Hair-Raising ‘God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen’ in ‘Body’ Trailer [WATCH VIDEO]

The real measure of horror is when it can be felt in your system and be pictured in your reality. Directors Dan Berk and Robert Olsen give us a glimpse on how they envisioned it in the trailer of “Body.” Read on to find out more about this preview.

Over the years, horror/thriller genre has always been hard to gauge with the many exploring details that a filmmaker can actively delve upon. They have the choice to either make it bloody, downright scary, surprising or disturbing. In the latest accounts of recognized films, the trend seems to linger on the movies having a dash of reality embedded into its storyline’s very core. It premieres some sort of relation to the karmic consequences that the universe would bestow upon every individual. For co-directors and co-writers of “Body,” they exemplified what it means when things that go around always manage to come around.


You would think that there’s absolutely no way for a Christmas song to be sung eerily, but you are greatly mistaken. In the trailer of “Body,” your hairs will definitely raise in their monotonously sung version of “God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen,” accompanied by a suspense-ridden tune that tells you something bad is going to transpire before your very eyes. And it does.

The film basically follows after three women, played by Helen Rogers, Alexandra Turshen and Lauren Molina, as they break into an empty mansion and ends up unintentionally killing the housekeeper in the process. The three young lasses then face a mental spiral towards self destruction as they contemplated on what they would do with the lifeless body lying on the open living room. Check out the trailer here.

According to Indiewire, the trailer of “Body” packs hair-raising scenes that remind people there’s still enough room for original horror movies in Hollywood today. As it would appear co-writers and co-directors of the film, Berk and Olsen, are hoping to bring the same successive eerie impressions that Jennifer Kent’s “Babadook,” Adam Wingard’s “The Guest” and David Robert Mitchell’s “It Follows” managed to deliver unto their audiences.

“Body” will first be screened at the Slamdance Film Festival on Jan. 25, 2014. Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates on upcoming movies.
