Brad Dourif Doing What Brad Dourif Does Best in Fading of the Cries Trailers


I could do without the flowery and pretentious sounding title, but you gotta admit, Brian Metcalf looks like he’s done a hell of a lot with what was probably limited resources in these trailers for “Fading of the Cries”. The film’s biggest star is Brad Dourif, who seems to be in full “Lord of the Rings” evil mode here. There are some nifty action scenes, but yes I’ll grant you, the CGI scenes really look like they’re CGI scenes.

It’ll be interesting to see if the finished movie can overcome the film’s “trying to do way too much with way too little” vibe that I’m getting here.

In “Fading of the Cries,” a young man armed with a deadly sword, saves a teenage girl named Sarah from a malevolent evil that has begun plaguing a small farmland town, while in search of an ancient necklace that had belonged to Sarah’s Uncle. The two set out to get to Sarah’s home safely, running through streets, fields, churches and underground tunnels, while being pursued by hordes of demonic creatures.

Starring Brad Dourif, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Elaine Hendrix, Hallee Hirsh, Mackenzie Rosman, Jordan Matthews, and directed by Brian Metcalf.

    I agree with the article, in part. The second trailer I don’t particularly find pretentious. In fact, it’s arguably one of the best trailers I’ve seen this year. It’s not falling back in reliance only on the cgi but it still looks magnificent. I’m not much into horror, though I do have great respect for Brad Dourif as an actor, I mean who doesn’t love Cuckoo’s Nest or Chucky? but I am a fantasy buff so I agree that I hope the final film delivers more on that end. But it looks spectacular, almost enchanting but not in a corny way.

    I think both trailers look pretty good, actually. My pretentious comment was directed purely at the title.
