Creepy Trailer for Christian Alvart's Horror Case 39
by Alex Billington
April 27, 2009
We finally have an early leaked trailer for Case 39 to share with you this morning. This is another one of those films that has just been stuck in post-production hell. Case 39 was shot way back in 2006 by director Christian Alvart, who subsequently went on to direct the sci-fi thriller Pandorum for Overture. This trailer starts out looking like your standard thriller about angry, demonic parents who abuse their child, but it suddenly turns into a creepy paranormal horror feature about halfway through. And maybe that's why it hasn't been released yet. Who knows? Apologies for the low res version, as this came from YouTube.
Watch the trailer for Christian Alvart's Case 39:
Trailer has been removed at the request of Paramount. Sorry guys!
Case 39 centers on an idealistic social worker (Renée Zellweger) who saves an abused 10-year-old girl (Jodelle Ferland) from her parents only to discover that the girl is not as innocent as she thinks.
Case 39 is directed by German filmmaker Christian Alvart, of Curiosity & the Cat and Antibodies previously, as well as the upcoming Pandorum. The screenplay was written by Ray Wright of 2006's Pulse previously and the upcoming remake of The Crazies. This was actually shot in Vancouver back in 2006 and has been in post-production ever since. Paramount will hopefully be bringing Case 39 in theaters this year. Stay tuned!

Looks like an episode of Supernatural, with a bigger budget, which is okay.

Looks so god damn generic, I mean honestly enough with these crappy ass horror films.

Is anybody capable of writing a horror movie that does not have a creepy kid in it?
tankmaster on Apr 27, 2009
Looks like a fun dark movie. To defend this movie a bit, the kid isn't creepy.

Looks like another remake of an Asian Horror film where the main baddy is a creepy kid. I might have to pass.

Why do people think the kid is the villain? It seemed to me that she was the victim in all of this.

Well that must be the creepiest Bridget Jones movie ever coming out... No, seriously, it doesn't look bad, but I'd agree that it also seems to be probably rather a bit generic from the storyline.

Gotta say there are a shitload of movies with little kids as the horror, but this also looks like it could be pretty awesome.

that kid freaked me out in silent hill and apparently she wants to do it again.

This has been bumped for about two years so my hopes are not high, but the trailer is very nice. Reminds me of THE REAPING (but that was not very good either).

pipo on Apr 28, 2009
I waiting sooo long for this. I'm scared with that girl when she was played in silent hill (really creepy) oh ya and renee can't wait to see her acting! Must be hot, but why bradley cooper must died on scene?
