And we’re back: Check out the trailer for Thelma

So after a long hiatus and a couple of months where I posted pretty sporadically solely because my to-do list sometimes requires me to have 35 hours in a day, I’m back, and I have the trailer for supernatural thriller Thelma. It was directed by  Joachim Trier (Louder Than Bombs, Reprise) and it’ll debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, which started Thursday and will go until September 17. Check out the trailer below:

Here’s the synopsis:

“Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo.  While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure.  Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction.  As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures.  As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.”
It looks like Thelma will keep doing the festival rounds and then open in theaters on November 10. It looks interesting. I think there’s really something to be said for movies that make you think and don’t just hand the viewer everything, and at least from the trailer it seems like Thelma will, at the very least, require you to pay attention to follow it.

I'm a regular contributing writer to this website. I got into horror movies through the sci-fi monster films I watched with my dad as a kid (ex. Aliens) and the extreme amounts of zombie movies I spent a good portion of my college career watching. I absolutely love zombies (obviously), am a sucker for a low budget (or any) monster movie, and adore horror-comedy films. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is one of my favorite books, and I'm still waiting for an actually decent film adaptation to bring that fantastic novel to life. Outside of my life as a horror fan, I'm a writer and editor with dreams of turning my screenplays into movies and a love of wine and murder mysteries.
