Ben Cresciman will see the World Premiere of his psychothriller Sun Choke at this year’s Stanley Film Festival—just a couple of weeks away—so naturally we’re getting a good look at the Barbara Crampton-starring slice of tormented horror with the film’s first trailer.
The film follows Janie’s quest to recover from a psychological break under the intense care of her lifelong nanny. After developing an obsession with another young woman, Janie quickly veers off the path to recovery and wedges all three women into an ever-tightening, and progressively terrifying struggle for control. The trailer is a moody, slow-burning look at Cresciman’s first foray into the world of horror and it certainly looks like a good one.
Janie’s just trying to get well. As she recovers from a violent psychotic break, she’s subjected each day to a bizarre holistic health and wellness regimen designed, and enforced, by her lifelong nanny and caretaker. She begins to veer off the road to recovery when she develops an obsession with a young woman to whom she feels an inexplicable yet profound connection. The obsession turns increasingly invasive, and wedges all three women into an ever-tightening, and progressively terrifying struggle for control. Will Janie pull herself back from the precipice of insanity? Or go over head-first, taking anyone nearby down with her?
Sun Choke stars Sarah Hagan, Sara Malakul Lane, Barbara Crampton, William Nicol, Evan Jones, Joe Nieves and Jim Boeven.
