Another thrilling trailer has been released for the psychological thriller Regression, which stars Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke. I enjoy watching these kinds of films, and this one looks really freakin' good.
The movie was directed by Alejandro Amenábar (The Others), and it tells a dark and fascinating story based on actual events. The story is set in the 1990s, which was a time when kids were accusing their parents of Satanic ritual abuse. The film centers on a father who is accused by his daughter (Watson) of a crime that he has no memory of committing. Hawke plays the detective investigating it, and David Thewlis plays a psychologist who helps with the case. The story will explore whether or not Watson’s claims are true, or if there’s something more sinister to her story that she’s not revealing.
Here's the official synopsis:
Minnesota, 1990. Detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigates the case of young Angela (Emma Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable crime. When John unexpectedly and without recollection admits guilt, renowned psychologist Dr. Raines (David Thewlis) is brought in to help him relive his memories and what they discover unmasks a horrifying nationwide mystery.
The movie will hit theaters on August 28th.
