Video: It’s often said that some cultures believe taking someone’s picture steals a piece of their soul. That seems like getting off easy compared to what happens in Polaroid.
Oh, this isn’t good. Image: YouTube
Polaroid, a new horror film directed by Lars Klevberg, is basically about a camera that kills you. Once it takes your photo, a shadow shows up and that’s all she wrote. Or, something like that. Check out the trailer.
Yes, that was Riverdale‘s Madelaine Petsch (AKA Cheryl Blossom) at the beginning, though it feels like she may have the Drew-Barrymore-in-Scream role this time around. The rest of the very attractive young cast are relative unknowns.
Honestly, the trailer didn’t really grab me until the very end when the girl gets, well, grabbed. Whatever is on the other end of those hands is something I want to see.
The film opens August 25 in the US — an Australian release date has not yet been announced.
