It feels like we’ve been hearing nonstop good things about indie horror We Are Still Here for a while now. People have been intoning names like Lucio Fulci and calling it atmospheric, gory, original, and scary as hell. You get a glimpse of all of that from this new trailer. And it has Barbara Crampton in it, which is always a bonus. Check it out after the jump.
Here’s a synopsis:
After the death of their college age son, Anne and Paul Sacchetti (Barbara Crampton and Andrew Sensenig) relocate to the snowswept New England hamlet of Aylesbury, a sleepy village where all is most certainly not as it seems. When strange sounds and eerie feelings convince Anne that her son's spirit is still with them, they invite an eccentric, New Age couple (Larry Fessenden and Lisa Marie) to help them get to the bottom of the mystery.
They discover that not only are the house's first residents, the vengeful Dagmar family, still there—but so is an ancient power. A primal darkness slumbers under the old home, waking up every thirty years and demanding the fresh blood of a new family.
An altogether new take on the haunted house genre that deftly mixes human drama and comedy, WE ARE STILL HERE is a couple's terrifying journey through darkness and loss set against the freezing New England winter.
It made the festival rounds earlier in the year, but now We Are Still Here is about to finally get a release this weekend, on June 5. And it definitely looks like it was worth the wait.
