Drafthouse Films just shared with Bloody an exclusive clip from Nothing Bad Can Happen, the acclaimed dark thriller now in Los Angeles theaters with a NYC release set for July 3rd.
The film is said to be a brutal, unrelenting thriller from Germany, directed by Katrin Gebbe and based on a shocking true story. The clip shows you just how uncomfortable the film can be, with a kid being so terrifyingly afraid of his “surrogate father” that he prays for him not to get angry, which only makes him even more pissed off.
“Inspired by atrocious true events, Nothing Bad Can Happen follows Tore, a young lost soul involved with an underground Christian punk movement who falls in with a dysfunctional family curious to test his seemingly unwavering faith. After a chance encounter helping Benno, a stranded driver, and managing to help start his car again in what appears to be a miracle, Tore is invited back to Benno’s home and becomes friendly with him, his wife and two kids. Before long, Tore moves in and gradually becomes part of the family. However, Benno can’t resist playing a cruel game, designed to challenge Tore’s beliefs. As his trials become more and more extreme, Tore finds his capacity for love and resilience pushed to its limits, and beyond.“
