Trailer: The Disappearance of Alice Creed

 

 
Back in September a few of us around here were lucky enough to attend the Toronto International Film Festival. Still luckier were those of us who managed to catch one of these hidden gems that for some unfathomable reason didn’t seem to get a whole lot of buzz or chatter going on. The Disappearance of Alice Creed (Andrew’s review) was a treat of the highest caliber goodness.

Going in to this film with as little information as possible is really important. While I’d almost say that there shouldn’t even be a trailer at all, obviously there has to be some bit of marketing. Thankfully Anchor Bay and filmmakers know how to keep things fairly tight under wraps and only give you just a taste of what’s in store for you here.

The chemistry between the two leads (Marsan and Compston) is magnificent and I had the chance to meet both of them and can confirm their graciousness and friendly demeanor. Two nicer guys, happy as hell to have fans and talk with them I’ve never met. Trust me, you’ll want to see this one when it gets out. Those who have seen it can confirm. Best of indie thrillers is personified right here…

  1. I've actually seen several people on Twitter say not to watch the trailer at all. I think I'm gonna take that advice. Looks like they're marketing it as a thriller; for some reason I had it as more horror in my head – which is it?

    • NOT a horror movie. It's a thriller. There is one thing in the trailer I think could be construed as a spoiler, but I think you'd only know it's a spoiler if you've seen the movie.

      But yeah, if you're planning on seeing the movie anyway, no reason to watch the trailer. Take my word for it, the movie is awesome. I think Kurt (and maybe Rot?) can back that up.

  2. That actually makes me a lot more excited to see it. I was highly intrigued by y'all's comments on it around TIFF, and I've seen several other recommendations for it from bloggers I trust, but I'm still a little wary of horror-esque films (though I'm getting over it). If it's definitely a thriller, I'm totally down and I don't need to watch the trailer to convince me.

  3. A snap-tight plot engine and a solid amount of character development makes this one a winner. It's not particularly deep or enlightening on the human condition, but as crime thrillers go, it is solid entertainment, and shows why Gemma Arterton is completely wasted in CGI swill like Prince of Persia and Clash of the Titans. She is awesome here.
