Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.28.10] Netherlands movie trailer news drama fantasy



What strikes me most about the trailer for Johan Timmers’ new film The Odd One Out (Vreemd bloed) is how it plays with expectations. Perhaps it's just me but as this trailer unfolds, I keep expecting something to go horribly wrong and the trailer to turn into an all out gore fest of a kid who loses his cool and turns into a psycho serial killer and yet, it never happens.

What else do you expect from a movie about a kid who grows up in a violent family of butchers yet resists falling into the tradition of those before him (becoming a butcher himself) even though he’s forced to partake in the family business from a young age?

The trailer plays like a beautiful nightmare, peppered with surrealism and a touch of a twisted fairy tale, ready to explode in a wall of blood at any moment but if the film manages to have as much restraint as this footage suggests, we may be in for a fantastic surprise.

Trailer after the break.

Yep, sounds like someone has seen and liked TAXIDERMIA. I'm intrigued nonetheless, this film looks bloody handsome!
