Film fans can take a sneak peek of writer and director Gregory Blair’s Deadly Revisions, with the teaser trailer released this week. Tight and tense, the teaser reveals just enough footage to get audiences excited for this film’s unique blend of psychological thriller and horror elements.
In the film, Emmy Award winning actor and horror movie favorite Bill Oberst, Jr. appears as Grafton Torn. Torn is an amnesiac horror film writer for whom hypnotherapy and nightmares reveal terrifying images that cannot be real. Or can they? With an unreliable narrator, the audience will have to keep re-evaluating the information onscreen to find the answer. This slow burn script piles on increasingly unexpected plot twists. And, in Deadly Revisions, remembering can be murder!
A bloody valentine to the horror genre, the trailer shows some of the spooky staples horror fans adore, including: dark passageways, creaking floorboards and things lurking in the shadows. Through the combination of these elements, our hero examines his past, just as the film examines the art of the horror genre itself and its own values as a fun and safe place to confront our fears.
Deadly Revisions has already garnered Blair the EOTM Award for “Best Director of an Indie Horror Film” and reviewers have lauded it as “Amazing” (Chris Mackey, GuestStars Blog) and “Mind Blowing” (Char Hardin, Charred Remains Blogpost).
