Trailer for The Innocents, one of the horror shocks of the year

The second film from the writer of Joachim Trier is a real slap in the face, as its trailer promises.

The Innocents will be released in French theaters on February 9, and we can only advise you too much to rush to see this little bomb that comes to us from Norway. Presented in the Un certain regard selection at the last Cannes Film Festival, the second film by Eskil Vogt, screenwriter of all films by Joachim Trier (their Julie (in 12 chapters) is one of the best films of the past year), features kids in a Norwegian low-cost housing estate. Kids with disturbing psychic powers … As its French trailer promises, The Innocents is admirably accurate and precise, without ever forgetting to be a great freak movie, which makes Vogt a Nordic cousin of M. Night Shyamalan. Just that ? Yes.
