Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.15.20] United Kingdom fantasy

The trailer for Chino Moya's Undergods is brilliant. It doesn't give anything away but builds enough intrigue and mystery to capture attention.

Billed as "An otherworldly journey through a Europe in decline," the film is a collection of darkly humorous tales connected by a visit from a stranger. The stories are set in varying eras, featuring a mix of reality and fantasy along with a cast from across Europe including Kate Dickie (The Witch), Ned Dennehy (Mandy), Geza Rohrig (Son of Saul), Adrian Rawlins (Chernobyl), and Jan Bijvoet (Borgman).

It's a weird and creepy trailer which reveals little of the convoluted story, aside from the suggestion that this may be bookended as a story being told to a child, Princess Bride style, which is both hilarious and wildly inappropriate which makes me want to see this that much more.

Undergods will have its world premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival on August 30.
