Every review I have read for new horror Starry Eyes claim it is one of the years best genre features, and judging by the superb first trailer, I can certainly see why.
The SXSW trailer can be seen below, along with a few new images and an awesome poster for the film, revealed yesterday by EW.
Starry Eyes is written and directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, Alexandra Essoe, Amanda Fuller, Fabianne Therese, Noah Segan, Pat Healy and Shane Coffey star.
Determined to make it as an actress in Hollywood, Sarah Walker (Alexandra Essoe) spends her days working a dead-end job, enduring petty friendships and going on countless casting calls in hopes of catching her big break. After a series of strange auditions, Sarah lands the leading role in a new film from a mysterious production company. But with this opportunity comes bizarre ramifications that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful… and altogether terrifying. In this meta-tale of the extent one will go for their art, Essoe gives a complex, scary, deeply committed performance. From the producer of CHEAP THRILLS and JODOROWSKY’S DUNE, Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch’s STARRY EYES is an occult tale of ambition, possession, and the true cost of fame.
