I’ve always been a fan of films set in the ‘60s and ‘70s. That retro look just has a place in my heart that will live on until the heart ceases to beat. That’s part of the reason the trailer for A Kind of Murder immediately caught my attention. It looks beautifully shot, the duds are awesome and the slight noir angle sealed the deal.
If you think I’m overselling it, look at the trailer for yourself:
Now this one looks to obviously be more thriller than horror, but we all know creepy stories are creepy stories, regardless of classification. A Kind of Murder looks like a creepy story. Fortunately for fans, we’ll be able to see the movie in theaters and OnDemand come December 16th.
Andy Goddard directs from a screenplay written by Susan Boyd, who bases the tale from Patricia Highsmith’s novel.
Jessica Biel, Patrick Wilson, Haley Bennet, and Vincent Kartheiser star.
Synopsis: In 1960s New York, Walter Stackhouse is a successful architect married to the beautiful Clara who leads a seemingly perfect life.
