‘Regression’ Trailer: Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson Get Spooked by a Cult
The first trailer for Regression has arrived, the latest film from Academy Award winning director Alejandro Amenábar (The Others), starring Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke. Going off of the international trailer above, the director’s latest horror flick looks just as moody and atmospheric as previous outings, with the added unnerving element of some sinister cult activity.
Regression stars Emma Watson as a young woman being interrogated by a detective (Hawke) about whatever it is that happened to her — as it turns out, she escaped from a cult, but thanks to the detective’s nosing around, they’re not just after her anymore. They’re also coming for him. It’s been a little while since we had a new Amenábar film, and this one looks like it has the potential to be as equally effective and chilling as The Others, if not more so.
Hopefully we’ll get an official U.S. trailer for the film soon.
Here’s the official synopsis for Regression:
Minnesota, 1990. Detective Bruce Kenner (Hawke) investigates the case of young Angela (Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable crime. When John unexpectedly and without recollection admits guilt, renowned psychologist Dr. Raines (David Thewlis) is brought in to help him relive his memories and what they discover unmasks a horrifying nationwide mystery.
Regression hits theaters on August 28.
