Christopher Webster [Celluloid 09.20.09] Canada movie trailer news horror thriller

The first trailer has arrived for Phone Booth / Cellular writer, Larry Cohen's, new one Messages Deleted. It's got a kind of tightly-wound I Know What You did Last Summer meets 88 Minutes vibe to it so I think it definitely has the potential to be a decedent mid-budget thriller.

A quivering voice begs screenwriter, Joel Brandt, to pick up the phone on a message from his answering machine. Thinking its a prank, Joel deletes the message. The caller is found dead. Another caller leaves Joel a message; there is another murder...then another...then another. The killer has Joel's attention, and Joel now has the attention of the police.

Now the prime suspect in a series of murders, Joel discovers this psychotic killer has targeted him for a reason found within his body of work. Will Joel be able to re-write his ending, or be forced to pay the ultimate price?

Messages Deleted stars Matthew Lillard and the beauteous Deborah Kara Unger. It's actually the directorial debut from horror producer Rob Cowan (who is currently producing The Crazies). There's no word on the film's official release date but I know it's done because it screened at the European Film Market back in February.
