A Spanish-language Regression trailer has gone online, and it provides a first look at Alejandro Amenábar‘s upcoming thriller. The movie takes place in Minnesota in 1990, and stars Ethan Hawke as a detective who investigates the case of a young woman (Emma Watson) who accuses her father (David Dencik) of an “unspeakable crime”. The investigation eventually leads to uncovering a “horrifying nationwide mystery.”
While the synopsis made the story sound like something rooted in reality, this trailer shows that the film has more of a stylized bent with people in black, hooded robes, eerie flashlights, and even a crucifix metronome. None of these things are bad, especially with the way Amenábar has shot it, it’s unexpected. It’s also exciting.
Check out the trailer and poster below [via El Septimo Arte]. Hopefully we’ll get a release date and English-language trailer soon.
Here’s the official synopsis for Regression:
Minnesota, 1990. Detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigates the case of young Angela (Emma Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable crime. When John unexpectedly and without recollection admits guilt, renowned psychologist Dr. Raines (David Thewlis) is brought in to help him relive his memories and what they discover unmasks a horrifying nationwide mystery.
