First Teaser Trailer for Guy Maddin's New Film 'The Forbidden Room'
Get a load of this! What a funky teaser trailer. The first official teaser trailer for Guy Maddin's new film The Forbidden Room has debuted online, and it's a quite a doozy. This wacky, experimental film premiered at Sundance in the New Frontier section. If you're familiar with Maddin's past work, you may know his style already. But if not, this fun teaser will give you a brief glimpse. The introduction of the cast is a bit tiresome, but at least it looks nice. Directed by Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson, The Forbidden Room stars Roy Dupuis, Clara Furey, Louis Negin, Udo Kier, Mathieu Amalric, Charlotte Rampling and Victor Andres Turgeon-Trelles. If abstract stories that dive six layers deep are your thing, then give this a whirl.

A submarine crew, a feared pack of forest bandits, a famous surgeon and a battalion of child soldier all get more than they bargained for as the wend their way toward progressive ideas on life and love. The Forbidden Room is the latest film from experimental Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin, of The Saddest Music in the World, My Winnipeg and Brand Upon The Brain previously. This was co-directed by Evan Johnson, with a screenplay by Guy Maddin & Evan Johnson & Robert Kotyk. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and will screen at the New York and Toronto Film Festivals coming up. The Forbidden Room will open in select theaters on October 7th. For more info, visit the film's official site.

The glitchy datamosh transitions are great in the trailer and the titles, but it is quite inconsistent, quite liked it though.

Yeah, this type of thing would have appealed to me in college in conjunction with various drugs. However, I'm a grown-a$$ man now, and I'll have to pass. I don't have time for this sh*t.

You need somebody with an IQ off the chart to decipher and explain this move to you. That clearly rules out Bo who is an idiot.

Alternate Post Title: "A Bunch of Different, Yet Shitty, Fonts, Pretentiously Displayed". ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Pass.

I guess there is a place for this somewhere in the world. Like a toilet.

I noticed a few names I like. They picked my interest for this hallucinating attempt at my poor soul ...

F all the naysayers, Guy Maddin is way underrated (check out My Winnipeg, ya punks) and this trailer is hauntingly beautiful. (Comparable to the opening of Into the Void, I'd say.) Sure, it's not for everyone, but this guy is a huge unique talent nonetheless.

You either love Madden films or you hate them and this comment section is proof of that. You have to understand his sense of humour. If you can get over the fact his films aren't conventional and give them a chance, you might find them rewarding. Negative comments on this site are badges of honour.
