It’s open (window) season for Nacho Vigalondo…
A new trailer for the 37-year-old Spanish filmmaker’s latest project Open Windows has been released.
Starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey, the film is being called a high tech Hitchcock project. It’s an internet age suspense thriller presented through the lens of a computer desktop.
Wood stars as Nick, a superfan who’s won a dinner with his favorite actress, Jill Goddard (Grey). When she refuses the date a mysterious third party offers Nick a chance to watch Jill secretly through her webcam, sparking a terrifying cat and mouse game.
The real-time thriller premiered in March at SXSW and was partially filmed at Austin’s annual Fantastic Fest where Vigalondo and Wood are frequent guests.
Fantastic Fest’s 2014 edition kicks off September 18 and will host the U.S. premiere of anthology threequel V/H/S Viral, for which Vigalondo directed a segment.
Cinedigm will peel back the curtain on Open Windows first on video on demand on October 2, before it hits theaters on November 7.
Vigalondo’s previous credits include Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial and The ABCs of Death.
