This trailer for THE GIFT will leave you crying Simon Says

1 min read


I do love thrillers. I also like thrillers in the vein of the The hand that Rocks the Cradle or Misery, you know, the obsessive type of lunatics that could very well be someone you know, like Kervyn for example… The Gift (no, not the supernatural 2000 movie of the same name) comes from writer and director Joel Edgerton (Warrior) who also plays the far too ‘clingy’ friend alongside Jason Bateman (Arrested Development)  and Rebecca Hall (Transcendence). I suppose if you let in a friend you can’t remember from your past you might be asking for trouble, which is why I have never entertained the idea of having any friends at all. At least I am safe! The Gift is not the most original of ideas but with Oscar nominee Producer Jason Blum (Whiplash) behind it you can be sure it’s going to be something special. Have a watch of the trailer and remember to never invite in old chums who you can’t quite remember:

Looks like fun, don’t you think? The Gift is set to land on 31 July. Interestingly the The Gift is known in Hollywood as Weirdo, which I find rather ironic…

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
