Wes Craven's final production, THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS, has dropped one more clip before its limited theatrical and VOD release tomorrow, and boy is it a doozy. It's definitely a darker clip than the slasher-esque one we got to see yesterday, pulling more from the unsettling torture films like HOSTEL or even THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE.
Obviously, it has more humor than the bleak torture porn genre, but I'm not really sure what to make of this one. Check it out below and see for yourself!
THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS centers on Colleen, whose
life isn’t going anywhere. The small town check out girl with natural beauty is bored with her dead end job and annoyed by her apathetic boyfriend. This isn’t the life she wanted. In the midst of her turmoil, a pair of deranged serial killers begin leaving her photos of their mutilated victims.
Her chance to escape comes in the form of Peter Hemmings, a hipster celebrity photographer who has traveled back to his hometown of Spearfish, South Dakota, with a pack of models, intent on copying the killers’ intense and unapologetic artistry. When he learns Colleen is the killers’ muse, Peter resolves to make her his own and use her as the centerpiece of a photo campaign in Los Angeles.
But before Colleen can leave her old life behind, she must contend with the desires of her murderous stalkers who have chosen her last night in town to execute their most provocative work to date.
THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS was directed by Nick Simon. Kal Penn, Claudia Lee, Kenny Wormald, Toby Hemingway, Luke Baines, Miranda Rae Mayo, Katharine Isabelle, and Mitch Pileggi star.
