Trailer & Poster for Pascal Laugier’s ‘Ghostland’

by Phil Wheat

Pascal Laugier is a director with a reputation… After all, when you make a film like Martyrs, you’re bound to get pigeon-holed into the “extreme cinema” category. However Laugier’s first film post-Martyrs, The Tall Man, wasn’t met with as much… praise… Which is probably why the French director has taken 6 years to follow that film up with another spooky tale: Ghostland (aka Incident in a Ghostland), which stars Crystal Reed, Anastasia Phillips, Mylene Farmer, Emilia Jones, and Taylor Hickson.

Following the death of her aunt, Pauline and her two daughters inherit a house. But the first night, murderers enter the house and Pauline must fight to save her daughters. A drama that will traumatize the whole family but especially affect differently each of the girls whose personalities will diverge further after this nightmarish night. While Beth becomes a renowned author specializing in horror literature, Vera gets bogged down in destructive paranoia. Sixteen years later, the family is reunited again in the house that Vera and Pauline never left. Strange events then begin to occur…

Directed by Pascal Laugier, Ghostland opens in France on 14th March 2018.
