A Teen Girl Faces Off with Ancient Evil in the Trailer for the New Zealand Film THE CHANGEOVER
Here’s the trailer for an interesting upcoming New Zealand horror film called The Changeover. The story centers on a young teen girl who finds herself facing off with an ancient evil spirt to save her younger brother.
This is more on the low-budget end of spectrum, but it still looks like it tells an interesting story that I’d enjoy. I’m curious to see how this story plays out. Here’s the synopsis:
Sixteen year-old Laura Chant lives with her mother and four-year-old brother Jacko in a poor new suburb on the edge of a partially demolished Christchurch, New Zealand. Laura is drawn into a supernatural battle with an ancient spirit who attacks Jacko and slowly drains the life out of him as the spirit becomes ever younger. Laura discovers her true identity and the supernatural ability within her, and must harness it to save her brother's life.
The Changeover was directed by Miranda Harcourt and Stuart McKenzie, and the film is based on the Carnegie Medal winning novel by Margeret Mahy.
The film opened in New Zealand in late 2017, but it will be released in select US theaters and VOD this coming spring.
