Evolution trailer teases mysterious medical procedures

Lucile Hadzihalilovic Evolution

Director Lucile Hadzihalilovic's Spain-shot, French-language horror film EVOLUTION appears to be incredibly moody and atmospheric, as well as deeply strange. We shared an international trailer for the film a while back, and while it had great audio and visuals, it revealed absolutely nothing about the film's story. A new trailer, embedded below, does pull back the curtain a bit, but only slightly. It offers some dialogue exchanges and provides a tease of scenarios and characters, but the marketing is still making sure this one remains very mysterious.

Hadzihalilovic wrote the screenplay with Alanté Kavaïté and Geoff Cox, crafting a story that centers on 

ten-year-old Nicolas, who lives in a remote seaside village populated only by boys his age and adult women. When he makes a disturbing discovery beneath the ocean waves — a dead boy with a red starfish on his stomach — Nicolas begins to question everything about his existence. What are the half-remembered images he recalls, as if from another life? If the woman he lives with is not his mother, then who is she? And what awaits the boys when they are all suddenly confined to a hospital? 

The film stars Max Brebant, Roxane Duran, Julie-Marie Parmentier, and Mathieu Goldfeld.

All of EVOLUTION's secrets will soon be revealed, as IFC Midnight has scheduled it for a VOD and theatrical release on November 25th.
