"Well I don't think it's a dream… I think it's here, in this house." Dark Sky Pictures has revealed an official trailer for an indie horror film titled The Unsettling, marking the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Harry Owens. After premiering at festivals last year, it's finally getting an official release this year. Still recovering from every parent's worst nightmare, a couple seek a new life in picture-perfect suburban USA by traveling to Los Angeles. But the grief they bring with them finds a dark energy in the new home, and soon the promise of their new life turns into series of horrifying visions and strange dreamstate encounters with unspeakable evil… The house they rented slowly begins to stalk them, consuming their sorrow and trapping them in a nightmare. This stars Zephani Idoko, Bambadjan Bamba, Libby Munro, and Benedikt Sebastian. This trailer has some extra scary moments, especially around that dirty mirror. Tread carefully.
