A still image for The Girl in the Photographs made its way onto the internet leading up to its premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. That image alone was enough to pique my interest, but there was also the attachment of the one and only Wes Craven to the film as a producer. In fact, The Girl in the Photographs will go down as Wes’ final production credit. No pressure, right?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been waiting for more information to come our way in regards to a widespread release – and now we have it. Vertical Entertainment will release the film in limited theaters and VOD platforms on April 1st. No – this is not an April Fools joke. We’ll have a full review (and hopefully a trailer) to share with you guys in the near future. Until then, check out this preview clip while we wait.
Her chance to escape comes in the form of Peter Hemmings, a hipster celebrity photographer who has traveled back to his hometown of Spearfish, South Dakota, with a pack of models, intent on copying the killers’ intense and unapologetic artistry. When he learns Colleen is the killers’ muse, Peter resolves to make her his own and use her as the centerpiece of a photo campaign in Los Angeles.
But before Colleen can leave her old life behind, she must contend with the desires of her murderous stalkers who have chosen her last night in town to execute their most provocative work to date.
