New Trailers: “Hush,” “Holidays,” “Asylum”

Following a screening at the SXSW film festival, a new trailer is out for the horror tale “Hush”, a kind of modern homage to 1967’s “Wait Until Dark” but swapping out blindness for deafness and making it more of a straight horror tale.

Kate Siegel plays a deaf recluse living her life in an isolated house. She begins to receive ominous text messages and realises a man in a terrifying white mask has been watching her. So begins a terrifying ordeal where she must fight for her very survival against an intruder who has a sensory advantage over her.

That’s not the only festival film scoring a preview today. Vertical Entertainment and XYZ Films have landed global distribution rights to horror anthology “Holidays” which premieres April 14th at the Tribeca Film Festival. It will hit VOD the day after followed by a theatrical release on April 22nd.

The likes of Kevin Smith, Gary Shore, Scott Stewart, Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, Sarah Adina Smith, Nicholas McCarthy, Adam Egypt Mortimer and Anthony Scott Burns lend their talents to this group of subversive tales fashioned around holidays.

For a film of a very different flavour, check out the official trailer for Oscar-winning filmmaker Eva Orner’s documentary “Chasing Asylum”. The feature sports never before seen footage from inside Australia’s offshore detention camps which have become a powder keg for public debate.
