Haunting new trailer for Starry Eyes makes a sacrifice

How far would you go to be a star?

The psychologically twisted occult horror tale Starry Eyes is less than a month away from its release, where we’ll finally be able see for ourselves what all the hype is about. Directing duo Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer have already made a huge splash in the genre and their film hasn’t even been released yet. That should tell you something about the impact Starry Eyes has had during its festival run.

The trailer is great, playing a lot like how I would expect the film to as it starts off slowly building towards the inevitable downfall of a beautiful young actress as she descends into the madness of Hollywood hell. It’s a truly haunting trailer that only further proves that Starry Eyes has earned its rightful spot on the list of must-see horror films of the year.

Alexandra Essoe takes the lead in this one as a young woman living in Hollywood who makes a dark, transformative decision. The film hits select theaters and VOD on November 14th from Dark Sky Films.

Determined to make it as an actress in Hollywood, Sarah Walker spends her days working a dead-end job, enduring petty friendships and going on countless casting calls in hopes of catching her big break. After a series of strange auditions, Sarah lands the leading role in a new film from a mysterious production company. But with this opportunity comes bizarre ramifications that will transform her both mentally and physically into something beautiful… and altogether terrifying.

Amanda Fuller, Fabianne Therese, Noah Segan, Pat Healy and Shane Coffey also star.

    1. Hell yeah! Comes out really soon, too. It’s one of those festival movies that people won’t shut up about. Can’t wait to see it.

      1. Yeah by the sounds of it, this is one that is going to possibly take some time getting to Knoxville, Tennessee. Haha. I think it’ll be worth the wait, though.

      2. No way, dude. If you have internet (which you do, duh) you can catch it on iTunes/Amazon/any other VOD outlet next week on the 14th.

      3. I actually do not have a solid internet connection. I have to go to Starbucks and other places for that. It suckssss!!@!!!!

      4. By having to skimp out on a lot of blogging sessions. . . haha. It’s rough right now, no lie.

        Hopefully within a couple weeks (maybe months) this situation will resolve itself. This might explain my recent lack of activity on your site, too!

      5. Well, at least when you do get it all sorted out you’ll have plenty of cool films to catch up on to keep you busy!

  1. This is an interesting premise, and no doubt metaphorical for some of the lives/careers Hollywood has ruined. I wonder if many who’ve tried to make it in Hollywood will see this and think sardonically, “Welcome to my life.”

    (You’ll have to excuse me. Am in a bit of a philosophical mood this afternoon…)

    1. You’re spot on. The film doesn’t try to hide its message at all, really. It’s all about the temptation of fame and what some weak-minded people are willing to do for it.
