From writer/director Julien Magnat, comes the French-Canadian horror/thriller FACES IN THE CROWD, starring Milla Jovovich. It has been quite a long while since we've heard anything about the this one. Well the film has a brand new international trailer, and it is all sorts of messed up and creepy.
A serial killer who has been terrorizing the city. An innocent bystander witnesses his latest attack, but while fleeing, she falls from a bridge and is knocked unconscious. When she awakes in the hospital, she can''t recognize family, her boyfriend or even her own face in the mirror. She is diagnosed with prosopagnosia, or ''face blindness''. This is a real neurological disorder, like dyslexia but with faces, caused by a lesion of the temporal lobe, the part of the brain that allows us in a heartbeat to compare someone's face with all the faces stored in our memory.
She is incapable of recognizing the same face twice. Every time she looks at someone, it's like she's never met them before. Being the only witness, she is hunted by the killer, leaving her paranoid in a sea of unfamiliar faces. Where can she turn? Who can she trust? Who is she waking up next to? Who is standing next to her? This suspense thriller takes us on a terrifying ride thru the blurry eyes of a woman searching for a monster amongst the faces in the crowd.
Jovovich stars alongside Julian McMahon, Sarah Wayne Callies, Michael Shanks, Sandrine Holt, Marianne Faithful, Valentina Vargas, Adam Harrington, Anthony Lemke and Sebastien Roberts. The film currently does not have a release date, but we’ll be keeping our eyes open.
