After last week’s festival screening of Jennifer Lynch’s Surveillance (our review), I’ve recently become pretty interested in the up-and-coming career of daughter of David Lynch. Lo and behold, despite Surveillance having not even been released commercially yet (to my knowledge), post-production is already complete on her newest project, Hisss:
Based on the Far Eastern myth of the snake woman who is able to take on human form, The Curse of the Cobra Goddess. Anytime man desecrates or violates the cobra, they are doomed to suffer the petrifying curse of the snake woman, of death and infertility. Only respect and worship can keep the population safe and the women fertile.
While the trailer below does look a bit campy in some places, it also has some pretty stunning moments and my guess is it will work pretty well as a super-natural/mythological scare-fest of a thriller. The films stars the beautiful Mallika Sherawat, the great Irrfan Khan and is scheduled to be at Cannes later next month.
