While The Conjuring films may have rejuvenated the box office viability of the paranormal horror genre, a smaller scale movie, called The Sound, comes to the table with something unique: Rose McGowan and Christopher Llloyd teaming up to battle a malevolent spirit.
The Sound trailer centres on McGowan’s Kelly Johansen, a passionate skeptic of the paranormal who, armed with an expertise in acoustics, utilises soundwaves as the primary tool of reports that she posts online. However, the debunking activities lead her to a case in an abandoned subway – built on a graveyard – in which a purportedly hoaxed suicide occurred 40 years earlier.
Ironically, the case not only uncovers paranormal proof, but makes Kelly the target of a malevolent spirit, forcing her to see disturbing imagery and memories. Joined by caretaker Clinton Jones (Christopher Lloyd), Kelly continues her pursuit of a dangerous truth.
Rose McGowan, the former longtime co-star of Charmed has an interesting starring role on her hands with The Sound. And the co-starring presence of Christopher Lloyd should make for an intriguing team-up. Michael Eklund, Richard Gunn, Jane Moffat and Alex Braunstein also appear.
The Sound is the very first directorial effort of actor-turned-helmer Jenna Mattison, who works off a script she wrote. The indie film, financed by Hackybox Pictures and WeatherVane Productions and distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films, was shot in a Toronto subway station in 2015 and was initially titled Lower Bay.
The Sound does not have a release date, with only a 2017 unveiling hinted. More as we hear it…
