Everyone may have had their sites set of things they knew about like Amazing Spider-Man and Game of Thrones this year at San Diego Comic-Con, but one film that managed to turn tons of heads (that managed to get into the panel) was Francis Ford Coppola’s newest vampire/witchcraft based film, TWIXT.
Starring Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning, the film takes the world of Vampires and Witches that modern audiences know all too well and gives it an old spin. Here’s the premise.
A writer with a declining career arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He’s unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated.
If Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang taught us anything, it’s that Val Kilmer as a failed anything is much more entertaining and believable than a successful Val Kilmer.m The only unfortunate part of the trailer is the pacing, and how the visuals tend to linger, which would be impressive if they were shots and visual aesthetics that we haven’t seen countless times before.
Judge for yourself and take a look at the trailer after the jump. TWIXT hits theaters later this year.
