We finally have an early leaked trailer for Case 39 to share with you this morning. This is another one of those films that has just been stuck in post-production hell. Case 39 was shot way back in 2006 by director Christian Alvart, who subsequently went on to direct the sci-fi thriller Pandorum for Overture. This trailer starts out looking like your standard thriller about angry, demonic parents who abuse their child, but it suddenly turns into a creepy paranormal horror feature about halfway through. And maybe that's why it hasn't been released yet. Who knows? Apologies for the low res version, as this came from YouTube.
Watch the trailer for Christian Alvart's Case 39:
Trailer has been removed at the request of Paramount. Sorry guys!
Case 39 centers on an idealistic social worker (Renée Zellweger) who saves an abused 10-year-old girl (Jodelle Ferland) from her parents only to discover that the girl is not as innocent as she thinks.
Case 39 is directed by German filmmaker Christian Alvart, of Curiosity & the Cat and Antibodies previously, as well as the upcoming Pandorum. The screenplay was written by Ray Wright of 2006's Pulse previously and the upcoming remake of The Crazies. This was actually shot in Vancouver back in 2006 and has been in post-production ever since. Paramount will hopefully be bringing Case 39 in theaters this year. Stay tuned!
