I wasn't sure what to expect before I watched the trailer for Amnesiac. But I definitely was not expecting to be absolutely afraid of Kate Bosworth by the end of it. From the start of the trailer to the end, Bosworth is one hundred percent (full success) a living nightmare.
Amnesiac is about a man who suffers from memory loss but suddenly starts to realize that his wife might not be his wife at all. The trailer succeeds in telling us this story without giving too much away. That's important for a small indie thriller like this one because audiences might not take a chance on it if it's all spelled out for them in 2 minutes.
And when that's paired with Bosworth's portrayal of her character, my anticipation for the full feature skyrockets. There's something very unsettling about Bosworth's acting. It's cold, it's obvious that something is "off" but not too obvious (at least in the beginning) and she has very strong and powerful presence on-screen. I can't wait to see this one in the theaters and fail to sleep for days afterwards.
Amnesiac will be in theaters on August 14th, 2015
