The director of Martyrs is back for more mayhem, this time in Ghostland (Incident in a Ghost Land).
Last November, Bloody Disgusting shared an exclusive first look at images from Pascal Laugier‘s newest film starring Mylène Farmer, Crystal Reed, and Anastasia Philipps.
Last year, the script was described to me as being Stephen King-esque, and extremely dark and scary.
The story follows a mother of two who inherits a home from her Aunt. On the first night in the new home, she is confronted with murderous intruders and fights for her daughter’s lives. Sixteen years later when the daughters reunite at the house, and that is when things get strange…
Check out a teaser announcing the first trailer for the forthcoming March release internationally.
Here’s the long synopsis:
“Following her aunt’s death, Colleen (Farmer) and her two daughters – the eldest, Beth (Reed), totally locked-in and shy, finds comfort in the stories she invents in the books she writes, and Vera (Philipps), way more open and self-confident, inherit her house. However, during their first night in this new home, murderers break-in, pushing Colleen to fight to save her daughters’ lives. During this highly traumatic night, the girls’ disparate personalities diverge even further.
“Sixteen years later, Beth becomes a famous horror author with a perfect family and life in Chicago, while Vera can’t cope, and loses her mind faced to an unshakable sense of paranoia. Daughters and mother finally reunite at the house where Colleen and Vera still live. It is only then that strange events begin to take place…”
Taylor Hickson plays a young Vera, while Emilia Jones appears as a young Beth.
Farmer is an extremely famous French singer who has sold more than 30 million records in France and is among the most successful recording artists of all-time there (Wiki). Reed is the star of “Teen Wolf” and has also appeared in Crush and Skyline.
Clement Miserez and Jean-Charles Levy produce Incident in Ghost Land, which filmed near Winnipeg. The film is due for international release this coming March. No word on a U.S. release yet.
