The Trailer Park: Hunters and Psychics

A weird combination to say the least, these trailers are related in that they feature very well-respected veteran actors in starring roles, namely Willem Dafoe and Robert De Niro. Both movies are also mysteries with deep, dark secrets at their cores.

‘The Hunter’

I know that IMDb categorizes this as a drama, but based on the trailer, this Willem Dafoe and Sam Neill movie looks more like some kind of wilderness mystery. Or maybe it’s a nature thriller? The 90-second sneak peek is pretty cryptic about the details, but obviously involves the hunt of an animal believed to be extinct and a shadowy group intent on keeping it that way. I can’t be entirely sure, but there are also some hints of the occult, like a plot twist towards the end or something. In either case, the preview has me intrigued to at least rent the movie later down the line.

‘Red Lights’

Starring Robert De Niro, Cillian Murphy and Sigourney Weaver, the latest suspense thriller from Rodrigo Cortés (‘Buried’) looks highly promising. Like a modern-day ‘The Prestige’, except with the very secretive world of psychics, the trailer is quite exciting and spooky. Murphy doesn’t do enough movies stateside with prominent roles, so it’s nice to see him in one with De Niro and Weaver leading the charge. This looks like something to enjoy in theaters, but I’ll more than likely wait for the Blu-ray.

  1. Ugh. Don’t bother with ‘Red Lights’, E. It has, by far, one of the worst endings I’ve ever seen. Unless they completely reshoot the last 10 minutes then there is no point in watching it.
