The trailer and Comic-Con poster have gone online for Charles de Lauzirika‘s psychological noir Crave. The film stars Josh Lawson as a crime scene photographer who begins to fall deeper into his dark fantasies about becoming a vigilante who can save the world from evil. Judging by the trailer, I like the contrast between Lawson’s gentle, everyman look (he comes off as a guy you could chill out with at a party), and the violent, aggressive character he’s portraying.
Crave will have a panel in Hall H tomorrow, July 11th with de Lauzirika and Lawson presenting the trailer along with an exclusive 7-minute clip from the movie. Attendees will also be getting the limited edition Comic-Con poster while supplies last. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars Emma Lung, Edward Furlong, and Ron Perlman. Crave will world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal on July 24.

Ron Perlman (“Hellboy”), Josh Lawson (“$quid: The Movie”), and Emma Lung (“The Boys Are Back”) have all signed on to Charles de Lauzirkia’s indie thriller, “Crave”. According to THR, the story “centers on a troubled photographer (Lawson) whose dangerous visions wreak havoc when his romance with a young woman (Lung) ends and he is pursued by a world-weary detective (Perlman).” I love the “troubled photographer” character because I always like to imagine him down at Sears about to take a family’s Christmas photo and suddenly he screams, “The demons are coming to rape us all!” And isn’t that really what Christmas is all about?
This is de Lauzirkia’s feature debut which he also co-wrote the script with Robert Lawton (“Sex & Sushi”). If you don’t know who de Lauzirika is, take a look at the DVDs and Blu-rays on your shelf. You see the ones with the greatest extra content? Lauzirika probably did those. He is responsible for the special features on such DVDs as the “Alien Quadrilogy”, “Blade Runner”, “Kingdom of Heaven: 4-Disc Director’s Cut”, “Spider-Man 2″, “Twin Peaks” and many other special edition DVDs and Blu-rays that should be in your collection if you cherish additional content. We wish him well on his directorial debut.
