A striking and beautiful trailer has been released for The Trace We Leave Behind AKA O Rastro. The film follows a physician who has to deal with a missing patient who vanishes without a trace. As he searches for the truth he is drawn into a supernatural mystery that blurs his ability to distinguish between reality and fantasy.
Set against Brazil’s roiling social unrest and centres on bright, recently-promoted doctor Joao, who is tasked with coordinating the overnight transfer of patients when yet another public hospital is closed in Rio. When a young girl patient goes missing, he tries to locate her, and is gradually drawn into a world he wishes he had never entered.
The trailer is filled with glorious imagery that is reminiscent of J-Horror and effectively creates an atmosphere laced with dread and quiet menace. We love the simple blue tones of the visual style that emphasise the appropriately supernatural and fantastical feel to the film. It’s certainly piqued our interest and if the full-length film can deliver the scares and eerie atmosphere that this trailer promises, we could be in for a striking horror.
The Trace We Leave Behind will be released in Brazil in April 2017. Hopefully international release dates will be revealed soon, because we can’t wait to watch this one!
