Watch This: Trailer for New One-Room Thriller Titled Exam
By now, the stuck-in-one-room thriller has almost become a genre of its own. Cube was one of the first to spark up a new batch and then we later got Saw and most recently The Killing Room. Now out of the UK comes another new thriller called Exam about eight people locked in one room who are given one simple question to answer. But what is the question? Empire has debuted a trailer for this and it looks frickin' fantastic. I'm a sucker for these kind of films and this looks like one of the better ones coming up. Plus, I haven't seen Colin Salmon (he's the Invigilator) in a good role in a while and he looks great. Watch this!
Watch the official trailer for Stuart Hazeldine's Exam:
Eight talented candidates have reached the final stage of selection to join the ranks of a mysterious and powerful corporation. Entering a windowless room, an Invigilator gives them eighty minutes to answer one simple question. He outlines three rules they must obey or be disqualified. That's all I need to know.
Exam is written and directed by first-time British director Stuart Hazeldine, a screenwriter who co-wrote Alex Proyas' Knowing as well as other a few other in-development projects. The story was also developed by Simon Garrity. The film premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival but doesn't have a US distributor yet. We're not sure when it'll hit US theaters, but I've got a feeling it'll hit other film festivals first. Look good?
