The trailer has arrived for Hatching, a Finnish horror film that looks perfect for those that like their body horror and unsettling family depictions.Â
The film follows Tinja (Siiri Solalinna), a 12-year-old girl who is desperate to please her image-obsessed, difficult mother. One day, Tinja discovers a mysterious egg. She decides to take it home and take care of it. It hatches and what it releases… well, yeeeeesh.
A potent trailer below, kicking off with a disturbing moment early and leading to flashes of what looks like some pretty out-there horror. A potentially unique bit of icky cinema here. One qualm: the trailer includes a reveal towards the end that feels a tad spoilerish, although, of course, it remains to be seen if it was better kept under wraps.
This attention-grabbing work marks the feature debut for Finnish helmer Hanna Bergholm, who has previously crafted a number of short films. The script was written by Ilja Rautsi.
Looking forward to being shaken up by this one! Hatching, also starring Sophia HeikkilÃ¤, Saija Lentonen, and Jani Volanen, will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 22nd and be released in U.S. cinemas and VOD on April 29th.
