New Life teaser trailer: Sonya Walger, Hayley Erin horror thriller is making the festival rounds

A teaser trailer offers a look at the cat and mouse horror thriller New Life, which is currently making the festival rounds

Nearly a year and a half has passed since we heard that Sonya Walger (For All Mankind) had signed on to star in the cat and mouse horror thriller New Life with Hayley Erin of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, and Tony Amendola – who was in both the Conjuring Universe film Annabelle and the Conjuring Universe adjacent The Curse of La Llorona. New Life recently made its premiere at the Fantasia film festival, where our own Tyler Nichols got to check it out, resulting in a 7/10 review you can read HERE. We included the teaser trailer in that review, but just in case you overlooked it, this seemed like a good time to put a spotlight on it, since New Life is now set to screen at FrightFest in London in just a week and a half, on Friday, August 25th.

This film marks the feature debut of writer/director John Rosman. It tells the story of “a deadly cat and mouse game in the Pacific Northwest”, with Walger is taking on the role of Elsa, a brilliant ‘fixer’ assigned to capture a mysterious woman on the run. As the snare of the pursuit tightens, Elsa must fight her own secret battle with the deadly disease ALS to stay on top of the explosive case, before it reaches an apocalyptic endgame. As their two stories interlink, the stakes ratchet up, and their journeys uncover the deep truths of what it means to be alive. And that can only come through the power of acceptance and hope.

Ayanna Berkshire (Sometimes I Think About Dying), Nick George (Good Girls Revolt), Blaine Palmer (Gone), and Jeb Berrier (I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore) are also in the cast.

New Life was produced by T. Justin Ross and Mike Marchlewski, with David Lawson Jr. serving as the executive producer.
