I hadn’t heard of the Danish thriller Shelley before writing this but it’s now been added to my “must see” list thanks to this oppressive and incredibly eerie trailer, which opens with Aphex Twin’s sublime “Aisatsana” and then descends into madness.
A childless couple make a bargain with their Romanian maid to serve as a surrogate. When the child inside her begins growing too quickly, it becomes clear that a sinister force is overtaking all of them.
Shelley was directed by Ali Abbasi and starring Cosmina Stratan, Ellen Dorrit Petersen, Bjorn Andresen, and Peter Christoffersen.
The film will be shown at the 2016 Fantasia Film Festival.
