Collider has an exclusive first look at the trailer for the upcoming psychological horror film Fear of Rain, about a teenage girl tormented by terrifying hallucinations that she slowly begins to suspect are all too real.
Written and directed by Castille Landon (After We Fell), Fear of Rain follows Rain Burroughs (Madison Iseman), a teenager diagnosed with schizophrenia who must constantly struggle to determine whether what she is seeing and hearing is reality or a symptom of her mental illness. However, when she begins to see disturbing images of the house next door, she becomes convinced that the hallucinations have something to do with reality and that the house holds a terrible secret. Her parents (Katherine Heigl and Harry Connick, Jr.) try to reassure her that what she’s seeing is all in her head, so she turns to a charming new classmate named Caleb (Israel Broussard) for help. But Caleb himself may not be real either.
The trailer is a suitably creepy collection of the frightening images that keep assaulting Rain, starting with a man chasing her through an ominous forest in the middle of the night. No one believes her that the event actually happened, and the chaotic images only increase in intensity. It looks truly terrifying, as evidenced by the button in the trailer where Rain acknowledges that what she is experiencing could be a manifestation of her own creation and not reality. However, Fear of Rain’s admittedly fantastical take on schizophrenia is a compelling premise for a thriller in which everything we see is constantly questioned. Check out the trailer below. Fear of Rain is rated PG-13 and will be released on VOD on February 12 and on Blu-ray and DVD on February 16.
