We're not going anywhere in this trailer for AFFLICTED

2 min read


A movie trailer is relatively simple to make these days. Set up your characters, throw in just enough exposition, add a money-shot before the end and wham bam thank you ma’am, you’re done. This trailer for Afflicted however? It’s already starting at the end and working its way backwards.

And for this super-powered horror, it’s pretty damn effective.

This terrifying horror thriller follows two best friends who set out on the trip of a lifetime around the world. Their journey, documented every step of the way, soon takes a dark and unexpected turn after an encounter with a beautiful woman in Paris leaves one of them mysteriously afflicted.

Chronicle with a horror twist? I can get behind that. The film was written and directed  by co-stars Derek Lee and Clif Prowse, and it also managed to scoop a Best Horror film award at Fantastic Fest. A competition that regularly sees some top class horror movies debut. Afflicted will be available online from April 4.
