We’ve heard some whopper premises for horror movies before, but wait’ll you hear the plot of In The Trap, coming soon from Dark Sky Films. The main character is a man who spends his entire day secluded in his house, deliberately withholding contact from all other human beings, because he believes if he doesn’t, an invisible monster will take hold of him and possess his body. Isn’t that the most far-fetched thing you’ve ever heard?
The guy’s name is Philip, and though he appears to be a deeply religious man, he may be just nuts. He believes he’s been hunted by demons his whole life, and his childhood apartment is the only location where they can’t enter. Of course, this being a horror movie, it’s possible that demons actually ARE after Philip, but neither the trailer nor the PR tip that hand.
One day he makes his first human contact in eons: an attractive woman he can’t help but fall for. If he pursues a life with her, he’ll be exposing himself to the demons…or were there ever demons to begin with? Philip wrestles with this question throughout the picture.
In The Trap will be out on DVD and digital April 10, from Dark Sky Films.
Philip, a young proofreader, has been living in a self-imposed prison. Convinced that an evil force wants to take possession of his soul, he secludes himself in his childhood apartment, the only place where he thinks he’s able to keep himself safe. But a meeting with a mysteriously alluring young woman makes him question his beliefs – have the demons that have haunted him all his life been simply a product of his own imagination, or is this new temptation yet another trap the devil has set for him?
