Francis Ford Coppola’s latest film Twixt is due to premier at the Toronto International Film Festival which runs from September 8th to the 18th, and just the other day the first ever images were revealed.
The film, starring Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern and Ben Chaplin is based on the Gothic horror of Edgar Allen Poe. It tells the story of a burnt out mystery writer (Kilmer) who gets caught up in murder and evil in a Californian town. Here is the synopsis:
A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He’s unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.
