Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.15.21] horror

The opening images of the trailer for Jordan Graham's Sator are striking: the black and white combined with the voice over are eerie and for a moment, I thought this was a documentary. And then the trailer kicks into color, the mystery grows and by the end of the trailer, though I wasn't sure what was happening, I was completely sold on seeing this movie.

I'm not even going to attempt to guess what's happening here. The official synopsis reads:

Secluded in a desolate forest home to little more than the decaying remnants of the past, a broken family is further torn apart by a mysterious death. Adam, guided by a pervasive sense of dread, hunts for answers only to learn that they are not alone; an insidious presence by the name of Sator has been observing his family, subtly influencing all of them for years in an attempt to claim them.

That certainly wasn't clear from the trailer but what did come through loud and clear is a sense of dread and mystery.

Sator spent the majority of 2020 playing the festivals, everything from Fantasia to Telluride Horror Show, and for those of us that missed it during the festival run, we'll have a chance to catch up with it soon enough.

Sator with be available to purchase and rent on February 9.

Recommended Release: Relic
