The upcoming thriller, True Fiction, looks to take a few cues from the 1990 Stephen King adaptation, Misery, but with the tables turned. Here, instead of a crazed fan holding an author hostage, the writer is the one playing a psychopath. The first trailer for the film recently dropped, and we have it here for you now. Read on for your first look!
Avery Malone, a wannabe writer and lonely librarian, gets her big break when she’s hand-selected to assist her hero, reclusive author, Caleb Conrad. Whisked away to Caleb‘s remote estate, Avery is given her one and only task; to participate in a controlled psychological experiment in fear that will serve as the basis for Caleb‘s next novel.
True Fiction stars Sara Garcia (Stickman and TV’s Reign), John Cassini (Se7en), Julian Black Antelope (Hold the Dark), and Julian Richings (TV’s Supernatural). The film was written and directed by Braden Croft, who has previously helmed the indie horror films Hemorrhage (2012) and Feed the Gods (2014).
The film is set to have its world premiere on May 24th at this year’s Fantaspoa film festival in Brazil, which, with a screening schedule full of horror content, runs May 16 through June 2. At this time, there is no official release date for True Fiction, but be sure to stick with Nightmare on Film Street as we will keep you updated on further details as soon as we learn them.
I haven’t seen either of Croft’s previous films, but the trailer for True Fiction has me sold. With a dread-inducing musical score, competent acting and directing, and big hints of the brutal and psychological games between Sara and Caleb, I’m in! What do you think about the trailer?
