“The Offering” Gives Us New Trailer And Stills
Horror seems to be on a roll this year. Be it the critically acclaimed The Witch scaring audiences or films such as The Boy playing on a few thousand screens, it is hard to argue a forward momentum for our beloved genre. Even indie darlings such as Mickey Keating’s Darling are being given a wonderful treatment when it comes to theatrical release and attention. Today we bring you the news of a brand new original intriguing horror film due out in May.
Singapore director Kelvin Tong is bringing what looks to be a frightening addition to the horror of 2016 with The Offering previously titled as The Faith of Anna Waters. The synopsis reads as follows:
When successful reporter Jamie (Elizabeth Rice) finds out that her sister has died mysteriously, she travels to Singapore to uncover the truth. There, she discovers multiple deaths linked to her sister and must join forces with her sister’s husband (Matthew Settle) in order to defeat a demonic entity that is using new technology to complete an ancient mission.
Tong‘s previous credits are not vast but sure pack a punch. His credits are eclectic in style and type but horror is a constant within a few comedies and action films. This particular story for The Offering seems like a first for Tong. The freshness of his vision will be warmly welcomed in the demonic entity ghost story. View the trailer and still below, where you will see the disturbing imagery and intensity needed for such a sub genre within horror.
Today We Are Indie Horror has an exclusive still from the film, the poster (seen above), and the trailer (seen below). Not much else is known on this film and honestly that might be for the best. Mystery surrounding horror should remain a necessity within the genre. It will draw more audiences out of the sheer human trait of curiosity. The Offering has absolutely grabbed the attention of the WAIH team. Does the trailer do it for you? Let us know in the comments below.
The Offering is expected in limited theaters and on VOD on May 6, 2016 by way of Momentum Pictures.
