The trailer for IFC Midnight’s “Evolution” is mysterious (how a trailer should be cut) but the film shows a lot of intrigue and the visuals look fantastic and creepy. What is the next step in the chain of Evolution? Perhaps crawling back into the sea as a monstrous witch orgy starfish gang? Only time will tell but until then enjoy the “mesmerizing” trailer for IFC’s “Evolution”
This eerily seductive mind-bender is a dark, dreamlike descent into the depths of the unknown. Ten-year-old Nicolas (Max Brebant) lives in a remote seaside village populated only by boys his age and adult women. But when he makes a disturbing discovery beneath the ocean waves—a dead boy with a red starfish on his stomach—Nicolas begins to question everything about his existence. What are the half-remembered images he recalls, as if from another life? If the woman he lives with is not his mother, then who is she? And what awaits the boys when they are all suddenly confined to a hospital? The long-awaited new film from the acclaimed director of Innocence is awash in the haunting, otherworldly images of a nightmare.
