Due in UK cinemas on 9th October is one of my most anticipated horror films of the year. Regression is directed by Alejandro Amenabars (The Others) and stars Emma Watson, Ethan Hawke and some extremely sinister happenings.
Devil worship and cults feature heavily in this film, and with the star power of the actors and the immense skills of its director, Regression is going to be one scary as fuck horror. The first clip has just been released, and showcases some chilling events.
Hawke plays detective Kenner who is investigating a horrific crime against Angela (Watson). The impressive and powerful first clip see’s Kenner listening to Angela’s story while walking around the place where it happened, and the flashbacks make for some truly disturbing imagery.
Regression is directed by Alejandro Amenabar (The Others).
Academy Award® nominee Ethan Hawke (Before Midnight, Training Day) and Emma Watson (Noah, Harry Potter) star in the film. REGRESSION sees the return of Amenábar to the genre, where he previously had great success with Dimension Films’ The Others, which grossed over $200 million worldwide.
REGRESSION also stars David Thewlis (The Fifth Estate, Harry Potter), David Dencik (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo), Dale Dickey (Winter’s Bone, “True Blood”), Lothaire Bluteau (“The Tudors”), and Devon Bostick (Diary of a Wimpy Kid).
The creative team includes production designer Carol Spier (Pacific Rim, Eastern Promises), director of photography Daniel Aranyó (The Last Days), costume designer Sonia Grande (The Others, Midnight in Paris), casting director Jina Jay (The Others, The Grand Budapest hotel), and VFX supervisor Felix Bergés (The Impossible, Agora).
REGRESSION is a Spanish-Canadian co-production produced by MOD’s Fernando Bovaira (The Others, Agora, The Sea Inside, Biutiful), Himenóptero’s Alejandro Amenabar (Agora, The Sea Inside), and First Generation Films’ Christina Piovesan (Life, The Whistleblower).
