Now, this is what Ghostbusters 2 should have been all about. This could be the scariest movie of 2019
“After a series of paintings by an unknown artist are discovered, a supernatural force enacts revenge on those who have allowed their greed to get in the way of art.”
So Netflix decided to drop an atomic bomb of a movie trailer today. Talk about coming out of nowhere. From the writer and director of the illusive creepy thriller Nightcrawler, he’s back with his pal Jake Gyllenhaal. Jake is bringing a ton of other great talents with him though. John Malkovich, Billy Magnussen, Toni Colette, Renee Russo, and Daveed Diggs. This looks like a surreal hypnotic scare the pants off you horror film.
This doesn’t look like most horror films, it’s bright and colorful in most scenes, with a vibe that feels different. At the beginning of the trailer, I had no idea this was going to turn out to be a horror movie. Packed cast and a director that has shown promise in the past, this could be another hit for Netflix. Jake went full-on psycho the last time these two teamed up, and it appears he’s dipping back into the insane asylum.
Dropping in a mere few weeks, they must feel confident, but I also guess Netflix doesn’t need a whole lot of promotion to have a success on their hands. No one knew what Bird Box was until it came out, and before we knew it, the whole world was talking about it. Netflix is becoming more powerful as the days past it seems. They have massive hits dropping every month it feels like, and I can’t decide if it’s a good thing or not. People will flock towards this so quickly, and its word of mouth will spread like wildfire if it turns out to be great.
