You have to admit there is a strong connection with director Micah Levin’s Opus and the superb Cube. A bunch of strangers stuck and having to figure a way out as they slowly die one by one. Check out the rather horrible trailer for Opus below and see for yourself. It looks like a pretty cool horror with plenty of twists, turns and double crossing, and there is also a very strong horror element to the film. Sadly we don’t have a release date yet, but enjoy the trailer and the synopsis follows:
When the cast of OPUS arrives to an empty house in the desert, none suspect foul play. After all, each of the seven cast members were hand-picked from online submission videos to be part of an unscripted horror film. But as their cast mates start to turn up murdered, the actors begin to turn on one another. The house is locked down from the outside, and the cast scrabbles to find the truth. Finally, they realize that the film is real, and that their deaths are being recorded by the killer himself – the Director.
