Watch: First Lengthy Festival Trailer for Francis Ford Coppola's 'Twixt'
"What are vampires but witches that suck blood?" The first official trailer, running nearly 4-minutes long, for Francis Ford Coppola's horror Twixt has arrived thanks to the Toronto Film Fest (via Vlicious). This is a similar extended promo reel that Coppola showed at Comic-Con before he went on to remix and re-edit it live right in front of us. Twixt stars Val Kilmer as a hack horror novelist and Elle Fanning as the young ghost girl he meets in a small town; this also stars Bruce Dern, Alden Ehrenreich and Ben Chaplin as Edgar Allan Poe (seen above). It's probably not what you're expecting it to be, but it might be interesting anyway.
Watch the first official festival trailer for Francis Ford Coppola's Twixt, via TIFF on YouTube:
This gothic indie follows a hack horror novelist (Kilmer) as ghostly visions in a bizarre small town lead him to explore the murder of a young girl (Fanning). That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious ghost named V. Coppola says the story is "inspired by the eerie writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe" and came to him in a vivid dream he had while on a trip to Istanbul. Twixt is both written & directed by Francis Ford Coppola, of classics like The Godfather I-III, The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Youth Without Youth and Tetro most recently. Coppola is planning a 30-day tour before American Zoetrope is releasing it. In the meantime, Twixt will also play at the Toronto Film Festival.
