Soaking in the glory of multiple awards, the thrill-seeking horror “Ghostland” (aka Incident in a Ghost Land) is set to show us why it’s captivating and mind-boggling story is a must-watch horror film this 2018. With versatile actress Crystal Reed (“Teen Wolf”) as the main lead.
The film begins with a mother and her two daughters inheriting an old house, during their first night in their new home, murderers enter the home, putting Colleen in a situation where she must fight to save her daughters’ lives. When the girls suffer a terrible trauma during the night, their disparate personalities diverge even further.
The eldest daughter, Beth (Reed), becomes a famous horror author with a perfect family and life in Los Angeles, while her sister, Vera (Anastasia Philips), can’t cope, and loses her mind to an unshakable sense of paranoia. Sixteen years later the daughters and mother reunite at the house where Colleen and Vera continue to reside. It is then that strange events begin to take place.
Filled with horrific sound effects, jump scares and scary dolls, it leads us to ask ourselves, are our own demons define the horror in our lives? Or do the horror stories exist beyond the lines of fiction books?
The film won the Public Prize and the Grand Prize at the 2018 Festival international du film fantastique de Gérardmer, a horror and science-fiction film festival held in France since 1994.
Director Pascal Laugier who also directed the 2009 critically-acclaimed horror film “Martyrs” can’t wait for the public to see his newest masterpiece. ‘“Incident In A Ghost Land”’ is also the expression of the return of the repressed and perhaps of my ‘darkest side,”
“Beth lives with their ghosts, they speak to her, she wants to join them in excellence. I feel like this type of admiration and self-construction for someone in a society that is very derision-driven and tends to make the feeling of admiration somewhat ridiculous,” said Laugier.
The film co-stars Emilia Jones (“Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides”), Anastasia Philips (“Lucky 7”), Taylor Hickson (“Deadpool”), and Mylene Farmer.
“Ghostland” is set to scare everyone to their seats starting March 31 (Black Saturday) and is distributed by Axinite Digicinema.
