That wasn’t just the amusing start to this red band trailer, those are genuine words by Harry Knowles from Ain’t It Cool. But in all fairness, the film does look fucking amazeballs. Gyllenhaal plays a young man who stumbles upon the underground of L.A freelance crime journalism. This new trailer showcases some of the dark humour elements of the film and the questionable psychological state of Gyllenhaal’s character, whilst being littered with glowing reviews from critics and played to some well-fitting rap music.
Nightcrawler looks phenomenal. As you can tell from the trailer, critics reactions have been very promising and it looks to be one of the best films of the year. If you don’t have any plans for Halloween, then this dark crime film might be a good way to spend the evening. After all, Jake Gyllenhaal’s messed up character and his for some reason plastic-looking face are probably more terrifying than any horror film you’ll see.
Nightcrawler is out 31st October.
