I’ve never been more terrified of whitespace. The trailer for erotic horror thriller Compulsion has debuted, and it’s full of nightmarish visuals and vignettes worthy of an early Lady Gaga music video. Ra Ra, Ah Ah Ah..
The haunting trailer for Compulsion teases what looks to be a cult, one worthy of addition to the Eyes Wide Shut universe. Set almost entirely in a vast, ornate castle, our creepy cultists will have plenty of space to stretch out, relax, and wreak havoc. Watch the eerie trailer for Compulsion, above.
Sadie, a budding erotic novelist, is enticed by an ex-lover to join him and an enigmatic woman named Francesca at an Italian Villa. Once there, Sadie is confronted by the demons of her past as she becomes embroiled in a surreal game of murder and betrayal.
Compulsion is produced and directed by Canadian filmmaker Craig Goodwill. The screenplay was penned by Brian Clark. Starring are Analeigh Tipton (Warm Bodies), Marta Gastini (The Rite) and Jakob Cedergren (Those Who Kill). Nina Senicar, Anita Kravos, and Jan Bijvoet also star.
Compulsion premiered under the original title of Sadie on November 19th, 2016 at the Torino Film Festival in Italy. It was released in the UK on DVD by Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment on February 5th, 2018. Ketchup Entertainment will be releasing the film in the US on March 6th 2018.
Will you be catching Compulsion? One reviewer on Amazon said the film was a bit slow to start but that there was ‘copious amounts of nudity’ – so there’s something for everyone.. I guess.
