Unsane: Trailer Released

Steven Soderbergh, the legendary director of hits such as Logan Lucky, Contagion, Ocean’s Eleven and Erin Brockovich, is dipping his feet in the horror genre with his new feature Unsane.

The film is Soderbergh’s first foray into horror, and was shot entirely on an iPhone — which Soderbergh has stated to be the “future” of cinema.

These two ‘novelty’sell points are probably enough to attract a lot of buzz on their own, but what is even more intriguing is that the film was treated as a secret project.

Despite having big names attached to the project – Claire Foy, Juno Temple, Jay Pharoah, and horror veteran Amy Irving – little was known about the plot, as the actors and Soderbergh himself remained silent throughout the production and post-production of the film.

When Soderbergh first spoke about the feature, he stated that the shooting, which took less than two weeks, had already been completed and the film was reportedly waiting for a company to release it.

The first official stills were shared earlier this year by the press of the Berlin International Film Festival, and earlier this week the official trailer was released. The trailer depicts a stalking victim as she copes with the memory and anxiety of her trauma, and is committed to a mental institution against her will.

Here she is forced to face her biggest fears, and the audience is left alone to put the puzzle pieces together and find out if her fears are real or if they are a product of her imagination. The premise falls perfectly in the horror genre’s traditional narrative, and combining with Soderbergh’s expertise with psychological thrillers, Unsane is said to be an iPhone version of Get Out.

High praise indeed.

Unsane is scheduled to hit the cinemas on March 23rd and there is not much else for us horror fans to do except wait for its release, and hope that another renowned director finds success in exploring the great possibilities of the horror genre.
