Here's an ominous new clip from the Fantastic Fest selection Horsehead (Fievre)
Romain Basset's art-horror tale of family secrets and lucid dreams. Or rather, lucid nightmares, if this clip and the previously released trailer
are any indication. In this scene, a girl discovers a notebook full of creepy drawings and foreboding messages, which, based on the still above, you can probably be sure will all come back to haunt her in the real world later. Check out the synopsis and clip below. The film will screen Tuesday, September 23 at Fantastic Fest.
Since her childhood, Jessica has been haunted by recurrent nightmares whose meaning escapes her. This peculiarity has led her to study the psychophysiology of dreams to try and understand the origin of her nightmares.
Following the death of her grandmother she hardly knew, Jessica reluctantly returns to the family home. She doesn't get along with her mother very well and is not looking forward to seeing her again. Upon her arrival, Jessica discovers that her late grandmother is lying in the adjoining room to her own during the wake.
After a rough first night made restless by a strange nightmare in which she meets her dead grandmother, Jessica suddenly becomes ill. Stuck in bed with a high fever, the young woman decides to use her lethargic state to try out lucid dreaming. In order to do so, Jessica breathes a little bit of ether whenever she needs to sink deeper into the other world to try and take control of her nightmares.
Jessica then begins to wander in a nightmarish world inhabited by twisted versions of her family members. She gradually improves her skills as a lucid dreamer and investigates to solve the mystery that gnaws her and haunts the family home.
