Here we have the poster, a clip and strangely eerie teaser trailer for the psychological thriller DAYLIGHT, which once again pits normal folks against a group of pitiless kidnappers. (Popular genre now, isn't it?) This flick appears to be slightly more cerebral than is common for the genre, if we're going by what we're seeing here.
Directed by David Barker, the film breaks down like this: On their way to a wedding, Danny and Irene pick up a hitchhiker – throwing the film in the direction of the conventional rural kidnapper thriller. But with the skill of director David Barker and his miraculous cast and crew, Daylight emerges as much, much more than just another exploitation picture. Kidnappers Renny, Leo, and Murphy enact a bizarre and terrifying ritual of politeness, endowing such scenes as the passing of a bread knife at a kitchen table with a threat of ferocious violence – but also trust.
The film stars Alexandra Meierhans, Ivan Martin, Michael Godere and Aidan Redmond. It opens in limited release on JULY 15th
