If there’s anything I’ve learned from environmental horror movies it’s that if the fish and birds start dying, the humans better watch the fuck out. But what exactly is happening in The Block Island Sound?. The trailer doesn’t give us many clues, and although the title refers to a place, my first thought was “is this a sonic weapon or experimentation situation?”. Either way, there’s only one guy who sees what’s happening and, naturally, everyone thinks he’s crazy.
The trailer sets us up for a tense and foggy story of a tight knit fishing community not ready to admit that something is very, very wrong. We see people start to unravel and are left to wonder if it is fear, or something even more sinister, tearing at their sanity.
The Block Island Sound premiers at Fantasia Fest on August 28th, 2020.
