You’ll never want to know who or what those bumps in the night belong to after watching the trailer for Robert Hamilton’s indie chiller The Suffering, a psychological tale of haunted houses and mad minds. It’s a film that has been mostly under the radar, which is hard to believe considering just how good it looks.
The trailer is tightly wrapped in a dark atmosphere, one that crawls to life with nightmarish visuals and an unnerving sense of dread. While it’s only a small taste of the film, the trailer offers a fantastic look at what The Suffering has to offer, in that it appears to be heavy on the practical effects and very character driven. Our first look at Hamilton’s haunted house tale is certainly a good one, that’s for sure.
Marco V. Scola and Hamilton wrote the film, which is about:
Henry Dawles is at a cross roads in life. A diminished bank account and baby on the way with his estranged wife, has his personal life in shambles. When Mr. Remiel, an elderly shut in, offers Henry a lucrative sum to appraise his rural estate, he accepts without hesitation.
What follows is a harrowing exploration of mind and madness. A journey through an estate as vast and beautiful as it is secretive and horrific. When Henry closes in on the lands’ dark truth, Remiel’s eccentric behavior takes a menacing and unforgettable turn.
In this twisted tale of morality and redemption, Henry must confront the terrors of his present while coming to terms with the horrors of his past.
The Suffering stars Nick Apostolides, Elizabeth Deo, Phil Amico, Lee Hamilton, Chad Eric Smith, and Regen Wilson. The film is currently in search of a distributor and should be hitting the festival circuit soon, so hang in there for a release date.
