Rebirth Trailer

"Leave whenever you want, leave anytime you want…" Netflix has released the official trailer for a new indie feature it produced called Rebirth, from filmmaker Karl Mueller. The film is about an old friend who surprisingly shows up out of nowhere and convinces Kyle, played by Fran Kranz, to participate in a "self-actualization program" called Rebirth. As expected, it turns out this program is more of a cult and it's not exactly what it seems. The cast includes Adam Goldberg, Kat Foster, Nicky Whelan, Harry Hamlin, Andrew J. West, Sheryl Lee, Pat Healy, and Steve Agee. This looks quite intriguing, but I don't know how much more it has to say about cults that hasn't been covered in other films recently. Get a taste below.

Here's the first official trailer for Karl Mueller's Rebirth, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

Rebirth Poster

Get up. Go to work. Come home, dinner, bed, do it all again. That's life, every day, every year, until you die — unless you've got what it takes to be reborn. Rebirth gives a new lease on life, but only if you're willing to pay the price. "Kyle goes and stumbles on a bus full of Rebirth participants about to depart. He gets on the bus and hands over his keys, wallet, and phone. Thus begins his journey down an increasingly unhinged rabbit hole of psychodrama, seduction, and violence as a confused and increasingly desperate Kyle tries to escape Rebirth and discover what the weekend is really about." Rebirth is both written & directed by filmmaker Karl Mueller, of the horror film Mr. Jones from 2013 previously. It's the first in Netflix series of low budget indie features. Netflix will release Rebirth on its VOD service starting July 15th this summer.

Looks exciting. But Fincher's THE GAME may have done it better.

They just should visit some ghetto or something like that. There's enough of real for everyone. As for the rebirth, well, there might be some kind of ...

What the fuck does "visit some ghetto or something like that" even mean?

Well, you know, when you visit some place you go there and see people, how they live and how they feel about it. Then you imagine there are more people similar to them and that means 'something like that ...' Something similar to the place and the people you just saw and visited... Are we getting anywhere, huh?

Question: What's in it for Rebirth? Is it a huge psycho-social experience?

Love films about cults, this one seems a bit lacking least from the trailer.
