IFC Midnight has released the trailer for Albert Shin‘s upcoming horror-thriller Disappearance at Clifton Hill, which looks a bit Lynchian in its combination of mystery and surreal terror, so naturally, I’m all in. The film stars Tuppence Middleton, Hannah Gross, David Cronenberg (nice!), Eric Johnson, and Marie Josée-Croze.
Disappearance At Clifton Hill opens in theaters and on VOD platforms February 28th.
Following the death of her mother, Abby (Tuppence Middleton, The Imitation Game, Downton Abbey), a troubled young woman with a checkered past, returns to her hometown of Niagara Falls and the dilapidated motel her family used to run. While there, she finds herself drawn once again into a mystery that has haunted her since childhood: what happened to the young boy she saw being violently abducted in the woods twenty-five years ago?
As Abby sets out to find out the truth, she must confront both a shocking, long-buried conspiracy that runs as deep as the falls themselves as well as her own inner demons.
Bristling with an air of surreal menace, this mood-drenched thriller is a tantalizing psychological puzzle box that unfolds in the hallucinatory realm between reality and perception.
