Writer and director Rodrigo Gudino’s creepy spiritual horror, The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh, is heading to Cannes. In celebration of this, and hoping to drum up interest, a short and sweet teaser trailer has been released, and we have it for you thanks to Bloody Disgusting.
I must say the trailer is superb, ultra creepy and full of just the kind of atmosphere I love in horror. A good religious horror is always welcome in my book, and this film looks worthy of mine, and your, excitement!
With films about ghosts and haunted houses always a hit with horror fans, Gudino’s effort should expect some strong results. The film looks to be a very serious, and very dark affair that will please fans looking for the more chilling and sinister side to horror. ‘Small Town Murder Songs’ star Aaron Poole plays the lead character, and he will be joined by Academy Award winning actress Vanessa Redgrave, Julian Richings (X-Men: The Last Stand), Stephen Eric McIntyre (The Lookout), Charlotte Sullivan (Population 436) and cult TV star Mitch Markowitz (The Hilarious House of Frankenstein).
“The film centers on an antiques collector who inherits a house from his estranged mother only to discover that she had been living in a shrine devoted to a mysterious cult of angels. As night falls, he comes to suspect that his mother’s oppressive spirit still lingers within her home and is using items in the house – especially the statues of angels – to contact him with an urgent message. The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh will feature a strikingly original narrative technique that glimpses into what the psychology of spirits.”
