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?

    It's like a teen-drama version of Groundhog Day.
  • Icefilm
    I always wondered what GROUNDHOG DAY would be like with troubled, anarchistic teens with no parental supervision...
  • ocp
    What no Bill Murray?
  • LINKFX
    hahaha...this looks patently ridiculous..."see you this morning, kyle"...ok, Kyle? Really? Kyle Reese? hahaha..i can't help but notice that more than obvious reference to another time traveler...honestly this looks gritty in a really superficial shitty way...unless this gets amazing reviews my interest is not piqued. And yeah, WTF flying motorcycle?
  • Xerxex
    Amanda Crew? that warrants a rent. This is merely Groundhog Day rated R.
  • lolwut
    Watch and then you insult it? Get lost.
  • Cracky
    Lol. I think this would be a smash-hit if they had Bill Murray in it as the villain.

    #6 - Some people might enjoy it... And I'm still going to see it up in Toronto. It has a unique concept, the trailer is worth watching, but I don't know if the movie will be any good.
  • Morlock
    Like this movie's premise, I think I've already seen this. The only thing that seems to be missing is vampires.
  • Morlock
    no...I stand corrected. Zombies.

    Needs more ninjas. I'd watch it if there was nothing else on.
  • Panda
    A combination of swedish Naken (2000) and Triangle (2009) ? :D
  • beavis
    the concept for this movie seems interesting. however, the cast and terrrible acting will ruin this movie......... a rent at best. also, i LMAO at the showing (for no apparent reason?) of the guy and girl making out and the motorcycle flying across the screen.............really cheesy.
  • LW
    So far, it seems like this: Teen1: Boohoo! I'm an angtsy teen an no one understands me!... plus I'm repeating everyday. Teen2: Boohoo! I'm conforming to the director's expectations of the teenage condition! Waaa... Girl: I'm in loves with one of them! Oh noes! You twos are fighting over me, oh noes!
  • LINKFX
    @ LW, i laughed my ass off when i read your comment.
  • Bee
    How was that worth watching? What a pile of shit.

    I just saw The Butterfly Effect meets Groundhog Day in one movie trailer. And I don't like it.
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Haha, Butterfly Effect is exactly what I was thinking of, too.
  • lamar
    Even though its a reused concept its still unique at the same time. The movie seems cool to me, I'd go see it in a theater. I mean come on guys, never in a film have I seen people cause total anarchy because they knew they'd get a second chance the next day.
  • MarcusNyce
    "See you this morning Kyle." HA! Craptacular.
  • 4realz2
    Looks damn cool!!!! Think it will be a good film to see.
  • Ellewood
    Saw this at TIFF. Trailer doesn't do it justice. Such a cool film! totally worth seeing. Glad I went to it.
  • Rip
    I saw this film at TIFF and it was very good. Not like an all time classic but definitely worth watching for any fans of sci-fi time travel. I found this page because I am trying to figure out how to find it so I can watch it a second time.
