Back in April, I brought you news about a new project starring Donnie Darko actor, James Duval. Ramzi Abed's official movie teaser for the "darkly romantic horror ensemble mystery" Noirland is now available. If you've been waiting to see Duval deliver another disturbing performance then this should quench your thirst.
Duval plays a catatonic serial killer who is put under deep hypnosis in order to free his last victim, and help him come to terms with the sadistic sexual acts he is responsible for. Meanwhile, an amnesiac detective searching for a serial killer, finds out he is the prime suspect. Mysteries unfold. The cast for the film is pretty interesting: Rena Riffel (Showgirls, Dark Reel), Twink Caplan (Clueless, In Search of a Midnight Kiss), Jesse Hlubik (May, Violent Blue), Elissa Dowling (Dread), Ford Austin (Dahmer Vs. Gacy), Wendy McColm (Suzie Heartless), Eric Fleming (In A Spiral State), Lenora Claire (The Devil's Muse), Clint Catalyst (Portland), Victor Fischbarg (The Mod F*ck Explosion, Scumrock), Hollie Stevens (Enter The Peepshow), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger), Adam Meir (In A Spiral State), Lorielle New (The Pit and the Pendulum, Postal), and Silvia Suvadova (Violent Blue, Kolya) among others.
You can check out the trailer after the jump, which reminds me of a cross between David Lynch and Tarsem Singh's The Cell. Let me know if you find the surreal, dark imagery in the trailer as curious as I do. And be sure to check out some of Abed's other work, including Telephone World.
