A couple of new horror trailers have just been released, and both are pretty impressive.
First up is the latest found footage shocker, and this one actually looks pretty decent. Apocalyptic is directed by Glenn Triggs (41, Cinemaphobia), and the first trailer features plenty of the usual found footage cliches blended with some eerie religious themes and some torture thrown in for good measure.
The film was shot in just five days, and cost $10,000, which is a mighty achievement. The cast includes Lauren Adams, Jane Elizabeth Barry, Cameron Box, Frederique Fouche and Chris Gibson.

Anna (formerly Mindscape)
It appears that the Jaume Collet-Serra produced horror, Mindscape, has been granted a new title. The film is now simply known as Anna, and a new trailer and poster have been released.
The film stars Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story), Mark Strong (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), and Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy), and has been produced by Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan, House of Wax). Mindscape is directed by Jorge Dorado.
John (Strong) is a recently widowed man with the ability to enter people’s memories. In the past John used his abilities to solve criminal cases, but after a stroke during a session gone wrong that left him incapacitated and financially broken, he is but a shell of his former self.
Desperate for an assignment, John asks his superior, Sebastian, for a new job. The case he receives is that of a troubled girl, Anna (Farmiga), who has begun a hunger strike. While the parameters of the job seem quite simple, Anna proves to be much more challenging than John expected. She’s intelligent, insightful… and possibly one of the most conniving and manipulative people that he’s come across in his career.
As John delves deeper into her memories to discover the reason for her hunger strike, everyone surrounding Anna’s life becomes a suspect – her family, her nurse, even his old mentor Sebastian himself.
