Watch The Intense U.S. Trailer For Katrin Gebbe's NOTHING BAD CAN HAPPEN
Take a moment to watch the brand new U.S. trailer for Katrin Gebbe's horror/drama Nothing Bad Can Happen. Drafthouse Films will release the film in U.S. cinemas on June 27th (which means a Canadian stop here in Toronto at tiff Lightbox! Yay!). They have followed up a kick-ass poster release yesterday with an intense trailer today. You can watch the trailer online here.
The young Tore seeks in Hamburg a new life among the religious group called The Jesus Freaks. When he by accident meets a family and helps them to repair their car, he believes that a heavenly wonder has helped him. He starts a friendship with the father of the family, Benno. Soon he moves in with them at their garden plot, not knowing what cruelty is there to come. True to his religious belief he stays with them although the increasing violence by Benno is torturing him. Tore is fighting the torment with his own weapons. So a dangerous struggle between libidinous actions and altruism begins. Inspired by true events.
All I can think of when watching this is the physical presence of Sascha Alexander Gersak as Benno in this. Gosh, he reminds me of Daniel Henshall in Snowtown Murders or Joel Edgerton and Ben Mendelsohn in Animal Kingdom. Just that dominant, aggressive and scary as hell alpha male role.
Cannot wait to see this!
