Dominic Monaghan & Ksenia Solo in Abduction Thriller 'Pet' Trailer
"I'm not doing this for me, I'm doing this for you. Samuel Goldwyn Films has released a trailer for an indie horror thriller titled Pet, about a sweet guy who works at animal shelter who all of a sudden kidnaps and locks up a woman he is interested in. Dominic Monaghan plays the seemingly nice guy who goes crazy and kidnaps her, and Ksenia Solo plays the beautiful woman he has his eyes on. The cast also includes Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Parsons. The twist in this seems to be that she might be even crazier than he is, or something like that (even the synopsis hints at it), but it's hard to tell where this is going with the trailer - there's some really funky moments in this. I'm curious about this, especially because of the cast.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Carles Torrens' Pet, direct from YouTube:
Sweet but lonely Seth (Dominic Monaghan) spends his days working in an animal shelter. In a hopeless daze, he has a chance encounter with beautiful young waitress Holly (Ksenia Solo) who awakens something within him. Obsessed, he tries everything to win her over. Time and again, she rejects him, leading him to steal her journal and make a plan: to kidnap Holly. After Seth takes Holly, she wakes up in a cage beneath the animal shelter, treated like the dogs living above her. As Seth's lies begin to catch up to him, Holly toys with his emotions and his certainty of the situation falls apart. Pet is directed by Spanish filmmaker Carles Torrens, of Apartment 143 previously. The script is by Jeremy Slater. This premiered at the SXSW Film Festival. Samuel Goldwyn opens Pet in select theaters + on VOD starting December 2nd.
