Trailer for Carl Tibbetts’s claustrophobic thriller ‘Retreat’
The first proper trailer for Carl Tibbetts’s claustrophobic thriller Retreat has been released. The film made my list of favorite films of the year (so far), and was among one of the best screened at the Fantasia Film Festival this past August. Now the film has a stateside release through Samuel Goldwyn Films and will screen at Fantastic Fest at the end of the month. Tibbetts shows some real flair behind the camera. Clearly a gifted writer and director, he carefully twists the classic survivalist paranoia with somewhat of a home invasion scenario and adds a heap of sexual tension, suspicion, and shifting power dynamics. Enjoy!
