Worth Watching - Apr 25: Tom Arnold in The Skeptic Trailer

What do you believe? IFC Films has finally debuted a trailer for The Skeptic, another horror thriller about a haunted house of sorts, but I'm featuring this one today because it feels a bit different. This is somewhat of an older film, as it was actually shot in late 2005/early 2006 and is just coming out this year. It stars Tom Arnold, Zoe Saldana, Andrea Roth, and most importantly, Tim Daly, who seems to make all the difference. Maybe I'm just being to optimistic, but it looks like Daly is one of the only really great parts of this. Realistically, it's probably a really bad film anyway, but at least it has a good trailer. Check it out below.
Watch the trailer for Tennyson Bardwell's The Skeptic:
After the mysterious death of his Aunt, a skeptic lawyer dismisses reports that her house is haunted and moves in. Immediately occurrences begin he cannot explain. And beyond the occurrences there's something about the house which gnaws at him - some strange connection he has with the house's past.
The Skeptic is both written and directed by Tennyson Bardwell, who also wrote and directed Dorian Blues from 2004. This film actually shot in late 2005 and has been in post-production for the last four years or so. IFC Films eventually picked it up and is now putting it out in very limited theaters starting on May 1st.
