You rarely run across trailers that are three-and-a-half minutes long anymore. Back in the day, you got them all the time. Nowadays, it’s practically unheard of. Enter Director Greg A. Sager’s 2012 horror effort “Devil Seed”, a film that isn’t afraid to lay everything out for you in the trailer. Is it pointless to pack your preview with so much exposition? Sure it is. Nobody really needs a three-and-a-half minute preview of anything. But that doesn’t mean somebody can’t make one.
Here’s what this flick is all about:
Alexandra is a lively college student returning to live with her roommates Jessica and Breanne after the summer holidays. After a night of drinking, Alex agrees to a psychic reading to learn about her future with her boyfriend, Brian, but during the reading a dramatic turn of events causes SOMETHING to go drastically wrong. When Alex awakes the next day, she cant remember the events of the night before. She begins to hear creepy noises, hallucinate, black out and receive unidentifiable scratch marks all over her body. Afraid shes going crazy, she seeks help from her friends but Jessica, Breanne and Brian are incapable of comprehending the scope of the darkness descending UPON her. Instead, Alex receives help from a school professor and his father who have dealt with the supernatural before. But as Alexs condition worsens, it becomes apparent that it may already be too late to stop the entity from using Alexs body as a gateway into our world.
Even the IMDb synopsis is crazy long. If you decide to check out “Devil Seed” when it hits DVD on August 7th, 2012, at least you can say you’re well-versed in the storyline. When you’ve got a few minutes to spare, check out that lengthy trailer below.
