossibly tall and thin Spanish actor who has made a career out of playing horror movie monsters. "' (Slashfilm)

The trailer is unimpressive as far as horror trailers go, but it's not a complete turn off, which might be reason enough to give the movie a go when it shows up in US theaters on August 25 . At one point, one of the teenagers tries to set a picture on fire, causing its subject to burn herself.

The official synopsis reads:

From the producers of the The Ring and The Grudge and based on the award-winning short by Lars Klevberg, comes the next iconic and bold new vision in horror: Polaroid. High school loner Bird Fitcher has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the mysterious Polaroid vintage camera she stumbles upon, but it doesn’t take long to discover that those who have their picture taken meet a tragic end.

The film stars Kathryn Prescott, Mitch Pileggi, Grace Zabriskie, Tyler Young, Keenan Tracey, Samantha Logan, Priscilla Quintana, and Madelaine Petsch.
