NINA FOREVER Trailer Teases One Fucked up Fairy Tale

     May 15, 2015


One of my favorite films from SXSW just got a trailer! Chris and Ben Blaine’s feature debut, Nina Forever, stars Abigail Hardingham as Holly, a paramedic-in-training who’s got a thing for a guy named Rob (Cian Barry) and the two of them actually wind up hitting it off. Trouble is, Rob’s dead ex-girlfriend Nina (Fiona O’Shaughnessy) doesn’t appreciate him moving on so the first night Rob and Holly sleep together, she returns to let them know how she feels about it.

As you’ll see in the Nina Forever trailer, I think it’s “a superb horror movie in every respect.” (Read my full review from SXSW here.) Similar to the film itself, this promo does a stellar job balancing the eeriness of the situation with some spot-on humor. Epic Pictures Group is currently at the Cannes market with the film, so hopefully the next Nina Forever article we post will be telling you that it scored distribution. For now, check out the film’s trailer below and good luck getting that song out of your head after.

Here’s the official synopsis for Nina Forever:

HOLLY wants to save ROB, has fallen in love with him. She is training to be a paramedic and works a dead end job in a supermarket where Rob is the only remarkable thing. Lost and angry since the death of his girlfriend NINA.


Drawn into a relationship, the first time they’re in bed together so is Nina. A tangled and bloody mess of broken limbs, she is very much dead but still here, still talking, still angry…


However Holly doesn’t freak out and run – she is determined to be the one who heals Rob’s wounds. She can deal with the dead girl sharing their bed, their lives, their minds. If it’s what Rob needs, it’s what Holly will do, whatever the consequences…
