We've been keeping tabs on Chad Archibald's THE DROWNSMAN, bringing you the first trailer for the creepy looking supernatural tale back in May. We recently learned that the flick will have its world premiere at Fantasia on August 2 at 5:15 p.m. in the renovated DB Clark Theatre, and now we have a new trailer to mark the occasion that certainly sells me on wanting to check this badboy out. Plus the titular villain is just damn creepy. Methinks I'd be staying away from bathtubs, pools, sinks, and showers if he was after my ass.
Here's the synopsis for THE DROWNSMAN:
After almost drowning in a lake, Madison finds herself bound to a life of fear. Unable to describe what happened to her during the moments she was underwater, Madison begins to develop hydrophobia: an abnormal fear of water. Crippled by her post trauma, Madison attempts to shut out the world around her but, her fear intensifies when she begins to be haunted by the vision of an evil figure. After watching her struggle for over a year, Madison’s four friends stage an intervention in a desperate attempt to help. In doing so, they accidentally open a floodgate to a dark place where none of them are safe. As Madison and her friends dive deeper into the dark historyof the evil that haunts them, they’re dragged one by one to a horrifying place where they may never return.
THE DROWNSMAN was directed by Chad Archibald and written by Cody Calahan and Archibald. It stars Michelle Mylett, Caroline Korycki, Gemma Bird Matheson, Sydney Kondruss, Clare Bastable and Ry Barrett.
