Earlier this month it was reported that LevelK has acquired world sales rights to the Dutch thriller Vicious, which now has an official sales trailer.
Dennis Bots directs the film, which is based on a bestselling novel by Mel Wallis De Vries, adapted by Alexandra Penrhyn Lowe.
The story is about four high school girls who go for a relaxing weekend at a remote cottage in the Ardennes. Their stay becomes a living hell after a series of weird and disturbing events.
“High school friends Kim, Abby, Feline and newcomer Pippa agree to spend the last few days before their final exams at a remote cottage in the Ardennes. What was meant to be fun girls’ weekend soon turns into a living hell. After a party with three guys from a nearby cottage, Feline disappears into thin air. Due to the heavy snowfall the girls are trapped with no phone signal. Someone appears to be after them and the atmosphere grows more and more sinister. Do the girls know everything there is to know about one another? How much viciousness can a friendship sustain?”
The cast is led by Abbey Hoes (EFP Shooting Star at Berlinale 2015), Olivia Lonsdale, Holly Mae Brood and Romy Gevers.
Bots has previously directed family and coming-of-age films including Cool Kids Don’t Cry, Secrets Of War, Code M and Storm: Letters Van Vuur.
