Alexia Rasmussen in Trailer for Rural Thriller 'They Want Me Gone'
"I think she wants us to have a new home." Gravitas Ventures has released an official traler for an indie film titled They Want Me Gone, which is another very literal and unoriginal title that is describing the plot of the film. This will be available to watch next week on VOD for those curious to see what it's all about. As she struggles to escape rural poverty with her young daughter, a loving mother suspects those closest to them in the community are starting to turn on her. "This slow-burn thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat, turning its suspenseful screws as it builds to a shocking climax." The film stars Alexia Rasmussen (from Son of Monarchs, "Believe") as Monica, with Jennifer Lafleur, Stephen Plunkett, Frank Mosley, and Delaney Wilk. This is quite an unsettling trailer, with almost a supernatural or cult vibe to it. Check it out.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Drew Britton's They Want Me Gone, direct from YouTube:
