If you like surreal, cerebral, black and white trailers with a lot of flashing and a splash of disturbing imagery, then you’re going to love this teaser from Darling. The film comes from director Mickey Keating – whose film Pod was recently screened at SXSW and FrightFest – and stars Lauren Ashley Carter (Jug Face).
Darling follows a young woman who takes a job as a cleaner at a mansion, replacing a girl who committed suicide. Soon, she starts to lose her mind and descend in to madness herself. This element is easily conveyed in the teaser; the relentless flashing symbolising her non-stop fight to remain sane, and the disturbing images giving us a tease of the horrors to come.
Take a look at the great trailer below and be sure to catch Darling at Fantastic Fest on 26th October or at the Mile High Horror Film Festival on 3rd October in the USA.
