‘Twixt’ Looks Interesting, But I Assure You That It’s Not

Twixt

Remember when The Godfather and Apocalypse Now director Francis Ford Coppola was planning a roadshow with his indie vampire flick Twixt? After premiering last September in Toronto to a slew of negative reviews (including ours), it appears the iconic director has slammed on the brakes. Rightfully so if you ask me.

While his big “edit the film live” campaign fails here in the States, France is looking to open the feature some time in 2012. Pathe has unleashed an international trailer for the pic starring Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, David Paymer and Ben Chaplin.

A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night, in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He’s unsure of her connection to the murder in the town but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.

I know it looks cool, but I assure you that it’s not.
