Timecrimes and V/H/S: Viral director Nacho Vigalondo has returned with the voyeuristic thriller Open Windows, which stars Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey in a fan-stalks-celebrity game of cat and mouse that seems to be spurred on by a faceless psychopath. Vigalondo has always been an interesting director, so I’m eager to check this one out (you can also read Perri’s review of the film out of SXSW).
This brief theatrical trailer adds a kinetic quality to the material that seemed to be missing from the promotional materials thus far. I’m hoping the movie lives up to it because, from the looks of this, it could actually be pretty satirical and fun. Hit the jump for the Open Windows trailer and images. Cinedigm releases the film on VOD and Digital Download on October 2nd with a limited theatrical run scheduled for November 7th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Open Windows:
Oscar®-nominated writer-director Nacho Vigalondo (The ABCs of Death, Extraterrestrial, V/H/S Viral) creates an action-packed world of voyeurism and suspense in his thriller OPEN WINDOWS. Nick (Elijah Wood, Maniac, The Lord of the Rings) is excited to discover that he’s won a dinner date with his favorite actress, Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey, Would You Rather, The Girlfriend Experience). But when Jill refuses to honor the contest, her manager Chord (Neil Maskell, Wild Bill, Pusher) makes an offer he can’t refuse: the ability to view Jill secretly via computer. Nick begins watching the unknowing star on her webcam, not realizing that this decision will put both himself and Jill at risk as they enter a terrifying world of cat-and-mouse where nothing-and no one-are as they seem.
