According to a couple of commenters in our last “After” post, the twist of “After” is nothing I will see coming. I will have to take their word for it, because frankly, I’m not so sure. I’ve seen a LOT of movies with this exact same premise, and without sounding too proud of myself, it’s going to take director Ryan Smith and company something pretty novel and unique and never been done before to surprise me. I’m just saying, guys, you have my interest, but I’m throwing down the gauntlet. Surprise me, if you can. Until then, here are two clips and a new, longer trailer for “After” to chew on.
When two bus crash survivors (Steven Strait, Karolina Wydra) awake to discover that they are the only people left in their small town, they must form an unlikely alliance in a race to unravel the truth behind their isolation. As strange events begin to unfold, they start to question whether the town they know so well is really what it seems.
Starring Steven Strait, Karolina Wydra, Sandra Lafferty, and Madison Lintz.
“After” opens in limited release September 14, 2012.
