First Trailer for Joe Begos' Psychokinetic Horror Film 'The Mind's Eye'
Whoa! RLJ Entertainment has released a crazy first trailer for Joe Begos' new body-horror / psychological thriller The Mind's Eye, which won Best Horror Director at Fantastic Fest last year. Graham Skipper plays Zack Connors, and Lauren Ashley Carter plays Rachel Meadows, two people born with "incredible psychokinetic capabilities" who are hunted by a doctor that wants to harvest their powers. The cast includes John Speredakos, Larry Fessenden, Noah Segan and Matt Mercer. The film has been described as an homage to the early films of David Cronenberg and Brian De Palma, and the poster has a quote calling it "the best Scanners sequel we never got." This definitely looks trippy and weird, and perfect for a late night.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Joe Begos' The Mind's Eye, direct from YouTube:
Zack Connors and Rachel Meadows were born with incredible psychokinetic capabilities. When word of their supernatural talents gets out, they find themselves the prisoners of Michael Slovak, a deranged doctor intent on harvesting their powers. After a daring escape, they are free from his sinister institution, but the corrupt doctor will stop at nothing to track them down so that he may continue to siphon their gifts for his own use. The Mind's Eye is directed by young American filmmaker Joe Begos, of the horror-thriller Almost Human previously. The film originally premiered at TIFF and Fantastic Fest last year. RLJ Entertainment will open The Mind's Eye in theaters starting August 5th later this summer. Who's curious?
