The new trailer for co-writer and director Charles de Lauzirika’s debut feature, Crave, is now online. The dramatic thriller stars Josh Lawson (House of Lies) as Aiden, a crime scene photographer who turns to his active imagination in order to escape the horrors of his environment. One part Pan’s Labyrinth and one part Dexter, this trailer hints that there’s much more to Aiden’s dark fantasies than pure imagination.
Also starring Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Emma Lung (Triangle) and Edward Furlong (Terminator 2: Judgment Day), Crave will be available on VOD and in theaters December 6th. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.
Aiden (Josh Lawson) craves a better life. A life away from his gruesome job as a crime scene photographer, working alongside his detective friend Pete (Ron Perlman). A meaningful life where he can escape the hard streets of Detroit, fall in love with the perfect woman and save the world from evil. As Aiden’s dark imagination starts to leak into reality, he meets Virginia (Emma Lung), a younger woman with her own dilemmas and desires. Estranged from her boyfriend Ravi (Edward Furlong,) Virginia explores an uncertain relationship with Aiden, who becomes increasingly emboldened to live out his vigilante fantasies. But as Virginia is faced with the disturbing truth of Aiden’s inner life, Aiden learns that he will pay a terrible price for his twisted imagination.
CRAVE marks the feature directing debut of award-winning film documentarian Charles de Lauzirika (“Blade Runner,” “Twin Peaks,” Alien Anthology.)
