You won’t want to shake this Polaroid picture.
While we wait for Dimension Films to release the latest Amityville Horror, they’ve set an December 1, 2017, date for Lars Klevberg’s hotly anticipated Polaroid, which now has a trailer. The footage reminds me of the terrifying Thai horror film Shutter, while also channeling the James Wan-produced Lights Out, also based on a short. The biggest connection to our horror roots, however, comes in the revealed device that a shadow within the polaroids dictates who will die next, which sounds like something out of a Final Destination film. While the trailer does remind us of some other horror classics, it also looks really well made and extremely fun. This summer is looking frightening! What do you think?
Polaroid stars Kathryn Prescott (The Hive), Mitch Pileggi (“The X-Files”), Grace Zabriskie (The Grudge), Tyler Young (Eyewitness), Keenan Tracey (“Bates Motel”), Samantha Logan (The Fosters), Priscilla Quintana (Stranded), Madelaine Petsch (“Riverdale”) and Javier Botet (Mama).
High school loner Bird Fitcher (Prescott) has no idea what dark secrets are tied to the 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 is produced by Roy Lee (The Ring, Blair Witch) and Chris Bender (The Ring, The History of Violence). Written by Blair Butler, it’s based on the short by Lars Klevberg.
