First Teaser for Indie Cult Thriller 'The Mire' Directed by Adam Nelson
"Do you remember the moment of your birth?" "Has anyone ever answered yes to that question?" Apple Park Films has revealed the first teaser trailer for The Mire, an intriguing indie thriller about a cult. Made by Apple Park Films and Familiar Stranger Studios. On the eve of a mass suicide, the charismatic cult leader Joseph Layton must convince his two most loyal followers that he intends to go through with their plans. A battle of wits ensues across one evening. The film stars Antony Knight, Holly McLachlan, and Joseph Adelakun. It's hard to judge based on the little bit of footage in this trailer, but I'm curious to see more. In the meantime, if you're itching for more cult thrillers we'd recommend Midnight Mass if you haven't seen it.
