Full US Trailer for Lucile Hadzihalilovic's Body Horror Film 'Evolution'
"I'm going to count to ten… and then it'll be over." IFC Midnight has released a new trailer for the film Evolution, a mysterious sci-fi meets body horror film from France that first premiered at film festivals last year. In the film, Max Brebant stars as Nicholas, a boy living in a mysterious, isolated seaside clinic who uncovers the sinister purposes of his keepers. We first featured a teaser trailer for this film in late 2015, and it's finally going to be released later this year for those interesed. The full cast includes Roxane Duran, Julie-Marie Parmentier, and Mathieu Goldfeld. This definitely looks weird and freaky and confusing, but still mesmerizing to watch, with plenty of "haunting, otherworldly images of a nightmare." Take a look.
Here's the second official trailer for Lucile Hadzihalilovic's Evolution, direct from IFC's YouTube:
The only residents of young Nicholas's seaside town are women and boys. When he sees a dead body in the ocean one day, he begins to question his existence and surroundings. Why must he, and all the other boys, be hospitalised? Évolution is directed by French filmmaker Lucile Hadzihalilovic, director of the 2004 film Innocence previously as well as a number of shorts, and co-writer of Enter the Void. The screenplay was written by Alanté Kavaïté & Lucile Hadzihalilovic, in collaboration with Geoff Cox. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015, and played at the London, Stockholm + Torino Film Festivals. IFC Midnight will open Hadzihalilovic's Evolution in US theaters + on VOD starting November 25th this year. Curious?
It reminds me a little of that weird Italian movie that came out a few years back, it was a bit Lovecraftian and had a lot more comedy, it was called 'Spring'. Will keep a look out for this though.

Damn, that was *such* a good trailer. Got the same chills when I saw the 'Under the Skin' trailer. Hope this one lives up to its promise.

Looks interesting, and creepy. I don't normally go for horror, but this looks like a thinking-mans horror along w/ the SF angle. Hopefully it'll show in one of the more independent film houses in the DC Burbs.
