It can be incredibly difficult to convey an interesting story by using well-worn horror tropes, be they zombies, vampires, or werewolves. But When Animals Dream, the new film from Danish filmmaker Jonas Alexander Arnby, is a smart little movie that eschews the traditions of its given drama — you can read my review here. Starring Sonia Suhl as the young woman afflicted with a gradual and terrifying transformation, When Animals Dream is set to debut in theaters and VOD this weekend and we’ve got the new trailer for the subversive take on a familiar genre.
When Animals Dream opens in select theaters and VOD this Friday, August 28th, 2015.
The official synopsis for When Animals Dream:
A teenage girl’s sexual awakening unleashes something primal within, revealing a dark family secret. On the run and in mortal danger, embracing a century’s old curse will be her only way to survive.
