Queen of Earth (dir. Alex Ross Perry) is a psychological thriller that chronicles the breakdown of two women while they're on vacation at a lake house. The most intriguing aspect to this film is the way the film details someone's mental collapse through Elizabeth Moss' character.
Even through the trailer the audience can get an idea of the transformation that Moss goes through over the course of the film. There's something really interesting about the way the trailer outlines the mental instability of Moss' character. While watching, I was unsure of what the movie was about but it quickly became clear about midway through when Moss mentions murder.
The way the trailer was cut is also pretty interesting. It's almost like an homage to horror films from the 1970s. The way the title of the movie appears on screen and thew gravel-voiced narrator are both two characteristics that appeared in trailers during that time. Maybe the full feature will also include moments that call back to older horror movies.
Queen of Earth will be in theaters August 26th, 2015
