Retro-horror is all the rage at the moment, what with Ti West’s X harking back to the days of the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and now comes The Aviary, which appears to be tapping into a The Hills Have Eyes vibe in order to tell the story of two women attempting to escape from the clutches of a terrifying cult.
Starring Malin Ackerman (Watchmen), Lorenzo Izzo (Knock Knock) and Chris Messina (Birds of Prey), you can check out the creepy new clip below and click here to watch the trailer…
Malin Akerman and Chris Messina star in the twisted journey of two women’s desperate flee to escape the clutches of Skylight, an insidious cult. Lured in by the promise of “freedom” in the isolated desert campus called “The Aviary”, Jillian (Akerman) and Blair (Lorenzo Izzo) join forces to escape in hopes of real freedom. Consumed by fear and paranoia, they can’t shake the feeling that they are being followed by the cult’s leader, Seth (Messina), a man as seductive as he is controlling. The more distance the pair gains from the cult, the more Seth holds control of their minds. With supplies dwindling and their senses failing, Jillian and Blair are faced with a horrifying question: how do you run from an enemy who lives inside your head?
The Aviary arrives in cinemas and on digital platforms on April 29th.
