Watch: Carl Bessai's Time Loop Sci-Fi Film 'Repeaters' Trailer
Well this is definitely on my "radar" now. HitFix just debuted an early trailer for a "gritty, sci-fi film" called Repeaters, from director Carl Bessai, that will be premiering at the Toronto Film Festival next month. The film plays with the Groundhog Day stuck-in-a-time-loop concept, but twists it into a "aggressive, fast-paced thriller" that addresses the morals of starting over with a clean slate every day in some of the most extreme ways (you'll see). It looks okay, not great, but wait - why did a random motorbike just fly across the screen? Why aren't there more explosions! Kidding, of course, but that was just a bit cheesy. Check this out below!
Watch the first teaser trailer for Carl Bessai's Repeaters:
A gritty mind-bending thriller about three twenty-somethings - Sonia, Kyle, Weeks - who find themselves stuck in an impossible time labyrinth, where each day they awaken to the same terrifying day as before.
Repeaters is directed by Canadian filmmaker Carl Bessai, of numerous independent flicks like Johnny, Lola, Severed, Mothers & Daughters and Cole previously. The concept and screenplay was written by Arne Olsen, of timeless classics like Red Scorpion, Cop and a Half, All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 and of course the TV movie Grizzly Rage previously (no wonder this looks so bad). This premieres at the Toronto Film Festival where it will be searching for a US distributor. Stay tuned for updates if you're interested in this at all! Thoughts?
