Must Watch: Nacho Vigalondo's Timecrimes Trailer

September 22, 2008
Timecrimes is the first feature-length film from whimsical Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo. It's a low budget supernatural thriller about a man who accidentally gets sent back in time and must solve a mystery. It first premiered at the Fantastic Fest in Austin last year and went on to play at Sundance earlier this year. I've heard great things about it and have been interested in seeing it. I'm expecting that most of you might end up seeing this when it hits theaters (or DVD) anyway, because it's building a cult following and already has an American remake in the works. And this looks pretty damn good for a low budget thriller like this. For some late night entertainment, be sure to check out this trailer for Timecrimes.
Johnny Butane of Dread Central gave the film a good review, saying that "Timecrimes is not for everyone, it's leisurely yet tense pacing sees to that, but for those looking to utilize their gray matter some when digesting a horror film, you'll find a lot to dig about it." I think that definitely sums it up. You can also read a few more very positive reviews from Rotten Tomatoes. Without any further ado, enjoy this trailer!
