Quick. Name the one supernatural movie trend that you’re most tired of.
Excellent, now see if you can give it one more, distinctly different chance.
The trailer for indie film Daylight Fades looks to take a tortured approach to the vampire story by making it the last resort. In the film, two people meet, fall in love, and then get ripped apart by an accident that leaves one on death’s door in the hospital. There’s a solution, but like most desperate things, the price might be far too high to pay.
Check it out for yourself:
It has a few signs of inexperience and a certain cheapness to the camera work at times, but it has an appeal I can’t quite place my finger on. Maybe because it’s trying to hit the difficult emotional core that major change brings. After all, that’s really what’s at the heart of the vampire story. Becoming a monster isn’t easy, and hopefully this film will really explore that with a bit of depth and consequence.
The flick is directed by Brad Ellis and stars Matthew Stiller and Rachel Miles.
