Enter a virtual reality nightmare with the Let's Be Evil trailer

Let's Be Evil Martin Owen

If a filmmaker wants to get me salivating to see their movie, one of the best things they can do is pair an '80s-esque synth score with colorful lighting, and that's exactly what the trailer for L.A. SLASHER director Martin Owen's creepy kids thriller LET'S BE EVIL does.

Scripted by Owen from a story he crafted with Elizabeth Morris that was based on an idea from producer Jonathan Willis, LET'S BE EVIL is described as a "future shock brain bender".

The story:

Desperately in need of money to care for a sick parent, Jenny (Elizabeth Morris) takes a job supervising children at a learning center for gifted students. But when she and two other new employees are ushered into a maximum-security underground bunker where eerily robotic children are outfitted with augmented reality glasses, Jenny finds herself thrust into a disturbing technological experiment in which she is an unwitting player in a terrifying virtual game. 

Co-starring with Morris are Elliot James Langridge, Kara Tointon, and Isabelle Allen.

If you too have a Pavlovian response to retro sound and color-soaked imagery, enjoy the trailer below. If you can resist these things, you're a stronger person than me... or just happen to have different taste.

LET'S BE EVIL will be released on VOD and into select theatres on August 5, 2016.
