New Trailer for Gothic-Tinged Horror 'She Will' Set in Rural Scotland
"I'm having dark thoughts." IFC Midnight has revealed an official trailer for an indie horror from the UK titled She Will, arriving in US theaters starting this July in the middle of the summer. This premiered at the 2021 Locarno Film Festival, and also played at the Overlook, Sitges, and London Film Festivals last year. The film explores the story of Veronica Ghent, who after a double mastectomy, goes to a healing retreat in rural Scotland with her young nurse Desi. She discovers that the process of such surgery opens up questions about her very existence, leading her to start to question and confront past traumas. The two develop an unlikely bond as mysterious forces give Veronica the power to enact revenge within her dreams. Described as: "An inventive and provocative directorial debut, with #MeToo resonance, She Will is a timely feminist critique, identifying Charlotte Colbert as one of horror's most exciting new filmmaking voices." This stars Alice Krige, Kota Eberthardt, Malcolm McDowell, and Rupert Everett. With a score composed by Clint Mansell. Presented by Dario Argento, with an Alfonso Cuaron quote in here. Definitely worth a look.
