“Hidden” Trailer


Director: Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer (as Duffer Brothers)

Starring: Alexander Skarsgård, Andrea Riseborough, Emily Alyn Lind, Heather Doerksen

Synopsis: A man, his wife, and his daughter have made themselves a home living in an underground fallout shelter for months to escape the apocalyptic horrors on the Earth’s surface, but now that terror has found them.

Notes: We’ve seen this before. A minimal-location post-apocalyptic horror film about a “monster/monsters” that survivors must now evade. But this trailer does a spectacular job of concealing what this evil presence is. Despite my own speculations, I’m wholly intrigued by the concept, the gritty art direction, and the emotions that could arise around a family building a makeshift life in such a doomed prison.
