I must say that I wasn’t thrilled about Wolcher’s Cannibal Fog while watching the trailer, it was only when I read the synopsis that it got me interested. I’m not an avid fan of underground horror especially in such low budget because as you know by now I’m extremely sensitive about camera work and cinematography.
When you watch the trailer for Cannibal Fog – even though it doesn’t really tell us that much about the story – it shows how visually the film really is, and it isn’t that captivating. There are some elements that I thought that they could open my eye and change my mind about it, especially the use of the skeleton mask and the practical effects that seem fair and believable.
The trailer is about 1 minute long with a lot of disturbing images but it starts off really well with some suspense, not giving too much away. You do feel a bit confused throughout the trailer because it shows so much different glimpses of scenes and moments of the film that you don’t really understand what you’re watching. In a way maybe it refers to the state of mind of Michael, the lead character. He finds himself in a moment of his life where he discovers a new exciting substance, like a drug, and gets addicted and disturbed by the meaning of it. If it’s the case then it matches and it makes sense.
I did enjoy the moments where we can read some positive reviews about the film. It’s a great idea to add it to a trailer, to keep the viewer interested in watching the film and although sometimes it doesn’t bring that much to the experience, here it was essential.
If you’re into European indie horror and underground films, Cannibal Fog may be the perfect choice for you.
Although I’m not a fan of the subgenre I’m still curious to watch the whole film, especially after reading the synopsis, since we get the idea that it could be more than it actually shows in the trailer and that… I appreciate.
