THE GIRL IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS Clip Turns Philosophical
The official synopsis is brief and to the point:
Big-city glamour clashes with small-town values when a celebrity photographer and his entourage descend upon a sleepy community to investigate the bloody doings of a serial killer.
Penn is the celebrity photographer, and in the clip he ruminates, a touch pompously, upon his "artistry." It's tough to get a read on the movie as a whole from the few brief moments here, but the festival describes it as "equal parts an homage to the slasher genre and a clever manipulation of its tropes." Wes Craven served as an executive producer, which is a sign in its favor, as is the presence of the great Dean Cundey as director of photography.
Nick Simon directed. You can watch the clip below.
